The Triathlon 220 2017 awards are here and it’s time to pick your favourites!
2016 was a huge year for triathlon, from Rio to the famous brotherly love in Mexico with Allister carrying Jonny Brownlee over the finish line and into the hearts of the British press. We saw popularity in triathlon grow, new races pop up all over the country and enough new tech to blow your mind.
Each year 220 magazine - the bible of all triathletes, host their annual awards. Call it the Oscars of the triathlon world, with less handbags and gladrags more nipple chafe and helmet hair.
How to vote:
Following the first round of triathlon mad voters sending 220 their favourite athletes, 220 had the job of whittling down the many nominee’s to just five entries per category, it was as tearful as the X factor judges house.
