Spain sweeps gold in the Aquathlon debut at the ANOC World Beach Games

Po, 14/10/2019 - 07:05
The day started early in the ANOC World Beach Games in Doha, with both Male and Female athletes competing in the debut of Aquathlon in the event, in what ended up being a golden sunrise for Spain, claiming both gold medals. The Men’s field was led by the current Aquathlon World Champion, Emmanuel Lejeune (BEL), who commanded the 30 men competing in the World Beach Games right from the first meters of the 2.5km run. Some other fast runners, like Rostislav Petsov (AZE), Mark Devay (HUN) or Kevin Tarek Vinuelas (ESP) quickly followed him and managed to open a small group that led the athletes into the calm waters of the Doha bay. It was during the 750m swim where the strong swimmers were able to take the lead and control the situation, with Tarek Vinuelas quickly getting in the first position, with Devay behind him, and exited the water with almost 25 seconds over Domen Dormik (SLO), who led the chasers out of the water. But in the last 2.5km of the run the Spaniard made it clear that he was here to fight for the gold medal. With Lejeune almost a minute behind, and with only Devay following his steps, they both run almost together until the last lap. It was then when Tarek Vinuelas added the extra gear just to see that no one was able to follow him. All smiles, he took the tape to top up a brilliant season that had him also on top of the podium at the Mediterranean Beach Games in Patras, as well as the silver medal in the Pontevedra Aquathlon Worlds. Behind him, Devay crossed the finish line in the second place with Petsov grabbing the bronze medal. Great performance also for Hugo Ruiz, from Colombia, finishing in fourth place, followed by Ramon Matute (ECU) and Kotaro Watanabe (JPN). “I struggled a bit in the first meters of the run until I could get a good position, and then managed to just stay behind the leading group until the swim. I had a really great swim, I was keeping an eye on Mark (Devay) as I know he is also a great swimmer, and we both passed the group and kept going by ourselves. I am so glad that we were able to compete in the original swim distance. I had a fantastic swim, and I think it was key for the victory”, said the Spaniard. “In the she second run I was trying to cool down and keep the situation under control. I thought I was going to be fighting for the medals, but when I saw that Devay couldn’t follow me at the end I was really happy. This is a surprise for me! I now just need to recover and try to perform...

Aquathlon set to make its debut at the ANOC Doha World Beach Games

So, 12/10/2019 - 20:20
Best Aquathletes of the world head now to Doha, Qatar, for the debut of the sport in the inaugural ANOC World Beach Games, set to take place in the pristine beach of Katara, on the northern shores of Doha. With a total of 60 athletes competing, the Elite individual races will take place on Monday, October 14th, early morning, with the 2x2 Mixed Relay taking place the following day. The athletes will compete on a 2.5km run, 700m swim and a final 2.5k run for the victory, while for the Mixed Relay event, each athlete will do a 1.25k run, 500m swim and another 1.25k run, with teams formed with a man and a woman from the same country, and each athletes to the distance twice. In the Men’s field, all eyes will be set on Belgium’s Emmanuel Lejeune, current Aquathlon World Champion, and willing to get in the inaugural Beach Games podium, even though he will have some strong competence on the likes of Spain’s Kevin Tarek Vinuela -silver medallist in last year’s World Championships and winner of the Mediterranean Games-. Some strong swimmers in the usual ITU circuit, like Azerbaijan’s Rotislav Pevtsov, current bronze medalist in the triathlon sprint distance European Championships and with many World Cup medals on his tally, will be hard to beat in the shore of Doha. Hungarian Mark Devay, Sergiy Kurochkin (UKR), Tomas Svoboda (CRO) or Slovenian Domen Dornik, a member of the ASICS World Triathlon Team, will be among the ones to watch. With 30 female athletes taking the start only 5 minutes after the men, wearing number one will be Roumania’s Antoanela Manac. Her third place in the 2018 Aquathlon European Championships, first one in the U23 category, put her in a position to be able to fight for the victory in Doha, having shown before her strength both in the run and swim segments. Some strong Aquathlon specialists, like Itzel Arroyo Equino (MEX); Hannah Kitchen (GBR), Xisca Tous (ESP) or Margarita Krylova (UKR), will have to show their competency against athletes that have been for long time in the triathlon international circuit like Juri Ide (JPN) or Zsanett Bragmayer (HUN). The striking setting of Katara Beach, where the Aquathlon venue is located, will be the Beach Games epicentre, hosting all of the medal events as well as the complete competitions for 3x3 Basketball, Kitefoil Racing, Open Water Swimming 5Km, Individual Kata, Beach Wrestling, Beach Tennis and Beach Soccer, on top of the already mentioned Aquathlon. Up to 1,500 athletes...

Upcoming Grand Final organisers meet in Lausanne for the Transfer of Knowledge programme

Pá, 11/10/2019 - 14:46
ITU is proud to announce the successful completion of the first edition of the Transfer of Knowledge session for the organisers of the ITU Grand Final. During two days, more than 25 participants from the LOCs of Lausanne 2019, Edmonton 2020, Bermuda 2021 and Abu Dhabi 2022, as well as ITU staff, reviewed the operations and plans that were successfully implemented and delivered in the last edition of the event and also pointed up suggestions for future editions that should have been managed differently, to help future organisers to continue delivering an event that has become one of the most successful in the ITU calendar. “It is extremely important for us to have the opportunity to work closely with the organizers of our top event to not only help to grow our sport and our Grand Final, but also to ensure that we implement sustainable procedures, take advantage of the previous experiences and learn from the past to be better in the future working together as a team”, said Gergely Markus, ITU Sports Director. “I am really proud of the commitment and involvement not only of the last organisers, the city of Lausanne, but also of the upcoming ones, with all of them sending fantastic delegations to Lausanne to make sure that, working together with the ITU staff, we take all the possible steps to improve our events”. ITU launched the Transfer of Knowledge (TOK) programme last summer with the local organizing committees of the Multisport World Championships, and now extended the initiative with the Grand Final organisers of the next three years, working with all of them well ahead of time to helping them achieve the best possible outcome. During two days of meetings in the Maison Du Sports in Lausanne, the Grand Final organisers and the ITU staff went into details of the dos and don’ts in different areas: Technical Operations and venue design, anti-doping, sport presentation, athletes services, sponsoring and branding, media and communications and ITU services. “With these two days of meetings, plus the information that we have after we have received data from the surveys to all participants, we have a deep understanding of the demands of the athletes, cities, organisers and different stakeholders, and is great to have the opportunity of sharing and discussing all this information with future organisers”, explained Thanos Nikopoulos, ITU Head of Operations.

Triathlon development at ITU coaches course in Manizales

Pá, 11/10/2019 - 11:47
With funding from from the development and assistance budget approved by the Olympic Solidary Commission, the International Triathlon Union held a Level 2 Coaches Course in Manizales, Colombia. The course was held from 25-29 September for 18 Colombian coaches, under the guidance of World Triathlon Facilitators Claudia Beristain (Mexico), Rodrigo Milazzo (Brazil) and Vicent Beltran (Spain). The course was held in Manizales, Colombia and it was a level 2 coaching course. The course was aimed to develop, implement, monitor and review a series of sessions and coaching programmes for triathlon club level, juniors and U23 triathletes. Spain’s Vicent Beltran recap on the course experience and how much he values development in World Triathlon. What did you take away from the course? Colombia has many talented coaches that if they are given the right opportunities and support, great things will happen there in the near future. What do you think is the most important lesson, that athletes, developing countries, learnt when starting out in the sport? The key is to identify the weaknesses and implement strategies for short and long term. All the National Federations (NF) around the world struggle, some in finances, some finding athletes but the key for the emerging federation is to set objective, achievable and realistic goals and use the Human Resources (coaches they have available) to work for common development of the sport. How much do you think development athletes influence and build the triathlon landscape in their own country? Having a role model is always a bonus for a federation. Nowadays with social media this information can easily reach the younger generations and therefore, it is a powerful resource that NF have to use. They definitely have to support their best athletes and capitalise this investment by encouraging other athletes to come on board. What have your professional career goals, in the sport, been for this year? My main focus have been developing the new athletes education program and golden standard documents for NF. I have also been involved in all the translation process of the coaching courses into Spanish while delivering courses and camps with ETU, ITU and ASTC. I have been so privileged to also going the ASICS World Triathlon team in Karlovy Vary WC for the first time. On the other hand, I continue coaching athletes from all over the globe helping them to be the best version the can be. How much do you think the development...

ITU partners with Tecta for fast and reliable water quality tests

St, 09/10/2019 - 15:34
ITU is pleased to announce that it has partnered with the company Tecta-PDS for delivering fast and reliable microbiological water quality tests in ITU sanctioned events. This portable laboratory, already implemented in the 2019 ITU World Triathlon Olympic Qualification Event in Tokyo, allows the ITU staff to obtain results of E-Coli and Enterococci bacteria in the body of water tested in less than 12 hours. “For ITU, the health and safety of our athletes is our first priority, but also is a priority our commitment with the clean environments, sustainability and legacy wherever we go, and with this partnership we show once again that we are not only talking, we are taking actions”, said ITU President and IOC member, Marisol Casado. “Partnering with someone that will help us swim in cleaner environments, work with LOCs to improve the water quality everywhere we go and leave that legacy to the host cities is something of paramount importance not only for our organization, but also should be a priority for all, to do our contribution to make the world a better and cleaner place”, she said. “For us, partnering with TECTA means that we are able to have results of the water quality tests in such a short period of time allows the Technical team on site to take decisions in the last minute, always according to the quality of the body of water”, said ITU Sports Director, Gergely Markus. Working with the portable Tecta Lab in the Tokyo Test Event proved to be decisive for us, giving ITU the ability to take decisions by having the latest data available. The portable lab is really easy and simple to use, and gave the ability to know if the water quality levels were above our threshold within 12 hours. The results were completely reliable, and matched the ones we received from the laboratory used by the LOC, which came 48 hours later. During the four days of the Test Event, as well as the week before, the ITU Team in Tokyo performed two daily tests of the water at Odaiba Bay. Both the tests performed on the Tecta Laboratory and in the LOC Laboratory showed low levels of E-Coli and Enterococci in the days leading up to the event. But the Tecta results confirmed the breach of the protective curtain on August 16th/17th, providing valuable data for ITU to take the decision of canceling the swim leg of the Paratriathlon event, as well as the swim familiarization for the Mixed Relay, according to the water quality tests. The rapid E-Coli results from...

Russia claims 12 medals at the Alanya Paratriathlon World Cup

Ne, 06/10/2019 - 13:55
With a packed start list in all categories, the sunny and seaside town of Alanya, in Turkey, was home for another leg of the Paratriathlon World Cup to see Russians paratriathletes shine. 12 medals were in the tally of the Russian delegation, one of the best ever results for the country, with multiple athletes claiming some really valuable points for the Paralympic Qualification ranking. PTWC With a field that was not one of the strongest ones in the last few weeks, Austrian Florian Brungraber took advantage of the crowded calendar in Autumn to claim the Alanya Paratriathlon World Cup title, the first major win of his career, and one that gives him some really valuable points towards the paralympic qualification. Behind him in the finish line was one of the most experienced man on the field, Frenchman Ahmed Andaloussi, while Benjamin Lenatz (GER) finished in third place, making his name one to remember in the list for the candidates to compete at the Paralympic Games next summer in Tokyo. In the women’s race, Margret Ijdema (NED) also got her first-ever win in an international paratriathlon race, after a season that has seen her multiple times in the podium, but never on top of it. Behind her, Mexican Brenda Osnaya Alvarez, with her best result this season so far, followed by Mona Francis (FRA), who had one of the fastest swims of the day, enough to grant her the third place in the finish line. PTS2 Two Russian athletes claimed 1-2 places in the Men’s PTS2 category, with Mikhail Astashov taking the tape with over a minute of difference over his teammate Vasiili Egorov, getting the best places ever for both of them on a Paratriathlon World Cup. Behind them, another athlete who made one of his best results in Alanya, British Stuart Meikle, a name to add to the long list of British paratriathletes in the circuit. In the women’s race, and with only three athletes competing in Alanya, the victory was for the Japanese Yukako Hata, with a magnificent performance over the three disciplines to finish with over four minutes ahead of Cecile Saboureau (FRA), who claimed the silver medal. The third place was for Veronika Gabitova, from Russia. PTS3 Another exhibition of Russian athletes in the Men’s PTS3 race, with Viktor Chebotarev showing a powerful performance across all three disciplines, and taking the victory to then wait for more than 10 minutes to see the next competitor over the finish line.

New York based Harry Newhaus is an ambitious age-group triathlete

Pá, 04/10/2019 - 13:00
Harry Neuhaus, born in 1960 in Mexico, is a triathlete who has targeted the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final races in Cozumel in 2016, Rotterdam in 2017 and more recently in Lausanne, Switzerland in 2019. Harry began his triathlon pathway one month prior to turning 50-yeaes of age, he caught the triathlon bug and his ambition to be a top age-group triathlete began. After racing his way onto many podiums, the Mexican age-group triathlete looked into what it was going to take to race and qualify for an ITU World Championships. So the journey to being a World Triathlete began. Now based in New York City, Harry works hard and trains hard to represent and race to his personal best. It takes a village…natural talent, determination, discipline, support at home, great coaching, solid understanding about hydration and nutrition and lots of work. How did you get into the sport of triathlon? I began my endurance career running a marathon one month prior to my 50th birthday. Two years later, one of my marathon training partners suggested I try doing a mini-sprint triathlon and I said why not. I did it and got hooked. This was at the end of 2012. In 2013 I did two marathons and several triathlons, including an IRONMAN 70.3. How did you get introduced into Empire Tri Club? How would you describe the comradery within the club? I ran my first marathon, NYC, in 2010 and since my decision was very last minute, I got in by supporting a charity, NYRR Team For Kids. The following two seasons, I volunteered as an ambassador/helper for the TFK runs and in 2012 I met Alison who was one of the TFK coaches. I mentioned to her that I had done one short triathlon and was thinking of doing more next season. We stayed in touch and in 2013, when I started to train for my marathons and triathlons, Alison invited me to come to some training sessions with the club. Needless to say, it was an amazing experience. Everyone was so nice, so low key and the coaches were extremely knowledgeable. It was all great and Alison noticed that I know my way around coaching runners. I was asked to help with the Thursday night speed work sessions. Soon after that I became a certified marathon/half-marathon coach as well as a USTA certified coach…and that was the beginning of a beautiful relationship… When did you decide that representing Mexico at a World Championship level was something you wanted to aspire to? Early In 2016 season, I was on the podium or top 10% of several local races...

Team Varney, Australian husband and wife who do triathlon together Meet Lee Varney, a fire fighter, and Bec Varney, a nurse, from Australia, who swim, bike and run together and celebrated their 20 year anniversary competing at the 2019 World Triathlon Age-Group Championships together. Don’t look at times, look at faces in the crowd, both those cheering you on and those that are inspired by you. Times come and go, but those faces last a life time. How did you get into the sport of triathlon? Lee: I played hockey for the New South Wales, Australia. fire brigade team and always competed in the world firefighter games. One year they didn’t offer field hockey and only ice hockey so I needed a new sport, I owned a bike so I thought I would give triathlon a go. The Olympic distance nearly killed me, with no training I thought it was going to be easy, that was 2012. Bec: I started 4 years ago after watching lee for years and being too nervous to give it a go, because I was on the larger side. After losing 20-kgs I started to run then took on the bike and then my worst fear was the swim I literally hadn’t been in the water for a very long time not even to take my kids swimming because I was too scared of being in a swim suit I finally got in and have never looked back. Who are you racing in Lausanne with? We are racing husband and wife it was our 20 year anniversary this year and wanted to do something special and Triathlon it was, we are going together no other known supporters but we are not shy and will meet people quickly. Lee is a firefighter, and swimming teacher Bec is a nurse, therefore we don’t get to see each other very often due to shift work, so being able to train together has been awesome we have spent quality time training and chatting away. What inspires you? Lee: my children. I have always told them when things get hard to push on and I have shown them this with sport, my swimming kids I want to show a positive role model too and that hard work pays off and that it doesn’t matter where you come as long as you “tri” hard and finally watching people in triathlon overcome things. I look at the older generation in the sport and hope to one day still be competing like them, it’s incredible. Bec: watching people in triathlon overcome and get over some major trials to keep competing there is many an amazing story out there in the triathlon community. My husband inspires me I have watched overcome PTSD, using triathlon it’s...

Elite female coaches to benefit from specialised programme for leadership and technical training

Út, 01/10/2019 - 08:24
The International Summer Sports Federations of Cycling, Rowing, Rugby, Tennis, Triathlon and Wrestling are cooperating to help develop the leadership and technical skills of high-potential female coaches. Supporting Recommendation 6 of the IOC’s Gender Equality Review Project, which seeks to increase the share of female coaches at the Olympic Games, the six International Federations have teamed up with the IOC through Olympic Solidarity to offer a 14-month programme for a limited number of high-performance coaches managed by the Women’s Sport Leadership Academy at the University of Hertfordshire, Great Britain. The initiative began as a discussion between various stakeholders on how to address the consistently low percentage of women coaches at the elite level, and how to create pathways for these coaches, or women wishing to achieve this level as well as involving critical stakeholders at the national and international level to increase sustainability. The aim is to upskill or reinforce strengths in the candidates and at the same time create a network to help these coaches reach their full potential as elite trainers and to be able to maintain a role at this level. The participants will also be encouraged to work within their national and regional settings in cooperation with their National Olympic Committees and National Federations to help others and raise awareness around females wishing to become elite coaches. The Women’s Sport Leadership Academy for High Performance Coaches (WSLA HPC) has been specifically designed and developed for high-performance coaches, with the aim of preparing them to step up and become part of an increased cohort of female triathlon coaches at the Continental, International and Olympic level. The ITU was chosen to be one of the first International Federations to take part in this project due to its existing initiatives around women in triathlon coaching. The five names selected for the first programme are Kate Murray (RSA), Ljudmilla Medan (Serbia), Najila Aljeraiwi (KUW), Pamela Fulton (ZIM) and Pooja Chaurushi (IND). ITU President and IOC Member Marisol Casado said; “The ITU has long been proud of the gender equality in the very DNA of our sport. We do, however, recognise the continued need for more elite-level female coaches and have already put several initiatives in place to try and address that shortage. As such, we are grateful for this recognition of our work so far and the opportunity to collaborate...
