ORRINGTON - An Orrington native is preparing for the race of his life. Christopher Blanchard is one of many athletes around the globe who recently qualified for the 2013 London International Triathlon Union (ITU) Aquathlon World Championships taking place in September at the same venue as the 2012 Olympics. He did so by being one of the top 10 finishers in his age group at the Lake Logan Aquathlon race in North Carolina earlier this month.   

"I was psyched," Blanchard said. "I was super excited because I had tried to qualify for nationals in triathlon at a competition in Massachusetts and didn't. Then we started looking at qualifying for Team USA Aquathlon."
