In the light of the rapid spread worldwide of COVD-19, the Executive Board of the International Triathlon Union has decided to suspend all activities until the 30th April.
With that said, the MS Amlin Bermuda Triathlon organizers released a statement, “In the interest of public health and safety with the rapid worldwide spread of COVID-19, the Executive Board of the International Triathlon Union (ITU) has suspended all World Triathlon activities until April 30, 2020. This affects next month’s MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda, scheduled for April 18.
To date, Bermuda remains free of the coronavirus with no confirmed cases and the Bermuda government has taken the necessary and precautionary measures to protect the island. Bermuda’s Premier David Burt has asked organizers of all events involving 50 or more people, to postpone activities.”
Chair of World Triathlon Bermuda, Hazel Clark said, “These are unusual and challenging times for us all in Bermuda and we will continue to work in the best interest of our stakeholders and visitor participants. Situations such as this present the opportunity for us to display the best of humanity as we navigate the impact of coronavirus as a community.”
World Triathlon Bermuda is contacting all stakeholders and athletes with information about the postponement and will update the public on future plans as more information on rescheduling the event becomes available.
