THOUSAND OAKS, CA - NOVEMBER 22: Professional Triathlete Jordan Rapp poses for a portrait on November 22, 2013 with a snapshot of the accident scene someone took with a camera phone in Thousand Oaks, California. A Princeton University rowing team member, Rapp began training for triathlons after sustaining an injury training for the U.S. National Rowing Team. A relative newcomer to the sport of triathlon, Rapp surprised many by winning two Ironman competitions soon after starting the sport. But on March 23, 2010, he was a victim of a hit and run car accident while out riding his bike. Rapp suffered numerous broken bones including his clavicle and scapula, as well as contusions and lacerations about the head and neck. Rapp lost between two and three liters of blood as a result of the accident. His life was saved by Chief Petty Officer Thomas Sanchez, who came across the accident and put pressure on Rapp's severed jugular. The suspect, Marco Garcia-Ortiz, 27, was thought to have fled to Mexico. Recovery took months, but Rapp returned to win Ironman Canada in August 2011, followed by several other long distance multisport events.
