2006 DUATHLETE OF THE YEAR
From USA Triathlon Life (Summer 2007)
GRAND MASTERS MALE
San Antonio, Texas
The state of Texas was stacked with great duathletes in the 2006 season. Both Grand Masters winners haled from this great state. Czelusta showed that turning 60 didnít mean slowing down--it meant a banner year with an abundance of hardware. At the Blue Norther Duathlon he finished 1st in his age group and 13th overall, at the USAT National Duathlon Championship he finished 1st in his age group and 83rd overall (top 25 percent of the field), and second in his age group at the ITU Short Course Duathlon World Championship in Cornerbrook, Canada. He capped off a great season with a number one USAT grand masterís ranking.
