ONE LAST TRI (International) - Itinerant military guy JASON TOTH relocated from Rhinebeck, New York, to Eagan last year. A decorated multisportsman, he immediately made his presence felt with a Top 10 effort at Superior Man, followed by three straight wins: Square Lake, One Last Tri  and Central Lakes Duathlon.

Toth's 2017 resume features two wins, the most recent being a successful defense at OLT last Sunday, where his margin of victory was a flabby  8:03.

Jason's wife KIERANN is also an accomplished multisporter. Her 2017 scorecard features a win at Hoot Lake, a 3rd at Superior Man 41.5 and two 2nds, one of which was at OLT Olympic, where she was runner-up to 2015 Minnesota Triathlete of the Year SUZIE FOX, whose victory was her 3rd of the season and 41st of her stellar career.

Rounding out the women's podium on Sunday was profilic racer with a perpetual smile, JEN NEUMAN, who has eleven career multisport wins to her credit.

One Last Tri Olympic celebrated its dozenth anniversay last weekend, and approximately one hundred athletes crossed the finish line.  RESULTS

 

ONE LAST TRI (Sprint) - Juniors rocked out the OLT Sprint last Sunday, taking 3rd, 4th, 7th and 10th places overall; and two of the Top 5 spots in the women's race.

Leading the way for the male teens was Cambridge's JACK HENNEN, 17, who finished 3rd overall  behind winner JON DELANEY and elite master JOHN SHELP. We were unable to dig up much stuff about Delaney, and it's possible that he is a newcomer to multisports. He's only 21 and possesses impressive running and cycling skills. We hope he races often next season.

Back to the junior boys....

 

Other teens who Top Tennned were CARTER DEICHMAN (4th), ANDERS BROMEN (7th) and TAYLOR LUNDQUIST (10th). Like Hennen, Lundquist, 18, placed 3rd overall in her gender. For Taylor, it was her 6th overall podium finish of the year. More impressively, three of those efforts were outright wins.

Also cracking the women's Top 5 was SIMONE LUNDQUIST, 15, Taylor's sister. Simone's 2017 resume features six overall Top 10 finishes, including at 2nd (behind Taylor) at Young Life Sprint.
