2020 World Paratriathlon Series opens in Australia

Čt, 27/02/2020 - 02:44
Devonport, Australia, will raise the curtain on the 2020 World Paratriathlon Series (WPS), after successfully delivering the ITU Paratriathlon World Cup over the past three years. On Saturday 29th February fields of paratriathletes, at the 2020 Devonport ITU World Paratriathlon Series, will continue their campaigns for selection heading into a Paralympic year and aim for WPS success. The coastal course, in the north of Tasmania, soaks up a 750m swim beside the Mersey Bluff Lighthouse before a six-lap bike and two-lap run. All paratriathletes will be eager to get their Paralympic season off to a strong start with the action from in and around streaming live on TriathlonLIVE.tv. Stacked start lists, across all paratriathlon events, will determine that racing will be competitive and packed with drama! Carlos Rafael Viana from Brazil and Paralympian Alisa Kolpakchy from Ukraine, both earned gold medals in the 2019 Funchal ITU Paratriathlon World Cup, will lead in as favourites in the PTS5 category, in their respective races. Australia’s David Bryant and Russia’s Alexandr Ialchik will also be among the favourites in the men’s race. In the visually impaired races, Australia’s Paralympic champion Katie Kelly (PTVI women), 2016 Rio Paralympic Games gold medallist and Jonathan Goerlach (PTVI men), who claimed the bronze medal in the 2019 Tokyo ITU Paratriathlon World Cup, are marked as home crowd favourites and will be in hot pursuit for podium success. Both Kelly and Goerlach claimed the gold medals in the recent Newcastle OTU Paratriathlon Oceania Championships, in January this year, in this category. The Russian duo of Victor Chebotarev and Anna Plotnikova are in pole position in the PTS3 category, while Japan’s Hideki Uda, who earned the bronze medal in the 2019 Banyoles ITU Paratriathlon World Cup and fourth place in the 2019 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final Lausanne and Luxembourg’s Joe Kurt remain favourites in the competitive PTS4 men’s classification. Sally Pilbeam (AUS) will be aiming to apply the pressure in the women’s race. USA’s Melissa Stockwell, who claimed three Paratriathlon World Cup golds in 2019 and Frenchman Jules Ribstein, who had brilliant run in 2019 that began with victory in WPS Milan and ended with the World and European titles, will be the ones to beat in the PTS2 women’s and men’s races. The PTWC races will be headlined with the talent of 2019 ITU World Paratriathlon Champion Lauren Parker from...

ITU moves 2020 Chengdu Mixed Relay Olympic Qualification Event to Valencia (Spain)

St, 26/02/2020 - 14:50
The International Triathlon Union, in consultation with the Chinese Triathlon Federation (CTSA), has taken the decision to move the 2020 Chengdu ITU Mixed Relay Olympic Qualification Event to the city of Valencia (Spain) due to ongoing uncertainty surrounding the 2019-nCoV Coronavirus outbreak in China. The Chengdu Mixed Relay Olympic Qualification event was due to be held on the 9 May, with a World Cup taking place at the same venue the following day. Both events were included in the Olympic Qualification period. The decision has been taken to move the Mixed Relay event to Valencia on the 1 May, which will be the last opportunity for three National Olympic Committees to secure two women and two men quota for the Tokyo Olympic Games. The 2020 Chengdu World Cup will be postponed until later in the season and unfortunately, due to the lack of available time in this year’s busy schedule with World Cup racing almost every weekend from March through to May, and despite every effort to find a workable solution, it will not be replaced with another World Cup within the Olympic Qualification period. ITU and the Chinese Federation will announce new dates for the rescheduled event in the coming weeks. ITU will be closely monitoring the start lists in the upcoming World Cup events in the Olympic Qualification period and may increase the start field over 65 in case it is seen necessary and technically possible. This consideration will not apply for any of the WTS events. The Asian Cup events in Tainan (TPE), Beihai (CHN) and Dexing (CHN) scheduled to be hosted in March and April have been postponed as well, with the full support of the Asian Triathlon Confederation. ITU will continue to cooperate with the National Federations and the local organising committees to continue developing triathlon in Asia and we will return to the region with further events in the near future. Valencia will host the Mixed Relay Qualification event along with its scheduled World Cup on the weekend of 1-3 May. ITU wants to express its gratitude to the Spanish Triathlon Federation, as well as the local organisers, sponsors and staff, for being able to accommodate such an important event at such short notice. ITU is monitoring the situation in other parts of the world and is working in close cooperation with the respective National Federations and local organising committees. Any possible changes related to other events will be communicated as soon as possible.

ITU Development announces recipients of 2020 Athlete Scholarship programme

Po, 24/02/2020 - 15:37
After receiving a greater number of applications than ever before, ITU Development can confirm the twelve athletes who will be included on its scholarship programme for 2020. The programme is designed to help Olympic prospects from developing National Federations (NF Group 1, 2, 3) who have already shown competence at a Continental and World level but will require additional support to help them make the step up to top-level training and racing. This will be the first time that three scholarship holders from Africa – Badr Siwane (MAR), Basmla Elsalamoney (EGY) and Mehdi Essadiq (MAR) - will compete for the New Flag Olympic spot, while two Syrian athletes – Mohamad Alsabbagh and Mohamad Maso - have been nominated for the IOC Tripartite Invitation Places.  “We were delighted to have received a total of 37 applications (20 men, 17 women) from all five continents (ASTC: 3, ATU: 6, ETU:10, OTU:1, PATCO: 17), and it was always going to be a difficult task to choose between so many worthy candidates,” said ITU Development Senior Manager Zita Csovelyak, “but the Selection Panel had to make its decision after a thorough review of the submissions, with Tokyo 2020 qualification prospects their main focus.” The athletes selected for the scholarships are:  

 Antoanela MANAC (ROU)
 Badr SIWANE (MAR)
 Basmla ELSALAMONEY (EGY)
 Diego MOYA (CHI)

Multiple Australian Champion targets Mooloolaba Triathlon

Čt, 20/02/2020 - 05:30
At 78, Loch Blatchford, from Tweed Heads, Queensland, Australia, is an unconventional triathlon legend and an inspiration to everyone getting along in years that is struggling for motivation to keep the joints moving. A multiple Australian Champion over the standard distance and a Long Course champion as well, Loch has been putting in the hard yards in preparation for this latest assault on the Mooloolaba Triathlon, ultimately representing Australia in Townsville at the 2021 ITU World Triathlon Multisport Championships and fulfilling his desire to one day be the oldest triathlete in the world. “I’ve won a few Australian age group titles at Mooloolaba and the Australian Long Course at Goondiwindi and while others are faster and fitter, they don’t always turn up,’ he laughed. “I try to fit marathons and ocean swims into my triathlon program. I have done six marathons and won my age group in the Pan Pacs 5km Open Water Swim a couple of years ago.” “I train myself and by myself. I enjoy the freedom and have found specialist swim and run clubs unsuitable. I assume tri clubs are different, but oldies needs are also different, so I train when and how it suits me. I never ride on the road and only race on closed courses. Currently I do a three-hour hilly, walk/run on Sunday, 45 minutes of weights on Monday and I have the day off Tuesday. I do a three-hour stationary bike ride Wednesday, which includes two bike classes, take the day off Thursday, three kilometre morning swim Friday and 45 minutes of weights in the afternoon. Then Saturday is off.” “My times are getting slower and recovery takes longer and I no longer push through training sessions. If I feel mentally or physically too tired to continue, I stop. I train less. I do weight training every week and stretch the whole body every morning. I train for one week and halve the volume the following week. I could train hard for two weeks but I would then need an extended recovery so it is better to have a one hard/one easy approach.” “Although Mooloolaba is nearly upon me, I am currently training for the 2021 World Long Course, which is three times the length of Mooloolaba. Consequently, my times may suffer but that is the sacrifice I need to make to be ready for the Worlds in 2021.” “I can’t afford to race overseas and my GIANT bike was built late last century. So what? Suck it up sunshine, you play the hand you are dealt. My bike shop says to forget the new bike keep working...

USA Triathlon to Fund First Paratriathlon Prize Purse in ITU History

Čt, 13/02/2020 - 21:36
USA Triathlon, with the support of the International Triathlon Union and the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee, announced a professional prize purse for podium finishers at the Sarasota-Bradenton ITU Paratriathlon World Cup, set for March 22 in Florida. Made possible by USA Triathlon sponsors and private donors, the prize purse is the first for an elite paratriathlon race in ITU history. The total of $60,000 is equal to that of the elite ITU Triathlon World Cup taking place on the same day. USA Triathlon has played a leading role in professionalizing the sport of paratriathlon in recent years. The National Governing Body, along with Toyota and the Challenged Athletes Foundation, combined to offer a historic prize purse of $36,750 at the 2019 Toyota USA Paratriathlon National Championships in Long Beach, California. “Many elite paratriathletes, both in the U.S. and internationally, sacrifice financial stability to chase world class performances and compete around the globe as professionals,” said Rocky Harris, USA Triathlon CEO. “USA Triathlon, with the support of the ITU and the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee, is committed to recognizing their achievements and we are thrilled to take this important step to continue to advance paratriathlon in the United States and around the world.” “I am delighted to learn that USA Triathlon has managed to make the prize money for paratriathletes a reality at the Sarasota-Bradenton ITU Paratriathlon World Cup as something exceptional,” said Marisol Casado, ITU President and International Olympic Committee member. “It is a great achievement by USA Triathlon. As everyone is aware, paratriathletes are raising the bar every day and it is very special that at this event, they will have a prize money equal to the non-para categories.” The Sarasota-Bradenton ITU Triathlon and ITU Paratriathlon World Cups will take place at Sarasota’s Nathan Benderson Park on Sunday, March 22. The races will feature competitive international fields, as athletes from the U.S. and around the world will be on the hunt to improve their Olympic and Paralympic qualification rankings ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Games. “The Olympic and Paralympic year represents a unique opportunity to showcase the world’s best Paralympic athletes on the world stage, before a mainstream audience,” said Rick Adams, Chief of Sport Performance and NGB Services at the USOPC. “However, elite Paralympic hopefuls train...

World Paratriathlon: 2020 season preview

Čt, 13/02/2020 - 16:53
The wait is nearly over, the hard work is just beginning. In the Paralympic year, the 2020 ITU Paratriathlon World Championships again becomes a standalone event outside of the annual ITU Grand Final, with Milan hosting two days of intense racing at the start of May after staging a superb WPS last year. Before then, the honour of kick-starting this year’s three-race World Paratriathlon Series goes to WPS Devonport at the end of February, and there will be six World Cups in 2020, Alanya bringing down the curtain at the start of October. With the paratriathlon events of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games taking place across two days at the end of August, 2020 looks set to be another unmissable season, so don’t forget to follow all the action on TriathlonLIVE.tv Here’s what is coming up:— 29 February WPS Devonport After three years hosting its successful Paratriathlon World Cups, 2020 sees Devonport step up to deliver the opening World Paratriathlon Series racing of the season in the north of Tasmania. The coastal course takes in a 750m swim beside the Mersey Bluff Lighthouse before a six-lap bike and two-lap run, and all the athletes will be eager to get their Paralympic season off to a strong start, much as Australia’s Lauren Parker H1 and David Bryant did here 12 months ago .  5 March Abu Dhabi Paratriathlon World Cup The first Paratriathlon World Cup to hit Abu Dhabi will kick off a big week of triathlon in the United Arab Emirates capital, with the Yas Marina and Formula One track circuit ready to provide a stunning challenge. It’s an undulating course that, other than the tight opening section from T1 onto the track, will provide plenty of fast and full-blown racing on the bikes. — 22 March Sarasota-Bradenton Paratriathlon World Cup The action moves on to Florida for the second World Cup of the year, and the beautiful lakeside setting of Nathan Benderson Park, east of Sarasota. The swim will be followed by three laps around the lake on bikes before the up-and-back run along its western edge, where two years ago home favourite Kelly Elmlinger was among the winners and Nic Beveridge H1 flew to the men’s PTWC gold. — 19 April MS Amlin Paratriathlon World Cup Bermuda After two hugely entertaining WTS races here, Bermuda gets ready to host its first ever paratriathlon World Cup in mid-April. The course will stretch along the front of Hamilton Harbour, the fast bike segment running to the east and the run to the west of transition....

Egyptian triathletes put Africa on the Winter Triathlon map

Čt, 13/02/2020 - 11:24
For Khaled El Shebokshy and Seifeldin Ismail last Sunday in Asiago was a day of firsts. It was the first time ever that an Egyptian athlete competed in the Winter Triathlon World Championships. It was also the first time that an African nation was represented in the newest discipline of triathlon, which involves running in the snow, biking in the snow and a last leg of cross country ski. And even for Seifeldin, it was his first time competing in real snow. That’s what happens when you come from a country where playing around sand dunes is easier than to find snow, because the last time it snowed in Cairo, where both of them live and train, was back in 2013, and it was considered an historical event, as the last snowfall before that was in the 19th century. Probably, as historical as Khaled and Seifeldin’s participation at the 2020 Winter Triathlon Age Group World Championships, held in Asiago, where they joined more than 300 athletes from 25 countries to compete on a circuit of 3.8km of a run in the snow, to be followed by a 6km bike ride also over the snow and finishing with 5km of cross-country skiing. It was not an easy task for any of them. Seifeldin, who has just turned 18 years old, trained for 2 weeks before competing in Asiago in the “Snowcity”: an artificial snow small slope located inside a shopping mall in Cairo. It was there where he tried the skis for the first time, after his mentor Khaled told him about this discipline. “I have competed in some triathlons, I finished in second place in the African Championships last June in Shandrani, but I have never tried a winter triathlon before. I am very excited and willing to experience it”, said 24 hours before the race. Both for Seifeldin and Khaled the briefing the day before of the race was very special. “We feel so welcomed here, they have mentioned in the briefing that we are the only athlete4s from Africa ever to compete in winter triathlon, and that’s very special for us”, said Khaled, who wanted to thank not only the Asiago organisers, but also the support received by the President of the African Confederation, Ahmed Nasser, and the President of the European Triathlon Union, Renato Bertrandi, both ITU Board members. “President Nasser is trying to increase the presence of African athletes in all events related to triathlon, and we can proudly say that we contributed to this”, explained Khaled. Khaled is getting used to be the first one ever doing multiple things. He was also the first...

Egyptian triathletes put Africa on the wintertri map

Čt, 13/02/2020 - 11:24
For Khaled El Shebokshy and Seifeldin Ismail last Sunday in Asiago was a day of firsts. It was the first time ever that an Egyptian athlete competed in the Winter Triathlon Worlld Championships. It was also the first time that an African nation was represented in the newest discipline of triathlon, which involves running in the snow, biking in the snow and a last leg of cross country ski. And even for Seifeldin, it was his first time competing in real snow. That’s what happens when you come from a country where playing around sand dunes is easier than to find snow, because the last time it snowed in Cairo, where both of them live and train, was back in 2013, and it was considered an historical event, as the last snowfall before that was in the 19th century. Probably, as historical as Khaled and Seifeldin’s participation at the 2020 Winter Triathlon Age Group World Championships, held in Asiago, where they joined more than 300 athletes from 25 countries to compete on a circuit of 3.8km of a run in the snow, to be followed by a 6km bike ride also over the snow and finishing with 5km of cross-country skiing. It was not an easy task for any of them. Seifeldin, who has just turned 18 years old, trained for 2 weeks before competing in Asiago in the “Snowcity”: an artificial snow small slope located inside a shopping mall in Cairo. It was there where he tried the skis for the first time, after his mentor Khaled told him about this discipline. “I have competed in some triathlons, I finished in second place in the African Championships last June in Shandrani, but I have never tried a winter triathlon before. I am very excited and willing to experience it”, said 24 hours before the race. Both for Seifeldin and Khaled the briefing the day before of the race was very special. “We feel so welcomed here, they have mentioned in the briefing that we are the only athlete4s from Africa ever to compete in winter triathlon, and that’s very special for us”, said Khaled, who wanted to thank not only the Asiago organisers, but also the support received by the President of the African Confederation, Ahmed Nasser, and the President of the European Triathlon Union, Renato Bertrandi, both ITU Board members. “President Nasser is trying to increase the presence of African athletes in all events related to triathlon, and we can proudly say that we contributed to this”, explained Khaled.

ITU Coaching Education Review 2019

St, 12/02/2020 - 12:24
2019 was another busy year in terms of coach education at ITU. A total of 16 courses were delivered across four continents (ASTC: 9, ATU: 2, ETU: 3, PATCO: 2), with ten on Level 1 and another six on Level 2. Olympic Solidarity granted funding for five seminars (four Level 1 and one Level 2), while ITU Development also provided two special online revalidation courses (a Level 1 and a Level 2) for those coaches certified before 2014, when the new ITU Coach Education Pathway and e-learning platform, the ITU Education Hub, were launched. For the second year, another key element of our e-learning portfolio saw those coaches who passed courses taken 2014 and onwards were able to revalidate their status using the Education HUB. In total, 292 coaches took this opportunity last year, a significant increase on 2018. ITU Development is continuously working on the improvement of this revalidation process and look forward to have all coaches onboard.   The total number of coaches certified in 2019 was 256 (ASTC: 98, ATU: 55, ETU: 51, OTU: 2, PATCO: 50). Level 1 certifications reached 152 and we have 104 new Level 2 coaches. For reference, at present the total number of ITU Certified Coaches is 948 (ASTC: 346, ATU: 139, ETU: 223, OTU: 10, PATCO: 230), meaning that nearly a third were certified last year. In line with the above pathway and incorporating the results of the last two years of certificate revalidation, ITU Development has published a first list of those ITU Level 1 Certified Coaches now eligible to proceed to Level 2. With the progress of our redesigned coach education since its introduction in September 2014, and the number of ITU Certified Coaches growing worldwide, we are now able to see the activity and dedication of individuals and provide better structure to coach development asa result. We hope that this eligible list - that will be published annually - will help NFs and Continental Confederations in their orientation of coach education.   The 2020 List of ITU Level 2 Eligible Triathlon Coaches can be accessed under the Level 2 section of Coach Education Documents in full and in continental breakdowns here: https://triathlon.org/development/coach/coach_education_documents.   The most important coach development project of 2019 was our collaboration with the Korea Triathlon Federation that built on the previous two years’ editions.

Why I do Mooloolaba Triathlon

Út, 11/02/2020 - 03:19
The Mooloolaba Triathlon (Queensland, Australia) has been a favourite destination for Elite and age-group multisport and triathlon communities for almost three decades, cementing itself a place as an iconic event in the Australian sporting calendar. Mooloolaba Triathlon hosts an ITU Triathlon World Cup on the Saturday and welcomes thousands of age-group triathletes from Australia and around the world on the Sunday of the schedule. Since its inception in 1993, the world’s greatest names, tens of thousands of age groupers, newbies and support teams of family and friends have joined in the annual celebration with the passionate local community, to make the ‘Moo Tri” a ‘must do’ event. Whether your thing is standard or sprint distance triathlon, watching the world’s best in the Mooloolaba ITU Triathlon World Cup, the Criterium, the new ASICS Mooloolaba Hot Laps or just taking it all in while sitting trackside in the best cafés and restaurants on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, from 13-15 March, Mooloolaba is once again the place to be. Mooloolaba Triathlon regulars James Frith, Steve Hughes, Nathan Scott and Sally Green reckon the only cure for FOMO is to be there in Mooloolaba. “I have been going to Mooloolaba on family holidays since I was a child, so in a way it is like a home triathlon for me. But I also love racing there because the run leg is best set-up for family, supporters and visitors watching on.” “Spectators can spread themselves out on either side of the hill all the way down to the turnaround and from their vantage point cheer on the athletes. That support is amazing and so valuable in keeping everyone moving forward when things warm up and get tough,” James said. Steve Hughes said he loves the Moo Triathlon event and really appreciates the work of everyone who make it possible for the competitors to enjoy. “It is a great swim, ride and run in an awesome place, with an amazing atmosphere and an ideal opportunity to catch up with friends. It makes no difference if you’re the fastest or the slowest, because it is just about doing the best you can do in a friendly, beautiful environment.” Nathan Scott said that apart from the fact that the Mooloolaba is the best triathlon in the world, Mooloolaba is also the best location for a triathlon. “The accommodation choices are excellent and fits all budgets, the race venue is fantastic with plenty of places to sit in the shade and watch, plenty of grass to sit down and...
