Matt McElroy SENDS IT #ForTheWin in The Team USA Mixed Relay

The mixed team relay, or "MTR" is the latest creation by the ITU, and features the fastest countries, competing as teams of two men and two women. Each athlete does a super sprint triathlon before "handing off" to the next athlete in their team.

Matt anchored the USA team, maintaining a lead built up by Katie Zaferes. Other team members include Eli Hemming and Kirsten Kasper.

"A.I. tribute CLAIM @alwaysandyirons I dream about moments like this. #AIForever "

Matt Grew up surfing. A lot.

Andy Irons was one of the greatest pro surfers of all time, and recently passed away.

This finish line celebration or "claim" was his signature.
