Members of an advanced team for the World Triathlon Series event in Bermuda are ending a three day site visit and departing the island today.
The Bermudian public are still in the dark about route and what needs to be done in order to support this event as no information has been revealed.
www.islandstats.com has on numerous occasions asked for any updated information but has constantly run into walls.
For the first time, the International Triathlon Union (ITU) will host a “World Series” event in Bermuda this April.
Bermudian Flora Duffy is the two time ITU World Champion.
The contingent of visitors were greeted by Minister of Economic Development and Tourism Jamahl Simmons and Minister of Social Development and Sports Zane DeSilva.
Bermuda will receive a boost through ITU promotion of the event, especially because it is the birth-home of their World Champion, a popular figure in the Triathlon World, Flora Duffy.
Duffy last month dramatically won the Elite Women’s 2017 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final in Rotterdam, capping a near perfect season, and retaining her title as ITU World Champion. It was her sixth ITU race victory of the season.
The Bermudian was also part of the local delegation that bid for ITU events to be staged in Bermuda.
The event is expected to attract elite athletes, top amateurs and spectators from all over the world for the Triathlon Festival in the City of Hamilton during the last week of April 2018.
