Triathlon legends Mark Allen, Scott Molina and Scott Tinley, who combined to win nine Ironman World Championship titles over the course of their decorated careers, highlight the fourth class of the USA Triathlon Hall of Fame.
Also selected in this year’s class were top age-grouper Ethel Autorino and contributors Bob Babbitt and Sally Edwards.
Allen, Molina and Tinley, along with previous USA Triathlon Hall of Fame inductee Dave Scott, are commonly referred to as triathlon’s "Big Four."
All six inductees will be honored at a banquet on 10 May at the Bahia Resort Hotel in San Diego to open the ITU World Triathlon San Diego race weekend. Ticket information will be available on usatriathlon.org in the near future. This exclusive event, which has sold out in each of the past three years, will be limited to 250 attendees.
"Our six inductees for 2012 represent all that is good about the multisport lifestyle, and USA Triathlon is thrilled to honor their contributions to our sport," said Chuck Graziano, chair of the USA Triathlon Hall of Fame Committee. "We look forward to hosting the event in San Diego and believe this will be a fitting kick off to the ITU World Triathlon San Diego weekend."
The USA Triathlon Hall of Fame was founded in 2008, and this year’s class will bring the total number of inductees to 19. Visit usatriathlon.org for more information on the USA Triathlon Hall of Fame.
