Tony is the 2019 Glasser/Ginger award recipient

“When I attended my first LVTC event, a summer swim, he greeted me and made me feel so welcome. He continued to welcome me all summer, making me feel appreciated and as if I belonged—encouraging me despite being a beginner. He was generous with advice and celebrated with me as I progressed in the sport.”

“I watched as he served our club, the sport, and our community… providing kayak support for open water training and sweeping rocks on race day. Many don’t know that he also cares for the RMT throughout the week so cyclists can safely enjoy their rides. His positivity and servant’s heart is such a great gift to the Las Vegas triathlon community and his kindness was such a blessing for me.”

“He has been instrumental in encouraging new and experienced triathletes. He is always there to encourage others to “tri”. Heck I am not sure I would be where I am today if it was not for him walking with me 13 years ago at Pumpkinman in 2007, my first real triathlon. I was in tears and totally defeated and he encouraged me to keep going. He is that kind of guy!”

“He gives unconditionally … no expectation for any acknowledgement nor reward.”

“He’s that volunteer that always knows what we need.  From sweeping the transition area to kayak support.  Helping folks set up transition and identifying the course. He’s always there for whatever we need and you never have to ask him.  He just knows it.”

“I love how he’s always at the club races sweeping the rocks away to protect our feet. I also love his “Mountain Lion” sign at the bike mount and dismount line.”

Congratulations Tony!
