220 Triathlon Awards 2018: Meet the winners!

The votes are in, and have been counted... (drum roll please)... so without further ado, meet the 220 Triathlon award winners of 2018...

2018 proved another phenomenal year for the sport of tri, with records tumbling across the globe, new races making their mark on a bumper-packed tri calendar and brands continuing to strive for ever-greater performance advancements. And if that wasn't enough, the first-ever paratriathlete made her debut on one of the country's top entertainment shows, Strictly Come Dancing. At the time of writing, Lauren Steadman was poised to dance in the semi-finals. 

As has become customary, we asked you to nominate and vote for the athletes, races and products that made your tri year. And the final results from the two rounds of voting are now in! So without any further ado we give you the winners and two runner-ups in the 2018 220 Triathlon Awards…

220 TRIATHLON GAME CHANGER OF THE YEAR

1. Super League 

2. Zwift

3. ITU Mixed Relays

220 says: 

"Super League has taken the traditional swim/bike/run format and turned it on its head, to provide an all-out, give-it-your-all-and-then-some multisporting spectacle for the digital age. With this Series, co-founder Chris McCormack has moved triathlon up several levels, beloved of athletes, spectators and media alike, and we can’t wait to see how far he can go with it. If nothing else, the Short Chute should feature in ALL televised triathlons!"

THE JANE TOMLINSON AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION TO TRIATHLON

1. Lucy Gossage

2. Tim Don

3. Simon Ward

220 says: 

"Our vote goes to Lucy Gossage for her incredible work away from triathlon as much as for her contribution to it. She’s a true inspiration to all endurance athletes, and continues to achieve astounding results on the Ironman pro circuit despite a punishing work schedule as a full-time cancer doctor. For this, she is a thoroughly deserved recipient of this poignant award. Jane would be proud."
