"A Lot in Common"....

sibs.pngED. Here is a cool article in a local online newspaper serving communities in the northwest metro, about the siblings KRISTINA and KYLE SWENSON, both of whom are nominated for 2019 Minnesota Multisport Honors.

Some siblings have nothing in common. 

Rogers/Maple Grove natives and St. Michael-Albertville students Kristina and Kyle Swenson are not in that number.

Not only do the sister and brother have a lot in common, they will attend the same university and are both internationally competitive triathletes.

Kristina, 22, is a senior at Iowa State University currently studying in France before graduating this spring. Kyle, 17, is a senior at St. Michael-Albertville High School, where Kristina is a graduate. Like his sister, Kyle will be attending Iowa State and competing for the same college triathlon club his sister currently belongs to.

TIP OF ICEBERG
The Swenson kids grew up in Maple Grove with parents Greg and Jamie and attended St. John’s Lutheran School in Maple Grove before the family relocated to Rogers. Greg and Jamie Swenson are lifelong Maple Grove residents who graduated from Osseo High School.....

 

The stellar Swenson siblings’ success in triathlons is the tip of the iceberg for feats they have accomplished. Kristina is president of the Triathlon Club at Iowa State, as well as a Collegiate Commissioner for the Midwest Region of the USA Triathlon Association, the governing body of the sport of triathlon. Kyle is the captain of the STMA cross country team. He is also a swim captain, sings in the choir, competes in track and plays on the summer soccer travel club.

Kyle, a 4.0 gpa student, also received a Minnesota State High School League Excel Award for students who excel in leadership, activities and academics. READ MORE
