2012 Minnesota Multisport Award Winners


The Minnesota Multisport Awards selection process is a highly democratic deal. Committee members study resumes and results, paying special attention to stuff like field quality, head-to-head performances, racing volume, versatility, i.e. whether athletes excelled in a single area, say, short course triathlon, or in multiple areas, i.e. short course tri, long course tri and duathlon; and speed.

It's not enough to simple win races. There is so much more to consider.

The Committee then gets together a half dozen times to discuss their ideas and observations, often loudly and not without occasional rancor. Somehow the members manage to remain friends. They then return to their homes and email their pics, i.e. their rankings of the nominees in each category, to the Committee Chairman.
