Alexander Hinton Hinton had a tough year with a crash in Barbados, where he finished fifth and broke his nose in Tiszaujvaros, but still rallied to finish 13th for Canada’s top finish at the world championships.
Amelie Kretz How does our Triathlete of the Year not win our U23 title? Kretz won the national championship, led a Canadian podium sweep in Edmonton, placed third at the worlds, second in Mazatlan, Mexico and won in Bridgetown, Barbodos. In recognition of how close things were for our overall triathlete of the year award, we figured we’d give Kretz the nod here.
