Following the drawing of transition numbers for the 38 National Federations with Triathletes Qualified for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the individual and mixed relay start lists have now also been confirmed.
On July 2th, the Women’s race will see current World Triathlon Championship Series Leader Maya Kingma (NED) wearing the number one, the USA trio of Taylor Knibb (11), Summer Rappaport (12), and Katie Zaferes (13) towards the center of transition.
Bermuda’s Flora Duffy (29), like the British and Austrian men and Italian women, finds herself in potentially prime position at the very start of transition by the dismount line.
From there, the athletes will have the length of transition to move into the best spot to tackle the first left-hand bend out of the blue carpet, as well as a shorter distance to push their bikes coming off the back of what will be a hot and hard 40km ride.
The Rio 2016 Silver and Bronze medalists, Swiss legend Nicola Spirig (26) and Britain’s 2018 World Champion Vicky Holland (32) occupy opposite ends of transition, Holland’s teammates Georgia Taylor-Brown (34) and Jessica Learmonth (33) setting up next to French pair Cassandre Beaugrand (30) and Leonie Periault (31).
