Brent and Annika Peacock have been competing in the same triathlete and duathlete competitions across the country since Annika graduated from Jackson Hole High School in 2021.

Annika Peacock, 20, a 2021 Jackson Hole High School graduate and current Brigham Young University student, will board a plane today with her mother, Nola, bound for Europe and the adventure of a lifetime.
