10. Andy Potts
The 2011 season was a super-busy one for Potts, 35, who racked up six wins in just three months between April and July. The American displayed remarkable versatility with a trio of 70.3 victories (Oceanside, Florida and Vineman) as well as wins at Escape from Alcatraz and the Philly Triathlon. Arguably the fastest swimmer in the sport, Potts emerged from the water two minutes ahead of the field at the Ironman World Champs in October, ultimately finishing 17th. One week prior to that Kona race, Potts earned the Life Time Fitness Race To The Toyota Cup Series title by finishing fourth at the U.S. Open Triathlon.
