Lukas Verzbicas Biography
Lukas Verzbicas was January 6, 1993 in Kaunas, Lithuania and is a Lithuanian-American triathlete. A prominent high school track and cross country runner, Verzbicas holds the U.S. high school national record in the 2 mile with a time of 8:29.46. He is also the fifth American high school boy to run a sub four-minute mile, running 3:59.71 at the end of his senior year of high school.
In 2012, Verzbicas planned to attend classes at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs in Colorado Springs, CO as member of USAT's Elite Triathlon Academy before making the decision to leave school and train full-time as a professional triathlete at the Olympic Training Center. In January 2012, citing an unspecified broken bone, Verzbicas failed to finish his first professional triathlon race, the Pan American Championships in La Paz, Argentina. However, by June 2012 Verzbicas was making waves in the professional triathlon world by defeating established professionals and olympic qualifiers to win the 2012 Dallas ITU Triathlon Pan American Cup in Dallas, TX as well as the 2012 Banyoles ITU Triathlon World Cup in Barcelona, Spain.
On July 31, 2012 Verzbicas was involved in a bicycle accident while training in Colorado Springs. Bob Babbit of Competitor Magazine reported via Twitter that Verzbicas had a broken collarbone, blood in his lungs and was scheduled for back surgery the following day. The results of the surgery were released on August 14, 2012 and indicated that Verzbicas had a broken collarbone, 2 fractured vertebra, and a collapsed lung. Verzbicas suffered post-op paralysis in his right leg but slowly regained motor control in it. Since then Verzbicas has begun training again and competed in the 2013 Carlsbad 5000.
