Bermuda Highlighted 3 Times in Triathlon Review

IslandStats.com
Between February and November, the Triathlon and Multisport world was once again treated to non-stop action, with superb racing showcased across ITU World Triathlon Series, World Cup, Mixed Relay, Paratriathlon, Major Games and Mulitsport Festival events.

The year was jam-packed with nail-biting finishes, inspirational courage, career milestone-makers and landmark global events.

While it is hard to narrow all of the excitement down to just ten moments, Triathlon.org hand-picked the Top ITU Moments of 2018 as those season snapshots that stood out the most and helped make this one of the best seasons yet! Bermuda is highlighted three times in the 2018 Top ITU Moments.

Whether you were at April's WTS Bermuda in person or watching on TriathlonLive.tv, you will know just how loud the crowd and electric the atmosphere was for the race. It didn't hurt that hometown hero Flora Duffy absolutely CRUSHED the women's event, essentially racing solo for the majority of the Olympic-distance course. We can still hear the crowd's cheers as she took the finish tape!

The inaugural WTS Bermuda race was historical for several reasons, but one of the great moments saw Norway become the first country ever to manage a clean-sweep of a Men's WTS podium. Casper Stornes produced a killer breakaway performance to win his first WTS Gold, before compatriots Kristian Blummenfelt and Gustav Iden joined in with the Silver and Bronze.

The 2018 Triathlon season was HUGE for showcasing the sport on some of the World's Biggest Sports Stages, with three Major Games events this year. The first was the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, where Flora Duffy (BERMUDA) and Henri Schoeman (RSA) won the Individual events and Paratriathlon and Mixed Relay events were also held.

Triathlon Americas Announces 2019 Calendar

IslandStats.com
The ITU is pleased to announce that it has signed the Development Grant contract with the American Triathlon Confederation (CAMTRI), which is aimed to support the athletes’ and coaches’ development and provide a sustainable structure for organizing events and training camps and to support the activation of National Federations, as well as provide new and emerging Federations resources for development.

“We are extremely pleased with the agreement signed with CAMTRI, as it’s going to be a powerful tool to help the growth of our sport and our athletes and coaches in the continent, in a year of special importance with the PanAmerican Games taking place this summer in Lima”, said ITU President and IOC Member, Marisol Casado. “The plan presented by CAMTRI covers different areas where we want to focus in the upcoming months, including support organizing events, and camps to identify new talent, support emerging athletes and provide support to the athletes, officials and coaches for the season,” she said.

CAMTRI President, Liber García, presented a plan to use the funds offered by ITU to organize multiple Coaches and Technical Officials courses in Uruguay, Costa Rica, Barbados and Colombia, as well as support organizing online courses both in English and Spanish with the support of Panam Sports.

The grant also covers youth camps in Colombia, Costa Rica and Trinidad and Tobago, as well as the organization of a camp for athletes qualified for the PanAm Games coming from emerging National Federations, and direct economic support to some National Federations to help the growth of Paratriathlon in the region, with the goal of increasing the numbers of American athletes competing at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics.

2019 will have plenty of dates for the continent’s triathletes to mark on their calendars. The American Triathlon Confederation (CAMTRI) Executive Board has also approved the calendar of events for the 2019 season, a year marked by three WTS events hosted for the second year in a row in the Continent, three World Cups, one Para World Cup and the Lima PanAmerican Games, as well as 19 American Cups and the Continental Championships for every distance.

The season will start in February in Havana (Cuba) for the fourth edition of the American Cup and the Iberoamerican Middle Distance championships. Costa Rica will play host in March to the Central American and Caribbean Championships in Playa Hermosa, while Sarasota (USA) will host in March the CAMTRI Paratriathlon American Championships.

As for Major Games, athletes competing in the South American Beach Games will go to Rosario (Argentina in March), while Lima (Peru) will be hosting the 2019 Pan American Games in August. October will be the turn for the World Beach Games in San Diego.

March will be a pretty busy month for American triathletes, with the CAMTRI Sprint Triathlon American Cup and South American Championships taking place in Montevideo (Uruguay) and Monterrey (Mexico) will host the CAMTRI Triathlon American Championships.

For the 2019 season, triathletes from all over the world will head to the Americas for three World Triathlon Series, just as they did last year: Bermuda, in April; Montreal (Canada) in June and Edmonton (Canada) in July - also host of a Mixed Relay Series. As for World Cups, Santo Domingo is a new addition to the continent’s calendar, joining Huatulco (Mexico) and Salinas (Ecuador).
