Welcome to round two of the Making the Team: 2008 contest! Well it's certainly been an exciting few days, hasn't it? The endurance community, their friends, family, and plethora of alter egos have spoken, and while we appreciate everyone's creativity, unfortunately, we were only able to count each person's vote once.
All votes were individually assessed and routed to eliminate duplicates, and the candidates with the most combined votes after these measures were applied will now advance. We greatly appreciate everyone's participation, and applaud the efforts of each contestant and their team of supporters. Remember, in the event a candidate does not advance to the next round of voting, he or she is welcomed and encouraged to participate in the subsequent Making the Team: 2008 contest(s).
And now, we present your round two crew. Their voting tallies have been reset to zero. As in the first round, please be sure to base your voting on how thoroughly each individual addresses the following questions:
1. How will you benefit the team if you're chosen? What are your personal attributes?
2. How have you, and how do you plan to give back to the endurance sport community? Nothing is too insignificant, list it all.
3. Why tri? Please be as creative as possible in explaining why you are passionate about triathlon and endurance sport?
Round two voting will continue until 11:59 PM PST Saturday, February 23, 2008. In addition to all first-time voters, if you voted in round one, you may vote again at this time. Please be advised only one vote per person will be counted. Do not vote multiple times, or for multiple candidates. The four videos of the featured seven that have received the most unique votes will advance to the next round.
To ensure tally accuracy, please write the name of your candidate and "Round Two" in the subject line of your email to email@example.com. All videos are featured in alphabetical order.
Good luck, everyone!
