World Triathlon President Reflects Highlighting Dame Duffy
World Triathlon President and IOC Member Marisol Casado reflects on 2022, a season that had it all.
As we reach the end of a truly unique season for so many reasons, it is my great pleasure to introduce the World Triathlon Yearbook for 2022 and reflect on another memorable year in our sport.
Two outstanding World Champions were crowned in Abu Dhabi, with Flora Duffy making yet more history with a record fourth womenís title and Leo Bergere securing his first-ever Series gold at just the right moment to win the menís title.
I am delighted for them both, but want to recognize Georgia Taylor-Brown, Hayden Wilde, and Alex Yee for the enormous parts they played in ensuring the battles for the sportís biggest prizes this year went down to the wire and providing such incredible and inspiring entertainment to fans all over the world.
As well as our champions, I know that those who fell just short of the titles will return in 2023 with renewed determination.
The 2022 WTCS season began with two fantastic events last year in Hamburg and Abu Dhabi and continued with seven more races this year in Yokohama, Leeds, Montreal, Hamburg, Cagliari, Bermuda, and the Championship Finals back in Abu Dhabi in late November, each venue bringing its own unique character to the Series.
