The Rob George Award

THE 2018 WINNERS OF THE ROB GEORGE AWARD

JOHN MACGREGOR (NSW)

John Macgregor-Skinner has made a big impact in improving a crucial area in triathlon - safety. An active technical official, he has developed an Operational Manual for all club races which included a Club Race risk management plan. This initiative has improved governance and safety at club races in recent years. He also has the responsibility for compiling and submitting the Club’s weekly sanctioning documentation, where improvements are made following consultation with the Club’s Executive. 

TONY RUDDICK (VIC)

Tony Ruddick has been a busy official in recent times. Demonstrating a high personal commitment to the technical program at a local level, he has officiated at 21 events over the past two years. Three of these were on the senior technical team during the 2018/2019 season. This is Tony’s first year as a level two official and he has worked hard to develop his skills.
