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....

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.
