Veteran Athlete of the Year (Male): Jeff Halper. Jeff began participating in triathlons in 2009, but this co-lead of the MoCo Mafia quickly moved from participant to perennial fixture on the Masters Clydesdale (MC) podium. Never one to brag about his own accomplishments, in recent years, Jeff rarely participated in a race without bringing home a MC award. This year was no exception; Jeff was 1st MC at Diamond in the Rough OLY; 2nd at Bethany Beach; and 1st at Pleasants Landing OLY. Way to go, Jeff!
