Each year, the Triathlon England Awards recognise and celebrate the hard work of volunteers who help to make the sport what it is, with this being as evident in 2020 as ever before.
Categories such as event and coach of the year are also included, reflecting the activities that were able to take place in between the 2019 awards nominations closing (5 September 2019) and the national lockdown in March this year.
The work of volunteers is invaluable to allowing so many people to access and enjoy swim, bike, run with 2020 highlighting that more than ever. Recognising and rewarding volunteers through the Triathlon England Awards is one of the ways in which we can thank them for all the hard work they put in throughout the year to help the sport develop and grow.
This year Sky Sports News presenter, Kate Mason, hosted the awards ceremony. Having swum competitively as a junior athlete, she took part in a few youth triathlons and her admiration for those involved in the sport is profound.
This year’s awards have been changed from previous years to reflect the circumstances under which volunteers have helped the sport to continue despite disruption caused by Covid-19. Among the seven categories are new ones which celebrate virtual activity and key workers within the sport.
The Old Dovorian Club are pleased to announce that Rob Waite came third in the category of “Coach of the year“ at the on line award ceremony yesterday, Saturday 14th November 2020.
Many congratulations on your amazing achievement and dedication
