Individual honours up for grabs in 2020 – Sydney Triathlon Premier League
There is not just a Championship Title and relegation safety to race for in the Sydney Triathlon Premier League during the first few months of 2020, there are also a host of individual honours up for grabs that promise to make the remaining events on the STPL calendar action packed.
The Dave McEwan Medal is the MVP (Most Valuable Performer) title for the division and is presented to the athlete who has accumulated the most Performance Points over the course of the season.
George Miller of the Sydney Tri Giants is the clubhouse leader as we enter 2020 with 6 points and is going to take some stopping. The young Englishman is a very talented athlete and should feature heavily over the back end of the season.
His closest competition at the moment comes from fellow Giant and teammate, Fumika Matsumoto who looks set to push Miller all the way to Club Champs in late May. Fumika is just one point behind on 5 points.
Bronte Clifford from the Hills Red Army rounds out the podium on 4.5 points.
There are five athletes who find themselves just off the podium by just half a point, all with 4 points.
They are Balance Bolt superstar Jocie Evison, Brian Brady of the Hills Red Army, Robert Picken of Macarthur, Jennifer McDonald of the Cronulla Sharks and a second Balance Bolt athlete, Travis Shields.
Lauren Wilson of the Balmoral Purple Thunder and Chris Wooldridge of the Cronulla Sharks round out the top 10.
The STPL will also see seven Club MVP’s crowned. These titles will be awarded to the athlete who has accumulated the most Performance Points for their Club during ICS02.
Bronte Clifford leads the way for the Hills Red Army but Brian Brady is just half a point behind.
