Kemper claimed the last of three spots on the U.S. men's team for the Beijing Olympics by beating his main rival for the berth, Andy Potts, in the Hy-Vee Triathlon.
Tears streamed down his cheeks as Kemper, wrapped in an American flag, crossed the finish line. The 32-year-old athlete from Colorado Springs, Colo., also competed for the United States in the 2000 and 2004 Olympics.
Denmark's Rasmus Henning won the World Cup race for the second straight year, collecting a $200,000 prize.
Matthew Reed and Jarrod Shoemaker qualified for the U.S. team earlier.
