41 is a veteran triathlete?

I suppose in an event where 160lb puts you into the “Athena” category, over forty can be the seniors tour.  Nevertheless, I loved this article about a 41 year old triathlete that is leading the way in Arkansas.

Presumably the US has some sort of program like we to in Canada, where kids as young as 10-12 are participating in the Kids of Steel triathlons.  If you start then, by the time you’re 40, you’ve been a triathlete for 25 years, or by the time you’re your twenties, you’re Simon Whitfield and graduating from KOS into the Olympics.
