    After a two-year Covid-induced hiatus from Leeds, the World Triathlon Championship Series returns to Roundhay Park, albeit on an altered course staying away from the city centre, the races are set to be as challenging as ever. With time running out on the Olympic qualifying period there will be a big emphasis for some athletes this weekend as they try and move as high up the rankings as possible. For others, this is a chance to kick off 2021 and prepare for the summer games. The star-studded line-up will certainly provide some entertainment as many of the World’s best athletes descend on the UK stop of the WTCS.

  • WTCS Yokohama

    The World Triathlon Championship Series (WTCS) is finally back on our screens this weekend after a long absence. With restrictions still in place for several nations, some athletes have not been able to race since the end of 2019.

    The event has great significance with Olympic qualifying starting this weekend. As the Olympics are taking place in Tokyo this year, it is a great opportunity for athletes to familiarise themselves with the same conditions and setup of what they expect to see later in the year.

    Brownlee showed signs of a return to the form we expect from the double Olympic Champion as he was narrowly beaten by current World Champion Vincent Luis (FRA). Meanwhile, Beth Potter ran away from the women’s field to claim her maiden World Cup victory.
