World Triathlon Championship Series Montreal moved to August

Pá, 05/03/2021 - 17:15

The local organizer committee of the Groupe Copley 2021 World Triathlon Series Montreal, along with Triathlon Canada, have decided to move the event from June to 13-15 August, 2021, in order to give a bit more time to ease the travel restrictions worldwide. Organisers of the 2021 World Triathlon Long Distance Championships in Zofingen have also announced that the event, planned for May, will be moved to 19 September.

Right after the Olympic Games in Tokyo this summer, the best triathletes of the world will travel to Canada for back to back Series racing. The week prior to the World Triathlon Championships Finals in Edmonton, best triathletes of the world will gather in Montreal for an event that will make its debut in the Series: the Eliminator format, with qualifiers, repechage and final. Unfortunately, and since the new dates are close to the Tokyo 2021 Paralympic Games, Montreal will not host a World Triathlon Para Series this year, as previously planned.

The organisers of the 2021 World Triathlon Powerman Long Distance Duathlon Championships Zofingen have requested to postpone the event from May to 19 September, 2021, due to the ongoing travel restrictions and the current COVID situation in Switzerland, that has quarantines in place for many countries. The request, approved by the World Triathlon Executive Board, has the full support from Swiss Triathlon and from the International Powerman Association.

The Duathlon Long Distance World Championships will then follow the 2021 World Triathlon Multisport Championships Almere-Amsterdam.

Triathlon action scheduled for first day of competition at Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games

Pá, 26/02/2021 - 13:04

Birmingham 2022 has released the latest version of the competition schedule for next year’s Commonwealth Games, which represents the biggest multi-sport event to be staged in the UK for a decade. The sporting action will start in style on Friday 29 July, with medal sessions on the first day confirmed for swimming, track cycling, gymnastics and triathlon. The para triathlon racing will be held, along with the Mixed Relay, on Sunday 31 July.

As in previous edition of the Commonwealth Games, the triathlon competition will include the Individual Elite Men and Women’s races over the sprint distance and the Mixed Relay, all taking place in the magnificent Sutton Park venue.

After Para triathlon made its Commonwealth debut in Gold Coast 2018 with great success, the 2022 edition will see visually impaired triathletes also competing for the medals in Birmingham, also over the sprint distance in Sutton Park.

Last year, the Commonwealth organisers confirmed that in 2022, more medals will be awarded to women than to men for the first time ever at a major multi-sport event. Sunday 7 August will be a true showcase for women’s team sport in particular, with the medal matches for women’s hockey, cricket T20 and netball all taking place on the same day.

The new schedule, which has been finalised following detailed conversations with Games Partners, International Federations and broadcasters, has been added to the Birmingham 2022 website, with a dedicated new section allowing eager sports fans to start planning their visit to England’s West Midlands for the Games.

The 2022 Commonwealth Games will showcase 19 different sports and a total of 283 medal events, the biggest ever programme in the history of the Games. Two full weekends of sport will include more para sport than ever before and highlight the strength of women’s sport.

The final day of competition will be held on Monday 8 August, when gold medals will be awarded in diving, table tennis, badminton, squash and hockey. The ceremonies team will be most in demand on Tuesday 2 August - when nine sports will award medals - and Sunday 7 August - when the medallists in eleven different sports will be decided.

Coaches from India, Kuwait, Serbia, South Africa and Zimbabwe graduate WSLA High Performance Course

Pá, 26/02/2021 - 12:28

Mid-February saw the virtual graduation ceremony of the Women for Sport Leadership Academy’s (WSLA) High Performance Coach course that began back in 2019.

The five female coaches invited by World Triathlon to join their peers from five other IFs selected by ASOIF to take part in what was the first third-party initiative to be funded by Olympic Solidarity were; Pamela Fulton (ZIM), Ljudmila Medan (SRB), Kate Murray (RSA), Pooja Chaurushi (IND) and Najla Al-Jeraiwi (KUW).

World Triathlon President Marisol Casado was also invited to speak at the end of the course that, despite having to be concluded online due to the Covid-19 pandemic, remained a defining experience for those taking part.

“The WSLA experience has been life-changing,” said Zimbabwe national team coach Pamela Fulton. “It has helped me believe in myself and focus on being a leader and now I look forward to using my expertise and experience to assist my federation and to help mentor up and coming athletes, coaches and women in sport.

“Each session on the course was so diverse and often unpredictable constantly stretching our comfort zone and having to think out of the box. The WSLA experience has been one of the most inspirational things I have been a part of and I am most grateful for this opportunity.”

The course began in November at the University of Hertfordshire, and was designed to help empower more women to stay in leadership positions in sport and to share their experiences within their domestic sport landscapes.

“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to take part… I have learnt the process of self-reflection, something that is imperative to self-awareness and self-improvement,” said Ljudmila Medan. “Through working with the WSLA team, they gave me support to expand communication and share networking with others. The fear of uncertainty completely disappeared in front of the euphoria about acquiring new knowledge.”

For India’s Pooja Chaurushi, the course has left her more focussed on ever on her goals for the LA 2028 Olympic Games;

“One of my major shortcoming was feeling unease in giving online training. With the help and encouragement from one of the mentors, I overcame that fear and started providing online coaching on training peaks, taking webinar sessions, Instagram sessions and in-person lectures for coaches’ and athlete development. Now, I am ready and looking forward to work with World Triathlon as a Mentor, Facilitator, Coach and a Leader. My current goal is to develop an Olympic athlete by 2028 to represent India.”

New series Going Beyond reveals the stories of the athletes chasing Paralympic dreams

Čt, 25/02/2021 - 15:30

With a hotly anticipated 2021 season promising the Para Triathlon World Championships Milan in May and the Tokyo Paralympics following in August, this week World Triathlon launched Going Beyond, a weekly series of interviews that sees GB’s 2018 PTS5 World Champion Lauren Steadman dive into the personalities behind some of the stars of the sport.

“I wanted to tell the world about the stories behind the people and personalities I’ve met through my nine years in the sport. This is the perfect time to get to know the athletes going for gold later in the year in Tokyo,” said Rio 2016 silver medallist Steadman.

The woman who took that first ever PTS5 Paralympic gold, USA’s Grace Norman, was the guest on the opening show. A below-the-knee amputee born without a left foot, Norman has never let anything hold her back from pursuing her love of sport and competition.

“Growing up I didn’t know there were other people like me so I competed in able-bodied sports,” said Norman. “At 13 I went to the Paralympic trials in Indianapolis just to watch and thought it was incredible. Having grown up watching the Olympics, the first time I heard about the Paralympics I knew I had to get into it.”

Grace opens up about the journey to making her dream of competing at the highest level into a reality and reveals what has driven her to keep pushing herself to succeed. “Set goals that are way outside what you think you can hit and just see what happens. Most of the time you will surprise yourself.”

New episodes will premiere on Facebook and TriathlonLIVE.tv every Wednesday at 8pm CET, with Germany’s Christiane Reppe, Britain’s Claire Cashmore and Dave Ellis, Canada’s Jess Tuomela, Australian Nic Beveridge and France’s Yannick Borseaux just some of the names set to give their insights from the front line of para triathlon racing at the highest level.

Maiden win for Mairhofer while Andreev claims another winter triathlon victory in Asiago

Pá, 19/02/2021 - 23:25

11 men and 8 women lined up this Friday at the Centro Fondo Campolongo for the opening race of the 2021 season: the Asiago World Triathlon Winter Cup. 7.2 km of running, 12 km of MTB cycling and 10 km of cross-country skiing on a completely snow-covered track that ended up with Russian King of winter triathlon Pavel Andreev claiming one more title, while Italian Sandra Mairhofer delighted the local crowds to cross the finish line in the first place.

Men’s review
The race started with Italian Franco Pesavento taking the lead in the first meters of the run course, followed at a short distance by Sebastian Neef (GER). A little further back another Italian, Daniel Antonioli, was trying to stay in touch, but right behind the leading trio, the Russians Andreev and Dimitriy Bregeda, appeared to be in full control of the race. And it was right when the men jumped on their bikes when the seven times world champion Andreev showed his cards.

Quickly he and his teammate Bregeda took the lead, with Neerf staying close in third, and leaving all to be decided in the last leg, over the skis.

Andreev started strong and managed to open a decent break over Bregeda and Neerf, and Pesavento really close in fourth place fighting for the podium. Showing his experience with the cross country skis, Andreev flied to another solo triumph, while Neerf surprised all with a powerful final sprint to claim the silver medal, and Pesavento managing to pass Bregeda in the last meters to claim a precious third place in the podium. Fourth place was Bregeda, while Antonioli closed the top five of the race.

“Today was a magnificent race for me, with constant changes between climbs and descents”, said Andreev. “After the bike, which I finished in the lead, things went well for me, but victory on such a track is never taken for granted, even if I did well on skis, managing my energies better. It is always a pleasure to compete here in Asiago, today I had an excellent test in view of the next international races of the season ”.

Bronze medallist Pesavento said: “I started strong and arrived well in the transition area, I held up well on the bike and I knew I had improved on the skis: today I really gave my best and managed to catch an important podium position, putting the Russian Bregeda behind me. After the first lap on skis I realized that today could be my day and I really believed I could win the medal: the first time the World Cup as an elite and the medal immediately arrived: now a recovery day before returning to race for the Italian championships “.

Women’s race
With the current world champion absent in Asiago, the women’s race was more open than ever. And it was a local, Italian Sandra Mairhofer, who decided to go hard from the beginning, only followed by Romanian Maria Luiza Rasina, who managed to jump on her bike in first place.  But as soon as the Italian was on her bike, she showed her skills in the snow to open up a significant break, enough to allow her a solo victory after the 10 km with the skis.

Second in the finish line was the Austrian Romana Slanivec, while Rasina managed to claim the bronze medal, with a podium that for the first time in many years, had no Russians. The current European champion and U23 world champion, Svetlana Sokolova (RUS) finished in fourth place and Carina Wasle (AUT) finished in 5th place.

“The race was really tough, it was a really nice surprise to be able to beat such strong opponents”, said the winner, Sandra Mairhofer. “This track adapts to my characteristics, I don’t deny it, but I realized that it could only be my day in MTB, when I saw that the advantage increased. On the skis I held up well, behind they went very fast, for what I had to push to the finish and stay very focused. Sunday is back on track, I have to defend the Italian title ”.

Ideal conditions welcome participants of the Asiago World Triathlon Winter Cup

St, 17/02/2021 - 15:18

The snow has been falling over the past weeks in the Centro Fondo Campolongo in Asiago, in the Italian Alps, leaving a magnificent scenario for the kick off of the World Triathlon Winter season. Over 20 elite athletes will compete in the first World Triathlon event in 2021 in Asiago, an event that most athletes will also use as a warm-up ahead of the European Championships in Cheile Grădiştei and the World Championships in Andorra, which are due to take place in March.

Although the international focus will be on the World Cup, taking place this Friday (19 February) there are two more days of competition on the timetable: Winter Cross Duathlon - Kids, Youth and Age-Group on Saturday and the Italian National Championships - Elite, U23 and Age-Group on Sunday. The World Triathlon Winter Cup Asiago will be streamed live on TriathlonLive on Sunday, at 9.00 CET.

Men’s Preview
If there’s someone that all eyes will be set up on is Pavel Andreev. The Russian holds eight Winter Triathlon World titles (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016, 2018, 2019 and 2020), seven European crowns (2011, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2020) and also seven national titles, as well as 26 other gold medals in his international career. However, he arrives to the first winter triathlon international race of this season after a surprise defeat, only a few weeks ago, in the Russian Championships.

Even though Evgenii Uliashev, the current Russian champion won’t be in Asiago for the World Triathlon Winter Cup, Andreev will have fierce competitors to fight for the 9th world title of his career, including teammate Dmitriy Bregeda, or Italian Daniel Antonioli, that will have the extra support of racing at home.

Antonioli, a great sky runner, has lots of experience on races above 2,000m and over steep inclines but emerging from the younger categories comes another Italian that will be worth watching: Alessandro Saravalle. Winner of the junior bronze at the 2012 Valsesia ETU Winter Triathlon European Championships, the 2018 and 2019 U23 European Champion, Saravalle will race here along with Franco Pesavento, who was the bronze medal winner at the 2016 Tiszaújváros ETU Triathlon Junior European Cup and at the 2015 Melilla ETU Triathlon Junior European Cup, the reigning World and European U23 Champion, from victories last year at Asiago and Cheile Grădiştei.

Women’s Preview
In the women’s race, the reigning women’s World Champion will be absent but we can still expect a battle at the front with European Champion, Svetlana Sokolova going head-to-head with former World and European Champion, Yuliya Surikova. Both Russians will be looking to exploit each and every tiny error.

Sandra Mairhofer was a runaway winner at the Gran Paradiso event and has dominated the sport in Italy since 2019 when she took her first national title. Racing the World Triathlon Winter Cup will give the reigning national champion all the edge she needs for the National Championships that are due to be held on Sunday but she will have to not only battle against the powerful Russians but also against long-time rival from Austria, Romana Slavinec. The Austrian’s power on the skis is a real threat and so Mairhofer will be wanting to make up as much time as possible over the two opening segments.

World Triathlon Championship Series Abu Dhabi moves date to November, closing the 2021 season

Po, 15/02/2021 - 10:26

The World Triathlon Championship Abu Dhabi 2021 has been moved to a new date, 5-6 November, for the first time in five years, the local organisers announced. The decision, backed unanimously by the World Triathlon Executive Board, will not only allow more time for the current worldwide travel restrictions to ease, but will be able to serve as a test event for the 2022 Abu Dhabi World Triathlon Championship Finals, also taking place at the end of the season.

The organisers of the 2021 World Triathlon Championship Series Abu Dhabi have planned for a Mixed Relay event to take place the same weekend.

The 2021 season will also see some new cities hosting World Triathlon events, with Osaka (Japan), Lisbon (Portugal) and Haeundae (South Korea) joining the top class world cup circuit.

The first look at the full 2021 World Triathlon calendar approved by the Executive Board reveals plenty of elite racing ahead in the coming months, so get your calendars ready and save the dates! The World Triathlon Championship Series and the World Triathlon World Cups are due to restart after 1 May.

World Triathlon Championship Series
The local organisers of the 2021 World Triathlon Championship Series Chengdu, together with CTSA and World Triathlon, have also decided to postpone the event to a later date in the season, considering the current travel restrictions in China. With a new date to be announced in the upcoming weeks, the city is ready to step up to host its first World Triathlon Championship Series event over the sprint distance in a revamped and magnificent venue purposely built to host triathlon events.

The World Triathlon Championship Series season is currently scheduled to begin in the classic Olympic distance challenge of Yokohama, Japan on 15 May.

The Championships move to the UK the following month, with Leeds hosting on 5 June, before a return to Montreal on 26-27 June, both cities having been regulars on the World Triathlon calendar since 2016.

Hamburg marks its 20th successive season as the home of top-level triathlon on 10 July, the milestone also providing the last taste of Championship Series action before the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games begin.

The World Triathlon Championship Finals Edmonton will then bring the spotlight back onto Canada’s beautiful Alberta province on 17-22 August for five days of events and first-class racing to crown the 2021 World Triathlon Champions.

The season moves on once more for the inaugural World Triathlon Sprint and Relay Championships taking place in Bermuda on 15-17 October, before the rearranged World Triathlon Championship Series Abu Dhabi wraps up 2021 on 5-6 November. The 2021 World Triathlon Championship Series Abu Dhabi will have a Mixed Relay event to take place the same weekend.

The dates for the World Triathlon Championships Series Chengdu will be confirmed as soon as possible.

World Triathlon World Cups
World Triathlon Cup Miyazaki, due to take place on 20 March, unfortunately had to be canceled by the Japanese Triathlon Union and the local organizing committee, due to the current travel restrictions in the region.

With this on mind, the World Triathlon Cup season is due to open in Osaka, Japan on 8-9 May, a city that welcomes the circuit for the first time.

Also a newcomer in the world cup circuit will be Lisbon, that after hosting successfully European evens, has stepped up and will organise the second stop of the world cups, the first one in Europe, on May 22-23.

The beautiful Arzachena (Italy) will return as host on 29-30 May. From there, racing moves on to Huatulco (Mexico, 12-13 June), Haeundae (South Korea, 4 July), Karlovy Vary (Czech Republic, 11-12 September), Weihai (China, 25-26 September), Miyazaki (Japan, 23-24 October) and Tongyeong (South Korea, 30-31 October).

The World Triathlon season as a whole will in fact get under way at the Winter Cup in Asiago on 19 February, followed by the Winter Championships in Andorra on 19-21 March.

The World Triathlon Para Championships Milan will crown the best in the world on 8 May in Italy, with the year’s Para Championship Series action taking place in Yokohama, Leeds and Montreal on the same weekends as the WTCS action. Two Para Cups will be held ahead of the Tokyo Paralympic Games, in Besancon, France (12-13 May), A Coruna, Spain (20 June), followed by Alanya, Turkey (1 October) and Miyazaki, Japan (23-24 October), before closing out in Alhandra, Portugal (30-31 October).

September will see the 2021 World Triathlon Multisport Championships Almere-Amsterdam run from 3-12 of the month, promising a feast of world championship action at all levels in Aquathlon, Aquabike, Cross Triathlon, Duathlon and Long Distance Triathlon.

As with those races that were able to take place in the second half of 2020, new World Triathlon protocols will be put in place and close collaboration with LOCs is already underway to ensure the safest possible conditions for the athletes, teams and all involved in holding the events. All races are subject to change given the continued uncertainty around the Covid-19 pandemic.

Level 1 Coaches Course unites 110 participants from 11 countries online

St, 10/02/2021 - 14:20

The first Americas-World Triathlon Coaches Level 1 Online Course concluded in January, with 58 participants from ten countries receiving the certification under challenging circumstances given the current Covid-19 climate. There were 82 men and 28 women initially enrolled back in November, with the final deadline for submissions of coursework closing on 17 January.

Among the attendees were the experienced Brazilian athlete Danilo Pimental and Costa Rica’s former National Champion Alia Cardinale and double-Olympian Leonardo Chacon, while Uruguay and Ecuador had the highest number of participants with 21 and 20 respectively.

The level one course is the entry-level for coaches, using a combination of theoretical and practical sessions in order to provide a thorough grounding in the principles and to be able to work effectively and safely with Junior and Age-Group athletes. Being the first to take place entirely online, the delivery and participation was brand new to all involved.

“It was an extremely demanding online course, with just six weeks to go through all the content and sessions. Some participants sadly struggled with the technology side, but in spite of the challenges I was impressed by the attendance and commitment. Some were having to dial in from parks or while at their jobs to get the best connection or work within the time differences”, said Lead Facilitator Vicent Beltran (ESP).

Joining Vicent in the delivery of the course were Claudia Beristain (MEX), Alejandro Cañas (ESP), Sergio Santos (POR) and Rodrigo Milazzo (BRA), with Edith Zariñana (MEX) and Maria Fernanda Gutierrez Perez (MEX) in assistance. Together they delivered nine online webinars and one-on-one interviews, while the group of participants, that included two para triathlon coaches, had to deliver four ten-minute training sessions by video for assessment.

“It is great to see athletes like Danilo and Leo planning their pathways into coaching by attending their first courses. For some of the participants it was just incredible to see their commitment given the lack of resources that are available in their regions. Seeing that desire to keep moving triathlon forward in such isolated places and environments you can’t help but be inspired by the ways the sport is continuing to develop across the world and the people it is touching.”

The next online course to take place will be the Mentor Course on 8 March. Find more information here.

Pá, 05/02/2021 - 13:18

In a meeting held on 4 February via teleconference, the World Triathlon Executive Board discussed the re-start of the Olympic and Paralympic qualification periods. After consultation with the Athletes, Coaches, Medical and Technical Committees, the Board approved a decision to wait a few more weeks to see how the current situation with the Covid pandemic evolves before having the final say on the Olympic and Paralympic rankings.

The Board has decided that the Olympic and Paralympic qualification will not re-start before 1 May and the final decision about this will be made on 18 March. The standings were frozen last March, with events that took place at the end of the 2020 season not counting for either the Olympic or the Paralympic rankings

The Executive Board reviewed the planned calendar for the 2021 season, with the World Triathlon Championship Series and the World Triathlon World Cups due to restart after 1 May as well. World Triathlon Cup Miyazaki, due to take place on 20 March, unfortunately had to be canceled by the Japanese Triathlon Union and the local organizing committee, due to the current travel restrictions in the region.

The World Triathlon Development team, encourages all accredited coaches to log in and start progressing the relevant tasks.

Following a three-year introductory phase of the CRoC scheme from 2021, World Triathlon are closely monitoring the timely completion of annual revalidation tasks. Only those coaches who complete all four annual tasks of their revalidation cycles will be eligible to maintain their certifications. A missing year, for a coach, will result in either a downgrade from Level 2 to Level 1 or the expiry of the Level 1 recognition. Lost statuses can be regained by taking a full certification course again on a self-funded basis.

Should you have any questions, please contact Istvan Jankov from the World Triathlon Development Team.

World Triathlon is committed to supporting the development of Triathlon worldwide and actively pursues this approach in several development initiatives. Many initiatives, such as these, form the foundations upon which National Federations, particularly developing and emerging federations, can build an athlete development pipeline – a key element of any long-term strategy. Without such a pipeline, there will not be a growth in participation to develop the wider sport and significantly less chance of developing high performing athletes.

Tokyo 2020 releases the first edition of the Games Playbook

St, 03/02/2021 - 16:15

The International Olympic Committee (IOC), International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee have published the first versions of the Playbook, a guide to the rules and measures that athletes, coaches, officials and all stakeholders will have to follow to ensure delivery of a safe and successful Olympic and Paralympic Games this year.

The series of Playbooks – with one for athletes, officials, media, broadcasters, IFs and NOCs - provides a framework of basic principles that each group must follow before they travel to Japan, when entering Japan, during their time at the Games and when they leave. They provide the direction and set the parameters that will enable teams and organisations to move ahead with their planning at this stage.

The first of this series of Playbooks is, for logistical reasons, aimed at International Federations and Technical Officials. Playbooks for the athletes, media and broadcasters will be published in the coming days. Accompanying the publication of each Playbook will be a series of briefings from the IOC, IPC and Tokyo 2020 with the stakeholders in question.

“This is a really important step for all of us on the road to Tokyo, and we are extremely grateful to the IOC, IPC and the Tokyo organisers for their efforts in putting in place these guidelines that will help all of us to deliver safe and successful Games, and for the athletes to perform at their highest levels”, said World Triathlon President and IOC member, Marisol Casado. “We all need to do our best to follow all the Playbooks, to make sure that the magic of the Games marks an historic moment for all when the Olympic and Paralympic Games take place. Of course these Games will be different, but this is a monumental team effort, and we need to be flexible and remember that the health and safety of everyone is the top priority for all”, she explained.

The Playbooks are the official, centralised source of information for the Olympic and Paralympic Games stakeholders, and will be updated with further details over the coming months, as the global situation relating to COVID-19 becomes clearer ahead of the Games.

The Playbooks also outline a typical journey for each stakeholder group, beginning with measures starting 14 days before arriving in Japan, testing before departure and upon arrival in the country, and the use of smartphone applications to report health and support contact tracing during Games time. Measures will also be in place to identify, isolate and treat any potential positive cases.

In the Athletes and Team Officials Playbook, for example, more information is given about their time in the Olympic and Paralympic Village, where they will be subject to strict control measures to ensure their safety. This will include limiting the amount of time athletes and support staff stay in the Village, restrictions on socialising outside the Village, movement between official Games venues and a COVID-19 screening system that will see athletes and support staff screened throughout the Games.

The measures outlined in the first versions of the Playbooks will be gradually built on over the coming weeks, as and when circumstances change and subsequent decisions are made. Information will continue to be shared and updates to the Playbooks are expected by April and June, providing further details that will allow people to progress to the next stage of planning.

Playbook Briefing Dates:
International Federations - 5 February

Broadcasters - 8 February

Athletes and Team Officials (via National Olympic & Paralympic Committees) - 9 February

Press - 10 February

St, 03/02/2021 - 09:52

With many regions in Europe enjoying abundant snowfalls, the season of Winter Triathlon kicks off this year in Asiago for the World Triathlon Asiago Winter Cup, due to take place in the beautiful Italian ski resort on February 17-19.

The previous edition of the World Triathlon Winter Cup was held last year in Harbin (China), where participants from all over the world enjoyed magnificent and cold conditions, with the air temperature on 16C below zero.

For the kick-off of the 2021 season, Asiago is now ready to host this event after hosting successfully two consecutive winter Triathlon World Championships in 2019 and 2020. This year, for the World Cup, elite races will be held on Friday, February 19th, with a winter cross duathlon event planned for Saturday and the Italian National championships planned for Sunday.

All the races will be contested in the Centro di Fondo Campolongo, in Altopiano di Asiago, one of the most fascinating areas in the Venetian mountains. With an average altitude of 1500 metres, the snow arrives abundantly every winter, and is the perfect location for competitions and training of cross-country ski, mountain bike and trail running, all around magnificent forests.

The event will take place following all the COVID guidelines and following all the restrictions and recommendations implemented by World Triathlon and the local authorities, to guarantee the safety of all participants.

For those not familiar yet with Winter Triathlon, is one of the latest additions to the triathlon portfolio of events, with athletes competing over a 4km run in the snow, to be followed by a 12km bike ride also over the snow and finishing with 10km of cross-country skiing. You can watch all of the action on the home of multisports, TriathlonLIVE.tv

Winter triathletes will have the chance to vie for the world titles this year in Andorra. The small Pyrenees country will host the World Triathlon Winter Championships in Sant Julia de Loira (Andorra) on March 19-21.

Committees inside World Triathlon progress with inaugural meetings of 2021

Po, 01/02/2021 - 07:01

All 14 Committees and Commissions inside World Triathlon have met virtually for the first meetings of 2021. The schedule, across the first meetings, included welcoming the new Executive Board Liaisons and Committee Members, of each committee and commission, with a purpose to develop their agendas and goals. The role of Chair and Vice-Chair, within each Committee and Commission, was appointed during the first meeting.

“The role of the Committees and Commissions inside World Triathlon is to advise and assist the Executive Board and Congress, in fulfilling their respective duties. The Executive Board Liaisons and Committee Member, within each Committee and Commission, are entirely dedicated to developing and improving triathlon. It’s brilliant that all Committees and Committees have progressed meetings in 2021, to build on goals and develop ongoing and new strategies to evolve our sport,” said Marisol Casado, World Triathlon President and IOC Member.

A Committee of World Triathlon has been elected by the Congress under the terms of the World Triathlon Constitution.

Last week, the Medical, Coaches and Technical Committees met (along with the Athletes and Para triathlon Committees) to further discuss their involvement in the consultation process for the restart of the Olympic and Paralympic Games qualification period, with the International Olympic Committee.

The Development Commission meeting took place, on January 12th, with all the 5 continental presidents led by World Triathlon President Marisol Casado.

A highlight from the first Age-Group Commission was the overall discussion of the Continental Strategy. A major goal of the Age-Group Commission for 2021 is that each Continental Confederation has an Age-Group Strategy. The Commission outlined that each Strategy should be purposeful, documented, agreed and referred to, adventurous, embrace different formats, value and encourage change. It should be Continent specific and the golden key would be having someone to oversee implementation.

The newly formed Equity Diversity and Inclusion Commission met for the first time to build a framework, which can be shared with National Federations, to improve equity, diversity and Inclusion in their nations. All appointed Executive Board Liaisons and Committee Members displayed that they are highly motivated to working on this newly designated commission, on a mission which is so prevalent today.

The Women’s Committee welcomed new Executive Board Liaisons and Committee Members and discussed high priority items which align with the development and implementation of their policies and for promoting equal opportunity for women to participate in all aspects of the sport of triathlon, para triathlon and multisport.

Minutes of the Committees and Commissions inside World Triathlon meetings will be available on the World Triathlon website.

Great Britain’s Peggy Crome has a history with World Triathlon

Po, 01/02/2021 - 05:35

Peggy Crome, 77-year-old triathlete from Great Britain, shares brilliant stories across her 42 World and European Championship Age-Group results and attests to being among the driving force for women in triathlon, in the early 1990’s, specifically in Great Britain.

When Peggy retired from her career in teaching, the avid age-group triathlete bought herself an endless pool in the West of England, then moved to the seaside village of Westward Ho and to this day continues to inspire many in the community, as she aims for triathlon races all around the world. In 2019 Peggy won the 75-79 age-group sprint distance race, 25 years after her first World Championship in Wellington in 1994. Prior to this, the first triathlon race she participated in had 57 entrants, 2 of which were women and she was one of them. 27 years on and Peggy is still doing the sport she loves and aiming to compete in the World Triathlon Sprint & Relay Championships to be held in Bermuda in 2021, proudly donning a GB race suit.
 
“I have represented Great Britain 42 times altogether. Of those 42, there were 27 podium finishes and of those 27 podium finishes I won 16 gold medals.”

“The good thing about triathlon is you look forward to getting older because you obviously go up an age-group and your best years are when you’re up in a new age-group. When I went up to 75, I won the Worlds and the following year I won the Worlds again.”

“This year, the Worlds are going to be in Bermuda so I should be competing there. I am in it to take part and do my best.”

Triathlon has taken Peggy all over the world to compete for Great Britain as an age-group triathlete.

“My very first World Championships race which I qualified for was in 1994 in Wellington and that was quite an eye-opener for me as most of what I had done before that was local events At the beginning of the race I kept stopping and letting people go by, I was a little freaked out by it. It was like being in a washing machine with a hundred other people. I then got a completely different mindset and kicked my feet up. I had to be a little more assertive and that got me through, I was being a little too polite and kind in the beginning.”

Peggy’s efforts in triathlon have pushed boundaries, and progressed opportunities, for women in the sport of triathlon in Great Britain, especially during the 1990’s when majority of race fields were dominated by male participants.

“I was pushing boundaries, especially pushing boundaries for women. In my first event there were 57 entrants and only 2 women. This is when triathlon really started to take off.”

When did triathlon become part of Peggy’s life?
“It really started when I was 39, at the time when I smoked like train. I asked someone I worked with who ran marathons, how long it would take to train for a marathon. The whole staff room laughed at me because I was a smoker.”

When Peggy was advised that it would take six months to train for a marathon, she then set herself a goal.

“I set myself a mile from home and a mile back and I really could not run 100-yards without stopping and coughing. But I stuck with it. I stopped smoking and then training went up in leaps and bounds.”

Peggy went on to compete in her first half-marathon and surprised herself by finishing in a strong time of 1hour58minutes, then went on to compete in many marathons before making the switch to triathlon. The sport that has become a great part of her life.

“My first World Championship race was in Wellington and I have raced in Australia 3 times. Gold Coast is my lucky ground because i have always had gold in Gold Coast.”

Peggy Crome shared that good friends Sarah Springman and Sarah Coope influenced the sport in Great Britain, especially for women, to strive for opportunities and grow participation.

Until Bermuda 2021 or the next race..
“I’ll carry on with my training, with my coach who understands what I need. It’s not important to train hard every day but have an extra day of rest and things like that. It’s more about quality than actual distance.”

Inspirational Peggy Crome also has grandchildren and great grandchildren whom she loves spending time with.
