J. Bowman, M. Gray, Win Overall 2012 Club Grand Prix Championship
January 28, 2013 (Tallahassee) -- Jeff Bowman and Marci Gray were awarded top honors at the Gulf Winds Triathletes 2012 awards ceremony and holiday party on December 17, 2012, at Momo's Pizza in Tallahassee. Bowman also won top male Masters (over 40 years old), and Robin Gibson won top female Masters.
All told, 63 of the 340 members of Gulf Winds Triathletes received Grand Prix honors. Five men (including Bowman) and five women (including Gray) won Overall Awards. Those annual awards are given to the five athletes of each gender who scored the most points at Grand Prix events in 2012. In short, they were the five fastest men and five fastest women, regardless of age group, over the season of Grand Prix events.
Members who competed in three or more Grand Prix events were eligible for awards.
The other four men's Overall winners were, in order, Alan Cox, Charlie Johnson, Colin Abbey, and Steve Steverson. The other four women's Overall winners, also in order, were Annette Wilson, Jennifer Kilinski, Sandy Holt, and Melanie Leitman.
The men's 50-54 age group continued to produce stallions. Just like in 2011, three of the five overall winners, Bowman, Cox, and Steverson, came from the 50-54 age group.
On the women's side, an equal grouping of talented athletes--Wilson, Holt, and Leitman--came from the 25-29 age group.

Please remember that the standings will list a race for you only if you earned Grand Prix points for that race.
Congratulations to all who participated in an exciting Grand Prix series!
