I second James Chu as club member of the year for his amazing leadership with Masters Swimming. Thanks James for coaching me through my first Bay Bridge swim. Hope you will join me in the water next year!
My totally biased nomination for most improved male is my husband Brian Waud for knocking two hours off his 70.3 time from ~7:30 at Musselman 2017 to ~5:30 in Atlantic City 2018. I’m so impressed with his dedication and the hard work he’s put into training.
For spirit of DC TRI I would also second Bipin Badhe – he is always out there encouraging community development and bringing folks together for weekend rides.
