New TO’s Certification System to train the next generation of ITU Officials

Ne, 15/09/2019 - 16:26
ITU is pleased to announce the new ITU Technical Official Certification System, following the success of the previous one that has been in place since 2009 and will be applied until December 2020. Our Technical Officials are indeed a reference across the sports organizations, but ITU’s goal is always to keep improving and try not only to attract new Officials, but also to give them the best opportunities and education that we can. “We are extremely proud of our Technical Officials, they are one of the most valuable assets of ITU, and their passion and commitment to the sport are truly amazing. ITU would definitely not be the same without them, but we are really looking forward to continuing investing in their education, and this new program will provide them with the best tools so that they will keep officiating at their best, delivering the best triathlon events all across the world”, said ITU President and IOC member, Marisol Casado. To get the new generations of Technical Officials ready for the future, the new certification system will be in place from the beginning of the 2021 session, which means that all the Technical Officials will be evaluated with the existing system for the last time in January 2020. With the previous system, we were able to witness an exceptional growth on our Technical Officials’ numbers all over the world, especially in the female participation, and with the new one The ITU Sport Department will be looking to strength more the quality standards of the program along with the improvement of the competence and capability of our Technical Officials, to continue delivering top-tier events all across the globe. The main changes between the new and the previous certification system are: - ITU TO level 3 has been divided in two levels (ITU TO Level 3A and ITU TO level 3B) - It is now a mandate for an Official to revalidate his/her TO level online in order to be eligible for an ITU TO level 2 seminar or an ITU TO level 3A seminar. - As part of the eligibility criteria for an ITU TO level 1 official to progress to ITU Level 2, is considered the number of different officiating roles, additional to the number of events and the years on the specific level that he/she has so far. - As part of the eligibility criteria for an ITU TO level 2 official to progress to ITU Level 3A, is considered the assignment to a chief official position on a WTS event or WTS GF, additional to the number of events as TD and the years on the specific...

ITU is pleased to announce that the 2020 Winter Triathlon World Championships will take place for the second consecutive year in the Italian town of Asiago, in the heart of the Alps, from the 7th until the 9th of February.

Swiss athletes storm the Zofingen ITU Powerman Long Distance Duathlon World Championships

Út, 10/09/2019 - 10:41
Showing once again that racing at home makes a difference, Swiss duathletes dominated the 2019 Zofingen ITU Powerman Long Distance Duathlon World Championships, with a complete podium sweep in the Women’s Elite race, and with a man taking also the silver medal. Despite a crash of last year’s winner Petra Eggenschwiler, the Swiss women also shone in Zofingen, with Nina Zoller, Melanie Maurer and Corina Hengartner claiming the first three places in the podium after the 10km run, 144km bike and 30km run in the Swiss Alps. In the Men’s Elite race, Belgian Diego Van Loy claimed the World title, crossing the finish line ahead of Jens Gossauer from Switzerland and Daan De Groot from the Netherlands. The 31st Powerman Zofingen, the 12th time that is also the Long Distance Duathlon World Championships, recorded a total of around 1,200 participants at the weekend, roughly the same number as last year. The trio Eggenschwiler, Maurer and Zoller put pressure on the front right from the start and also went straight to the bike course after the running course. When the three of them were riding together, Eggenschwiler crashed in a railway underpass, leaving her without chances of being in the podium after loosing three minutes. Even though she tried to get back with the leaders, she ended up withdrawing. With the three Swiss running together, it was in the last km when Zoller managed to lose last year’s silver medallist Maurer. “I can’t believe it,” said the new World Champion from Chur. “I bit my teeth, stepped on the gas, and I’m overjoyed now.” Maurer said: “The bike course was difficult, I was freezing, and I’m also very much looking forward to the great performance from us Swiss. I like NIna Zoller very much to grant victory.” In the men’s event, the Swiss Michael Ott led after three hours ahead of the Russian Maxim Kuzmin, the Dutchman Daan De Groot, the Swiss Jens Gossauer, the Belgian Seppe Odeyn and the Swiss Fabian Zehnder. In the last section, the hard 30km run, Gossauer, eighth last year, went first, followed by Diego Van Looy (BEL), Odeyn, De Groot, Kuzmin and Zehnder. Van Looy made a final push that was impossible for anyone else to follow, to just claim the World crown, with Gossauer in second place and De Groot finishing in third place. The 31st edition of Powerman Zofingen proved to be a tough one. Not only the rain was a problem for the top duathlete, the thermometer marked 13 degrees Celsius. Around 1,200 athletes took part in the races at...

Spain dominates the Banyoles Paratriathlon World Cup

Ne, 08/09/2019 - 17:36
With four gold medals and another four more athletes in the podiums, Spain completed a golden journey this Sunday at the Banoyles Paratriathlon World Cup, with current World Champs Hector Catalá (PTVI Men), Alejandro Sanchez Palomero (PTS4 Men), Daniel Molina (PTS3 Men) and Jairo Ruiz (PTS5 Men) grabbing victories in the fast and technical circuit of Banyoles just a week after the Grand Final in Lausanne. PTVI What a week has been for Spaniard Hector Catala Laparra, adding the title in Banyoles to the World Champion he got just one week ago. For Catala, the two victories and his second place in the Montreal WPS mean that he is mathematically qualified for Tokyo 2020 Paralympics. Behind him in the finish chute were Arnaud Grandjean (FRA) and USA’s Brad Snyder, who repeated the third place that he also got in yokohama WPS this season. In the Women’s category, with the current World Champion Susana Rodriguez not present in Banyoles to prepare for the European Championships, it was Itailan Anna Barbaro who took the opportunity and broke the tape in 1h11’04’’, followed close by two American couples, Elizabeth Baker and Amy Dixon and their guides. PTS5 Another local hero, Spaniard Jairo Ruiz, delighted all the spectators in Banyoles by claiming the title in the PTS5 category, just a week after finishing in a bittersweet 4th place in the World Championships in Lausanne. Ruiz, who was a bronze medalist in the Rio 2016 Paralympics, managed to recuperate the time he lost in the swim to cross the finish line just ahead of Brazilian Carlos Rafael Viana and José Abraham Estrada Sierra (MEX). In the Women’s race, Kate Doughty gave the Aussies their second gold medal of the day in Banyoles, storming through the course around the idilic lake to claim the victory in the PTS5 category, almost two minutes ahead of Alisa Kolpakchy (UKR) and Kerry Large (GBR). PTS4 Alejandro Sanchez Palomero gave the Spanish team another joyful moment by crossing the finish line in the first place in the PTS4 category. The current World Champion also secured a spot for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics next summer. Brazilian Jorge Luis Fonseca finished in the second place, while a fantastic run gave Japanese Hideki Uda the third spot in the podium. A perfectly executed race gave Japanese Mami Tani the gold medal in Banyoles, to redeem herself from the disqualification in the World Championships in Lausanne, and proving again that she is in a great shape after the Tokyo Test...

Lindemann and Luis command victories in the fast and furious Banyoles World Cup

So, 07/09/2019 - 21:16
The scenic little town of Banyoles, in the north of Spain, was the perfect scenario for 130 of the world’s best triathletes to return to racing just a week after the Grand Final for the 2019 ITU Banyoles World Cup, with two fast and furious races that saw Laura Lindemann (GER) and Vincent Luis (FRA) once again on top of the podium. Women’s review The race in Banyoles started with a last minute addition to an already packed start list. After being on the waitlist for a week, two-times World Champion Flora Duffy (BER) decided to show up in the athlete’s lounge in case there was a last-minute withdrawal and it was just 30 minutes before the start of the race, when the officials checked that Julia Hauser (AUT) was not present, when she was given the green light to make it to the start line. With almost no warm-up and wearing an unusual for her number 69, she the last one of a field already packed, with last year’s World Champion Vicky Holland (GBR) wearing the number 1, but with other usual athletes in the podiums like Kirsten Kasper (USA), Laura Lindemann (GER), Emma Jackson (AUS) or Claire Michel (BEL), just to name a few. As soon as the horn gave the start to the race, Duffy proved that she was there for a reason, and commanded the women in the 750m swim in the pristine waters of Lake Banyoles. Right on her feet was Sara Perez Sala (ESP), cheered out of the water by thousands of spectators, who went wild when local hero, Carolina Routier (ESP) was also in the front pack out of the water. The three of them were joined by a powerful group of athletes, including Lindemann, Kasper, Tamara Gorman (USA), Maya Kingma (NED), Gillian Backhouse (AUS) and Simone Ackermann (RSA) and managed to open a gap that proved to be decisive, with 42 seconds in the first lap of the three that the triathletes had to do around the lake. With the nine athletes working together in turns and Duffy commanding the small group, the chasers had little to nothing to do, and kept loosing time in the two remaining laps even though Vicky Holland and Miriam Casillas Garcia (ESP) were doing their best to keep pushing. By the end of the technical and flat 20km bike course, the nine leaders had one minute and 15 seconds over the chasing group, and it looked like the medals were going to be disputed in the fast 5km run circuit. And even though the first one out of the second transition was Routier -flying with the cheers of the locals- Duffy showed in the first meters who was in...

Spanish stars headline home Paratriathlon World Cup

Pá, 06/09/2019 - 17:53
After three gold medals at last week’s Paratriathlon World Championships, Spain’s athletes are aiming to continue their success on home soil at the Banyoles Paratriathlon World Cup on Sunday. Dani Molina and Hector Catala Laparra were both victorious at last weekend’s Worlds, and the Spanish pair are back in action a week later at the fifth World Cup of 2019. Catala Laparra will start as the one to beat in the men’s PTVI after securing victory at the Worlds for the first time – his second win of 2019 following gold at the Milan World Paratriathlon Series in April. Ukraine’s Vasyl Zakrevskyi and France’s Arnaud Grandjean are likely to be Catala Laparra’s closest challengers. Spanish success is guaranteed in the men’s PTS3 with world champion Molina going head-to-head with his compatriot Joaquin Carrasco, a week after claiming back-to-back world titles. Phenomenal Parker The Spanish pair are among six World Championship medallists set to start, including two in the women’s PTWC – newly-crowned world champion Lauren Parker of Australia and Germany’s bronze medallist Christiane Reppe. Parker – who claimed her first world title in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Sunday – has the chance of adding another gold medal to her rapidly increasing international medal haul. But she will face competition from Reppe, who finished third at her debut Worlds. Reppe has already won a World Cup event this year with victory in Magog, Canada, in July, while double world champion Emily Tapp of Australia will be hoping to better her sixth-place finish in Lausanne. Italy’s Alexandre Paviza is the highest ranked triathlete competing in the men’s PTWC; an event which also features Australia’s Nic Beveridge, who won at the season opening World Cup in Devonport, Australia. More home favourites Spain’s Lionel Morales (PTS2), Alejandro Sanchez Palomero (PTS4) and Jairo Ruiz Lopez (PTS5) will all be targeting home success in their respective events, with Sanchez Palomero and Ruiz Lopez finishing third and fourth at Lausanne 2019, respectively. Italy’s Veronica Yoko Plebani has finished fourth in the last two events she has entered. But the Italian will be hopeful for a medal in the women’s PTS2, as will Japan’s Yukako Hata and the USA’s Melissa Stockwell. In the women’s PTS4, a first win of 2019 is the target for Japan’s Mami Tani after Worlds disqualification. Australia’s Sally Pilbeam goes for a second World Cup win of 2019 in the...

Spanish stars headline home Paratriathlon World Cup

Pá, 06/09/2019 - 17:53
After three gold medals at last week’s Paratriathlon World Championships, Spain’s athletes are aiming to continue their success on home soil at the Banyoles Paratriathlon World Cup on Sunday. Dani Molina and Hector Catala Laparra were both victorious at last weekend’s Worlds, and the Spanish pair are back in action a week later at the fifth World Cup of 2019. Catala Laparra will start as the one to beat in the men’s PTVI after securing victory at the Worlds for the first time – his second win of 2019 following gold at the Milan World Paratriathlon Series in April. Ukraine’s Vasyl Zakrevskyi and France’s Arnaud Grandjean are likely to be Catala Laparra’s closest challengers.

ITU Development outlines goals for closer National Federation collaboration and funding

Pá, 06/09/2019 - 15:52
During the occasion of the 2019 Grand Finals, the ITU Development Team gathered National Federations in Lausanne to discuss the next steps for the National Federation Survey, the forthcoming Athlete Education Hub and the routes to apply for Olympic Solidarity funding. Following its pilot in 2017, the results of the 2018 World Triathlon National Federation Survey were collated and shared with the respondents in May of this year. The objective is to better understand the successes and problems that every faces enabling ITU Development to better advise and support them in their long and short-term goals. After a 68% response rate to the pilot, the first official survey saw that figure climb to 83%. The aim is to reach 100% by 2021. “Thomas Bach spoke at Congress of the need for good governance from ITU, and we need to expect that from our National Federations,” said ITU President Marisol Casado. “NFs expect reliability from their athletes, if they are not on time for races there can be no medals. It is only right that we should be able to expect that from our National Federations too.” As part of their subsequent classification categorisation from one to five, a key part of which is the hosting of a National Championships, NFs were reminded that any ITU-sanctioned event can be proposed as such, allowing those without the experience or infrastructure to host an event the opportunity to hit a key target in their development. From a coaches’ and athletes’ perspective, the ITU Education Hub now provides online content for coaches in five languages other than English and; Spanish, with plans for Chinese, French, Arabic and Romanian to be made available. The next KTF-ITU Coaching education programme will be held in November with 72 candidates from 5 continents, while the Athlete’s Hub is in progress and will have the collaboration and input of Vicent Beltran, Francesco Fissore and Emma Carney. 
National Federations were also invited to present their applications for the ASICS World Triathlon Team development funding for the 2020 season from their Continental Confederation by November 1st with formal agreements to be signed at December’s Executive Board meeting in Madrid. The IOC’s Cynthia Amami delivered a keynote speech on the process for applying to the Olympic Solidarity Fund, which has a budget of $509m for the current every Olympic cycle. Amami explained the funds’ goals for helping NOC’s achieve the IOC agenda goals, as well...

Banyoles ready to debut in the World Cup circuit with a start list stacked with top athletes

Pá, 06/09/2019 - 14:50
The iconic small town of Banyoles, in the north of Spain, will be home of the 12th leg of the 2019 ITU World Cup circuit with a glorious debut that will see at least three World Champions toeing the start line. Taking place only a week after the Grand Final in Lausanne last week, start lists are packed with top names, with athletes from 41 countries and more than 20 triathletes in the waiting list, ready for a fantastic Sprint distance race around the lake that has served as home for multiple triathlons over the last years. Men’s Preview You have to go back to 2016 to see three-times World Champion Mario Mola toeing the start line on a World Cup, but the Spaniard will be proudly wearing the number 1 In Banyoles this Saturday, only a week after claiming the second place in the 2019 World Triathlon Series. With a flat but technical bike course like the one they will have to face around the lake, Mola will be looking to the 5km run to show once more that he is always one to be considered when it all comes to fast and furious races. But winning in Banyoles won’t be an easy task for the Spaniard, with some of the fastest runners on the circuit also present here this weekend. Starting by Vincent Luis (FRA), who will make his official debut as World Champion this weekend, on a circuit that also fits him perfectly, and he is willing to repeat the success he had the last time he raced a World Cup, in Sarasota 2018, where he claimed the gold medal also a few days after the Grand Final. Both Mola and Luis, training partners, have been focusing on the World Triathlon Series circuit in the last couple of years, but have decided to finish the season with a thrilling race around the lake that is a regular training base for many triathlon squads. And along with the class and experience of Mola and Luis, some young talents will be trying their luck also in Banyoles, commanded by some of the fastest and more successful athletes in the last few weeks. Canadian Tyler Mislawchuk was not able to cross the finish line in the Grand Final in Lausanne last week, but he proved in the Tokyo Test Event that he is one to beat when it comes to sprint finishes and fast runs. And so does Hayden Wilde (NZL), the young kiwi that not only led his team to claim the Junior/U23 Mixed Relay world title last week, but also finished in the third place in the Tokyo Test Event. They will have to keep an eye on other fast and young athletes like Casper Stornes (NOR), second in the Test Event...
