Female Grand Master Performance of the Year...

 

robint.pngThus far we have revealed our unofficial picks for Juniors, Male Masters and Male Grand Master Performances of the Year (2019). In each case, the official MMH honoree also took the unofficial POY title.

Until now.

Our selection for Female Grand Master POY was not even nominated for GMOY, though we gave serious thought to nominee Pam Stevens' record-setting performances at Timberman and Heart of the Lakes.

After scrutinizing all of the women's 55-and-above performances in our state in 2019, we came away impressed with the efforts that "pushed the needle," which is another way of saying that they came very close to "raising the bar."  Megan Webster (Square Lake Sprint), Tracy Serreyn (Maple Grove), Lisa Hines (Graniteman races), Rhiannon O'Connor (New Bri), Helen Gunther (Timberman) were some of the needle pushers.

Male Grand Master Performance of the Year...

 

Ttonynationals.pngONY SCHILLER, 61, is one of the most talented Grand Masters in the World, not just the USA or the Midwest region. It was obvious to us, therefore, that one of his 2019 results would be the unofficial GM Performance of the Year.

Let's look at his 2019 resume:

- 8th overall / 1st 50+ at Lake Minnetonka - A truly remarkable peformance, his 1:08:52 lowered the 10-year-old 60-64 record by 5:35, a mark that was set by national classer Ben Ewers.

- 8th overall / 1st 50+ at Heart of the Lakes - At age 60 in 2018, Tony nuked the old 60-64M record by 9:06. In '19 at age 61, he improved on that 1:40:24, taking it down to 1:39:02.

- 1st AG @ USA Triathlon AG Nationals (Olympic Distance) - Against a 106-member 60-64 field, he beat the next fastest guy by 3:51.

- 1st AG @ USA Triathlon AG Nationals (Sprint) - His margin of victory over the second place man in the 63-finisher field was exactly 1-minute.
