10 Athletes of the Year (2020-21)

Even with race schedules cut short, travel curtailed and being isolated from training partners, these athletes pushed through the year of Covid-19 and showed how you can stay motivated, stay fit and stay on top of the game.

In 2020 and early 2021 Vermont-based athletes broke national records for running the indoor mile, won World Cups in skiing, swam the English Channel and challenged all of us to create our own personal goals and be stronger, healthier, kinder and better people.
