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!October 29, 2018 at 10:38 am #21780

If you have previously opted out of receiving emails from BallotBin, there is nothing we can do to un-“opt out” you as that would defeat the purpose of being able to opt out of something.

Spirit of DCTC – Bipin BadheOctober 31, 2018 at 9:28 pm #21795
DC Spirit Award – Bipin Badhe – 100%November 1, 2018 at 3:08 pm #21797
Posted on behalf of James Ford for Spirit of DCTri award:
I would like to nominate Bipin Badhe not sure which of the following he sits best under, but to sum him up, he has organized loads of rides for members (Sky Line, Sugar Loaf, White ferries, W&OD, Anacostia trail), He has also organized a few swim sessions too. As a new member I got to meet other members purely through his networking. He seemed to be watching or competing in every DC based event and is always so positive cheering people on. Lastly he always would drop me a text or a group WhatsApp encouraging people out to happy hours.November 3, 2018 at 8:54 pm #21809
