Luke, Thomas, Tony & Pam...


MINNESOTA MULTISPORT HONORS - Here are the offical nominees for 2019 GRAND MASTER OF THE YEAR:


LUKE HARNED, 67, Mahtomedi

Luke was one of three 65-69 men, along with perennial nominee (and former GMOY) Neil King, and Len Klun, battling for a GMOY nomination. Though Harned won his division in all five of his regional starts, setting AG records in four of them, his resume was perceived only slightly superior to King's. We would have loved to see a head-to-head confrontation between those talented athletes.


THOMAS ROHMAN, 72, West Haven

Also nominated in 2018, Thomas is redefining the performance standards in our state for men over age-70. He crushed the course records in all four of the regional races he competed in last season.



TONY SCHILLER, 61, Eden Prairie

Our state has several "Triathlon Outliers," that is, athletes who outperform what is statistically predictable. Jan Guenther is one such athlete. So is  Tony Schiller. At 61, he still cracks the Top 10 in highly competitive regional events. In 2019, he placed 8th overall at Lake Minnetonka and Heart of the Lakes, then turned in decisive AG victories at both Olympic and Sprint Nationals. He has never been just one of our region's best.  Like Jan, he has always been "World Class."

Tony is an eight-time MMH honoree.


PAM STEVENS, 66, Sartell

A perennial GMOY nominee and three-time MMH winner, Pam was, once again, undefeated in her AG in regional action last season, as well as at Boulder 70.3.
