The Dean Nankevil Award is a time-honored tradition within our club. Dean was a founding member who gave so much to make sure triathlon was present and supported in Alice Springs. This year's award has been given to Tim Bourke, aka 'King of the Kids'. Tim has raced well this season, often showing up with little training and smashing a race. He has given so much time to the club in volunteer hours to support our Juniors races as well as the adult races. He's always willing to lend a hand and is very supportive of his fellow triathletes.

The Loie Sharp Award is also a time-honored tradition that recognizes the female who most closely embodies Loie's constant encouragement of her fellow athlete and unwavering support of the club. This year's award has been given to Kate Anderson. Kate is amazingly kind to all. She makes sure no athlete is left behind in our training sessions, often sacrificing her goals to run with someone who is struggling. She has given up every Sunday this season to marshall each race, race directed once, and has spent countless hours helping to set-up, organize the races and lend a hand any way she can. She cheers on all athletes at each event and has even run with many of them to help them push through the pain and make it across the finish line. Kate is simply amazing and we are proud to have her in our club.

The Most Inspirational Award goes to Lizzie Edwards. Lizzie always gives 100% effort when racing and training. She set a goal to run 5km nonstop this season. It was amazing to watch her progress and was absolutely thrilling to see her achieve her goal! Lizzie is also a massive supporter for her fellow athletes. If she wasn't racing, she was volunteering. Lizzie is the loudest cheering section. It was wonderful to hear her voice as we struggled to complete a race! We are so impressed and cannot wait to see Lizzie next season. Thanks for everything!

The Outstanding Volunteer Award goes to Hayley Connelly. Hayley was a frequent volunteer at the races. She supported all of us with so much encouragement throughout the season. Hayley also worked extremely hard to inspire the next generation of triathletes by helping with the Juniors races and the weekly kids training sessions. We are so thankful for Hayley's tireless efforts! Our club could not run without people like Hayley.

The Outstanding Junior Award goes to Isaac Blinco. Isaac raced in every Juniors event (until he broke his arm)….pushing so hard through to the finish. He was extremely dedicated and regularly came out to swim training sessions in order to improve his technique and speed. It worked! He qualified to swim in NT Championships and performed beautifully during those events. He also committed to a cycle training program to improve his bike skills. Isaac was recently accepted into NTIS for triathlon and will be traveling to a triathlon camp in the near future. Watch out for him next season! He seems to have boundless energy and is very focused on improving in triathlon.

Special mention and a huge debt of gratitude go out to Sean Loader and Jason Dawson. Sean has also spent so much of his personal time training the kids. He's volunteered at many races and even sponsored one of our events! Jason is an amazing force behind the scenes. He is officially our public officer and is always available for council and guidance. He keeps us legal and sane.
