Estero resident Greg Pelican wins USA Triathlon’s Athlete of the Year award.

Running, cycling has been a big part of 61-year-old Greg Pelican’s life. Greg is a 2X Bronze medal winner of the Duathlon World Championships (run-bike-run) and a past National Champ. But upon turning 60 last year he had one of his best seasons ever!

Greg won the USAT National Championships in his age group for the sprint distance at Greenville South Carolina and won the bronze medal for the long course race in Miami. Greg also won 5 Florida Duathlons overall (every age group).

This led to being awarded the coveted USA Triathlon’s Athlete of the Year for the category of Grand Master Duathlon.

Pelican works as a Marketing Manager for Trek Bicycle Stores of Florida and trains daily with the Segafredo-Trek Triathlon team based in Estero.
