Be sure to join the World Triathlon Family league and you’ll be able to compare your swim-bike-run know-how against friends as well as the world’s triathletes and triathlon experts.
Over on episode 68 of the World Triathlon Podcast, Gillian Sanders and Tommy Zaferes give their inside takes on the season so far and preview the Championship Finals deciders as Hayden Wilde, Alex Yee, Jelle Geens and Leo Bergere prepare to do battle for the men’s title, Georgia Taylor-Brown and Flora Duffy the women’s.
From the potentially huge difference that just a couple of degrees change in temperature could make in the water, to the athletes’ abilities to handle the unique pressures that standing on the cusp on the year’s biggest prize in the sport will bring, the duo provide the perfect accompaniment to the big race build-up, and as always you can download and listen on the go via Spotify, Apple and Google.
