USAT Rankings are in..

2006 Rankings Now Final

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. ( Feb. 9 2007 ) USA Triathlon is pleased to announce the 2006 age group rankings have been finalized.
In 2006, USA Triathlon introduced the new “pacesetter” system, designed to create as accurate and fair a program as possible in determining how athletes rank across the country. For a full description of the new program, please visit Rankings Criteria.
“We have received an overwhelmingly positive response to the pacesetter system, and will continue to improve all aspects of the program over the next few years”, said Membership Services Director Jennifer O’Day. “As the most popular benefit USA Triathlon offers, we saw an opportunity to revamp an outdated system, and are incredibly pleased with the results.”
As of February 8, all rankings for results received by USA Triathlon have been calculated. All current members as of 12/31/06, who competed in a minimum of two triathlons, two off-road triathlons, or two duathlons/aquathlons, can view their final rankings here: 2006 Year End Rankings. The final rankings will also be published in the spring issue of USA Triathlon Life.

I was ranked 618 out of 2022 women in my age group : ) This year is going to be great!
