Age Group Committee Honors Top Athletes with Cruise


On Aug. 18, this year’s recognition of some of the best age groupers in the sport took on a new direction. On a beautiful summer evening, 122 people set sail on Lake Champlain aboard the Ethan Allen III for a memorable dinner cruise. Everyone onboard celebrated the accomplishments of the 2010 Athletes of the Year as each received their awards and recognition. A special treat for all was the guest speaker for the evening, Hall-of-Famer Karen Smyers, one of the most decorated athletes in America, who spoke about her experiences as a pro triathlete. Her words motivated and inspired all, and especially those about to compete in the Age Group National Championship in Burlington later that weekend. Particularly inspiring were her words that, even though she’s “aging up,” be forewarned that “50 is the new 30!”
