2015 British Triathlon Awards recognise the best in tri

Non Stanford, Jonny Brownlee and Lucy Gossage among the athletes receiving awards at the annual event

Last night saw British Triathlon host their annual awards event, recognising the best from every aspect of the world of triathlon.

Held in a venue just outside London, 220 Triathlon attended the awards ceremony and dinner which saw leading athletes, coaches, age-groupers and triathlon officials come together to celebrate a fantastic year for the sport as well as to look ahead to next year’s Olympics. 

The evening began with a moment of reflection to remember French triathlete and coach Laurent Vidal, who sadly died earlier this week aged just 31 (see story here). 

Many athletes attended the event which saw Jonny Brownlee awarded male elite triathlete of the year and Vicky Holland female elite triathlete of the year. In the long distance categories it was Lucy Gossage and 220 columnist Tim Don who took the wins, while the junior categories were won by Kate Waugh and Ben Dijkstra.

Lauren Steadman and George Peasgood were awarded the paratriathlete of the year awards, while Phil Wylie and Emma Pooley were recognised as duathletes of the year.

Steve Trew and Marc Jenkins received Gold Pin awards, recognising their contribution to triathlon. The final presentation of the evening was the Olympic Athlete of the Year award, which went to Non Stanford. 

See below for a full list of winners. To find out more about British Triathlon and to see more images of all the winners, visit the website here.
