After winning her age group at the Ironman Canada triathlon in Penticton and the Ironman Championships in Hawaii last year, Triathlon Canada awarded local endurance athlete Mae Palm the 2001 Athlete of the Year honours.

Palm received the award in the masters division of the long distance triathlon category.
