Very excited to announce the inaugural Utah Tri Buzz MOST IMPROVED TRIATHLETE Awards for 2017.
This isn't a perfect science, but it's our best effort to recognize people who stepped up their game this season on the local scene.
The methodology is pure math, comparing everyone's top 3 results from 2016 to 2017.
As an example, let's say Jane Triathlete's best 3 Utah races in 2016 were 60th out of 100 (60%) at local tri 1, 80th out of 200 (40%) at local tri 2, and 100th out of 500 (20%) at local tri 3. The average of those 3 results = 40%.
Keep in mind that going forward, these and other awards will be based on the UTAH TRIATHLON CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES, which will give a little more structure and standardization to the process.
So without further adieu, below is everyone who improved at least 5% in 2017.
Please share with friends on the list!
