There was double joy for the Rogers family.

Female performance of the year went to Anita Rogers who put in a gutsy aand courageous effort in the choppy waters of Dun Laoighaire Harbour, horizontal rain in Wicklow and rounded it off with a steady half marathon along the seafront for the Half Iron man last summer.

The most improved male athlete went to Gearoid Rogers who has over the past three or four years improved gone from a nervous novice swimmer to an Ironman with great application to all components of triathlon.
