Triathlete of the Year
Performingon the world stage has always been one of the requirements for our overall Triathlete of the Year, and Calgarian Ellen Pennock did that in style this year in London. As the lead group neared the finish line, it was Pennock who made the first move, splintering the lead pack and leading the charge to the line. While she came just a second short of the gold, Pennock proved that she has what it takes to compete with the world’s best when it matters most, which is what tipped the scales in our final call to name her the 2013 Triathlete of the Year.
