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%.

Ms. Triathlete went to work in the offseason and it paid off. Her best 3 local races this year were a 40%, 30%, and 20%, averaging to 30%... a 10% improvement from last year.

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!
