With 65 athletes, team dinners prove to be one of the biggest logistical challenges. But Donna Trauger, the wife of one of the original members of the team, makes it look easy. The team dinners are a time for the athletes to learn about each other’s’ diverse careers and lives outside of sport. After all, despite frequent podium performances, the athletes on Team EMJ are not professional triathletes and all have “day jobs.”
And of course, a trip to Vegas wouldn’t be complete without a night out on the town, as the Team Every Man Jack motto is #CleanUpNice!
