220 Triathlon Awards 2019 winners announced

The year of 2019 proved another phenomenal 12 months for the sport of triathlon, with outstanding performances across all distances.

October’s Ironman World Championships in Kona were full of excitement with Jan Frodeno winning his third full Ironman world title in a record-breaking time, Anne Haug taking her first Hawaii win after a phenomenal run and GB’s Ruth Purbrook scoring age-group honours. There was also a Kona debut from a certain Ali Brownlee. What will 2020 hold for him?

Over in the Ironman 70.3 Worlds in Nice, France, 23-year-old Gustav Iden from Norway put on a run masterclass to take victory over his male rivals, including second placed Ali Brownlee, and Britain’s Holly Lawrence showed she was back on top form with a second place behind women’s winner Daniela Ryf.

There was also British success in the ITU World Series, with Jess Learmonth and Georgia Taylor-Brown showing they could be a force to reckon with in Tokyo 2020 after finishing the season in second and third place behind the USA’s Katie Zafares. And don’t write off Javier Gomez’s Olympic medal chances either, with a third place finish in the 2019 series proving the Spaniard is still very much a contender.

As has become customary, we asked you to vote for the athletes, races and products that made your tri year. And the final results from the voting are now in! So without any further ado we give you the winners and two runner-ups in the 2019 220 Triathlon Awards…
