Triathlon stories looked different this year. 

We wrote about racial inequality. 

We wrote about front line workers. 

We wrote about the impacts of the pandemic on the multisport community. 

We wrote about our community's Power Within. 

We wrote about gardening, a new quarantine hobby. 

USA Triathlon Magazine may have looked different in 2020, with two issues published only in a digital format. But the storytelling was just as impactful.
