In what Lexington's Susan Bradley-Cox called "a celebration of a spirit and a sport that has brought us all together," the third class of the USA Triathlon Hall of Fame was formally inducted Saturday at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo.
Bradley-Cox, arguably the world's most decorated age group triathlete, highly regarded race director Dave McGillivray and six-time Ironman champion Dave Scott were the honorees at the Colorado Springs resort.
"It's a very overwhelming experience for me," Bradley-Cox said. "I'm flattered and honored to be here with such distinguished people in our sport."
Bradley-Cox owns 11 national titles and 11 International Triathlon Union world championships. She is the only athlete to be a member of Team USA at every ITU age group Olympic-distance world championship, beginning in 1989. She was named USA Triathlon Grand Masters Athlete of the Year in 1997 and 1998, and was selected as 1997 Masters Triathlete of the Year by Triathlete magazine.
