MINNESOTA MULTISPORT HONORS - Here are the four nominees, and their 2019 highlights, for MINNESOTA MALE MASTER OF THE YEAR:

 

DAN ARLANDSON, 53, BURNSVILLE (photo L)

- 1st Master / 3rd overall amateur / 10th w/ pros at Ironman Wisconsin - 9:20:31

- 1st Master / 5th overall @ Chisago Lakes Half IM - 4:20:39

- 13th overall / 3rd AG @ Ironman 70.3 Madison - 4:28:09

COMMENT:  A long distance specialist, Dan's resume is a bit thin, and his effort at Madison 70.3 was marginally competitive. But his performances at IMOO and Chisago were truly outstanding. In fact, his IM Wisconsin effort was arguably the Performance of the Year by a Minnesota male master....
