         Manson triathlete comes in first; top female has Olympic hopes
         By Ken Ross
         Graphic-Advocate Editor
           Taylor Huseman, a 2011 graduate of Manson High
         School, won the first Triathlon he ever competed in
         on Aug. 6 during the annual Twin Lakes half Olympic
         distance sanctioned event.
           Huseman, son of Brenda and Frank Huseman of
         Manson, turns 19 in September after he begins college
         at the University of South Dakota with a double major
         in Sports Medicine and Music.
           Running has been his primary focus of athletic
         participation in the past and he will be running at
         USD. He trained for the swimming and biking parts
         of the Triathlon but still regarded the three-event
         competition as an adjustment to his previous activities.
         Swimming was the most difficult part because fog
         made it difficult to see where he was going.
           Regardless of the difficulties, Huseman was able to
         overcome them and finish with a time of 1:04:55, two
         minutes and one second ahead of the second place
         time of Karl Larsen of Decorah. Larsen had also come
         in second last year. He shaved several minutes off of
         his time from last year and, in fact, had a better time
         than the winning time last year.                                                                                                                                                                            Youth dominated the top performances at the fifth annual
