Thunder Bay's Jonathan Balabuck has been racing, and winning, in Minnesota for almost a decade. He'll be one of the favorites at the Brewhouse Triathlon in Duluth this Sunday.

Great border state athletes like Marnie Walth (ND), Melanie Carvell (ND), Rob Gilles (ND) and Kim Fordham-Lien (SD), who have raced often on Minnesota soil, have been nominated for (and on occasion, have won) Minnesota Multisport Awards and spots on Team MN. Perhaps this will be the year that an athlete from The Great White North--Jon Balabuck-- receives MMA consideration?
