Women’s Committee open nominations for the Award of Excellence

In a time like this, the World Triathlon Women’s Committee feels it is more important than ever to continue its tradition of honouring women in the sport of triathlon. Therefore we are pleased to announce that the application process for the 2021 Award of Excellence is open. This year’s Award of Excellence (AOE) presentation is planned to take place at the World Triathlon Congress in Edmonton, Canada. National Federations are encouraged to nominate an individual or an organisation that has made a significant and meaningful contribution to women’s involvement at all levels of the sport of triathlon and para triathlon. Nominations will be evaluated by the AOE selection committee including an external peer review panel that will carefully weigh each nominees’ relevant awards and honours, accomplishments in advancing women in triathlon, and the nominator’s endorsement of the individual or organisation.

We encourage all to review the nomination form and the award criteria which will help ensure your nominee’s achievements and contributions are presented effectively.  Completed nomination forms should be submitted to womensaward@triathlon.org by Monday, 31 May 2021 (midnight CEST).

The World Triathlon Women’s Committee has bestowed its Award of Excellence annually since 2012. During that time, the award recipients have each displayed great inspiration and served as role models to women and youth engaged in triathlon. The award recipients each also epitomise the importance of how one individual or an organisation can affect a positive influence on the triathlon community.

Thank you for your commitment to nominating a deserving individual or organization from your Federation that has made a tremendous impact in promoting women in our sport.

Tomoko Wada
Chair, World Triathlon Women’s Committee
