Olympic Games 2020 Triathlon Dates Announced

IslandStats.com
The Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee has announced the competition Schedule for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, confirming the Men’s Triathlon event will take place on Monday July 27th and the Women’s race the following day. The highly anticipated Olympic debut of the Triathlon Mixed Relay will take place on Saturday August 1st.

The individual races will be disputed over the standard Olympic distances (1.5km swim, 40km bike and 10km run), early morning in the fantastic setting of Odaiba Marine Park. The Mixed Relay teams will bring together two men and two women from the same country, each completing a mini-triathlon before tagging their team mate. The team event also takes place at Odaiba Marine Park, where each of the four athletes will complete a 300m swim, 7.5km bike and 1.5km run.

“We are extremely satisfied with the dates of our events, following months of hard work taking into consideration all the requirements of the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee and our Sport Department”, said ITU President and IOC member, Marisol Casado. “We have agreed competition dates that will fit extremely well into global television schedules, and we are confident of incredible engagement with the spectators, both on-site and watching on TVs around the world. It is perfect that the Mixed Relay, one of the most thrilling and vibrant spectacles in sport, will make its Olympic debut on ‘Super Saturday’,” she added.

A total of 110 athletes - 55 men and 55 women - will compete in Tokyo 2020, with the relay teams being formed of countries with minimum 2 women and 2 men athletes qualified, based on the various ways to achieve that.

The 30 Olympic triathlon medals awarded to date have been split between 13 countries, emphasizing the strength of the sport worldwide. The Men’s Gold has twice been won by Great Britain’s Alistair Brownlee, at London 2012 and Rio 2016, and accompanying him on the podium on both occasions was his brother, Jonathan Brownlee. A Bronze Medalist in London, the younger of the Brownlee siblings then picked up silver in Rio to complete a famous family one-two.

In the women’s event, Swiss athletes have twice taken home the gold, in 2000 and 2012. Of those, Nicola Spirig is the only female triathlete to have won two Olympic medals, taking the gold in an incredibly tight London 2012 finale ahead of Sweden’s Lisa Norden and then the silver at Rio 2016, finishing behind the USA’s Gwen Jorgensen.

Duffy Set to Return in Hamburg Wasser World Triathlon

IslandStats.com
The longest-running World Triathlon Series event returns to the calendar once more this weekend, as the elite triathletes head to Germany for the Hamburg Wasser World Triathlon.

Ready for another big performance is the two-time World Champion Flora Duffy, returning to competition after a foot injury kept her out of racing in Leeds. The Bermudian, who has won two races this season but did not finish in Abu Dhabi, needs precious points to keep herself at the top of the rankings until the end of the season, and after victory here last year, it is a course she knows well.

It’s a starting list packed with medal contenders, too, leaving the podium places wide open along with the world ranking standings by the end of the weekend, and WTS Hamburg is again set to be one of the spectacles of the season as thousands of spectators line the course to cheer on their heroes.

Proudly sporting the golden number 1 will be USA’s Katie Zaferes, who has just been named the US Athlete of the Month having earned the top place in the rankings after finishing third in WTS Leeds. The American was also crucial for her team as it grabbed a first-ever victory in the Mixed Relay Series, a hard-earned podium double that Zaferes is eager to repeat in Hamburg.

That certainly won’t be an easy task, with many of her fellow teammates also showing excellent recent form. Look out for Kirsten Kasper, likely to be one of the first athletes out of the water, along with the ever-impressive Summer Cook and Taylor Spivey.

The Brits are also known for their strength in the water, and Vicky Holland, Jessica Learmonth and Non Stanford will be fighting from the opening strokes in order to emerge and ascend the famous Hamburg stairs among the first group of athletes into transition.
