USA triathlete Sharon Byun aims for fourth Age-Group World Championships in 2020

17 hodin 57 min zpět
Sharon Byun represents USA as an age-group World Triathlete (50-54), as well as being an obstetrician-gynecologist at the University of Florida. Sharon considers her day job to be “work triathlon”, delivering babies, operating and seeing patients in the office. Sharon has represented Team USA at consecutive ITU World Triathlon Grand Finals in Rotterdam (2017), Gold Coast (2018), Lausanne (2019) and has qualified to compete, in the age-group division, at the World Championships in Edmonton, Canada, in 2020. In 2012, at 43-years of age, she competed her first triathlon. “I was 43 when I competed in my first triathlon.  It was a local sprint distance race, and I had no expectations other than to have a good time. I never imagined I would come to love triathlon as much as I do.” In 2019, at the World Championships on the Gold Coast (Australia), Byun compared representing at the ITU Grand Final to competing in the Olympic Games for an age-group athlete. “The Grand Final is as close to feeling like you are competing in the Olympic Games for Age-Groupers. I think it is pretty easy to be motivated for this event!” Hear from Byun on what races the age-group triathlete from USA will line-up for in 2020, as well as reflecting on the triathlon lifestyle in her own way. How has your journey with triathlon progressed since 2018 ITU Gold Coast Grand Final? I competed in the 2019 ITU Lausanne Grand Final age group F 50-54. 2019 was particularly special because we celebrated the 30th anniversary of Team USA and of course celebrated Katie Zaferes claiming the 2019 ITU World Championship win! I also qualified for Team USA for 2020 Edmonton Grand Final by finishing 4th in my age group in the Draft Legal Championships in Tempe, AZ in November. It will be my fourth consecutive ITU Grand Final as a Team USA member and I would be honored to have the opportunity to continue to represent Team USA as long as my body allows! Other than racing at the ITU Grand Final, one of the highlights of last season was definitely competing at the iconic Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon in San Francisco and placing 2nd for F50-54. There is really nothing quite like jumping off a ferry into the chilly (approximately 54 F/12 C) San Francisco Bay! It truly is a one of a kind race and a bucket list for many around the world. Getting my finisher medal from Andy Potts was an added bonus. It was an unseasonably hot day (there was actually a heat advisory warning for the Bay Area) and it...

2020 ITU Osaka race will be an Asian Cup

Út, 21/01/2020 - 15:10
The International Triathlon Union, in accordance with the Asian Triathlon Confederation and the Japanese Triathlon Union, has decided that the Osaka ITU event in 2020, that had been previously announced as a World Cup, will be finally a Continental Cup. The 2020 Osaka NTT ASTC Triathlon Asian Cup will be competed on May 23. After numerous conversations with the organisers, they have decided, with the full support of both ITU and ASTC, to have an Asian Cup in 2020, and try to work with local sponsors and partners to include the Japanese city back in the World Cup circuit in 2021. With this change, the ITU World Cup for 2020 will include 15 events, starting the season in Mooloolaba (Australia) in March to finish it in Miyazaki (Japan) late October. As last year, the world’s home for on-demand multisports streaming, TriathlonLIVE.tv, will continue to bring the best of the action of all World Cups to desktops, tablets and smartphones. The new-look channel, brought to you by Texaco, will offer once more to all subscribers all the races live and on-demand, as well as countless hours of extra content, exclusive interviews, behind the scenes videos and stacks more triathlon coverage! The Triathlon World Cup competitions are the second tier events for ITU, intended to provide a solid and professional base for Triathletes pursuing entry to the World Triathlon Series. This year, and until May 31, the races also will provide very valuable points for the Olympic Qualification Rankings. Those events are also aligned with ITU Development programmes, carry a prize purse, and have significant global media, television and internet coverage, making it attractive for tourist locations and major cities.

Ai Ueda, new member of the ITU Executive Board

Po, 20/01/2020 - 14:07
The International Triathlon Union is pleased to announce that Japanese athlete Ai Ueda, member of the Athlete’s Committee, has been appointed member of the Executive Board as the second representative of the Athletes collective. ITU implements with this decision its support for increasing the female presence in the government body of the organization, giving also the Athletes more voice as well as more voting rights when it comes to approving decisions. Following the decision taken by the Executive Board in 2019 of adding a second representative of the Athletes Committee in the Executive Board, Ueda was selected by her fellow Committee members as the new Board representative. She started her Board duties in January 2020. Ueda is an active elite athlete, as is also the other Athlete representative in the Executive Board, Tamas Toth. Ueda, who has the record of the ITU athletes with more races on her legs -200 last year in Santo Domingo World Cup, will combine her presence in the Executive Board with her training and racing, while she is trying to qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Podium sweep for Russia in the debut of the Winter Triathlon World Cups

So, 04/01/2020 - 19:23
A standout dominance for Russian triathletes has given them a full podium sweep, both in the male and female races, in the debut of the ITU Winter Triathlon World Cups, hosted this weekend in the Chinese winter resort of Harbin. With freezing temperatures, and with all three segments running over the frozen river, victory was for the best winter triathlete of the moment and six-times World Champion Pavel Andreev (RUS), while his teammate Daria Rogozina, still a U23 athlete, was the first female crossing the finish line. The ITU Harbin Winter Triathlon World Cup, organised by the Chinese Triathlon Federation, offered magnificent conditions to all participants, with a circuit consisting on a 6.88 km run (2 laps), followed by a 12.5 km bike course in just one lap and three laps in the cross country ski course to cover 10.32 km, and with the air temperature on 16C below zero. 23 men toed the start line for kicking off the winter triathlon season and it was Dmitriy Bregeda (RUS) who set up the pace from the start of the run, stablishing almost a minute difference with the group of chasers, that included some well-known names in the winter triathlon world, like Andreev, Daniel Antonioli (ITA), Pavel Yakimov (RUS) and Pello Osoro (ESP). But it was during the tough bike circuit when another Russian, Evgenii Evgrafov, gave a master class on how to ride a bike over the snow. He managed to finish the segment two minutes ahead of the chasing group, the other three Russians, with only Giuseppe Lamastra (ITA) and Osoro keeping up with the pace. But it was in the last transition when the Russians showed that they are ahead of everyone else when it comes to putting the skis on, even in transition, which they did almost 15 seconds faster than the rest of the field. Andreev, who had managed to keep the leaders under control and waited until he had the skis on, just pushed incredibly hard until the end, crossing the finish line in the first place to claim his first victory of the season. Behind him, Evgrafov and Yakimov completed the first podium sweep for Russia this season, with their teammates Bregeda and Denis Kabanen (RUS) following them in 4th and 5th place. Antonioli, Lamastra and Osoro, in that order, closed the top eight places. In the women’s race, it was also a Russian display of power in the snow, with the current World Champion, Daria Rogozina, and her two teammates Yulia Surikova and Svetlana Sokolova (RUS) imposing from the first meters of the run a...

Paratriathlon - what you need to know ahead of Tokyo

St, 01/01/2020 - 12:39
At the Paratriathlon events of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, all competitors from different sport classes must compete over a course of 750m of swimming, 20km of cycling and 5km of running for athletes with different types of impairment. Ahead of the racing - on the mornings of Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 August - why not get to know a little more about the events, athletes and classification..? Sport Class Explanation The Olympic Paratriathlon qualifying system was reformatted for Tokyo to allow for classing-up in certain cases to potentially allow more athletes the opportunity to qualify. The Tokyo 2020 medal events are as follows:  PTWC in both genders: comprising both classes PTWC1 and PTWC2 sport classes;  PTVI in both genders: comprising PTVI1, PTVI2 and PTVI3 sport classes;  Men’s PTS4: also including athletes from the PTS2 and PTS3 sport classes;  Men’s PTS5: including only athletes from the sport class PTS5;  Women’s PTS2: including only athletes from the sport class PTS2;  Women’s PTS5: also including athletes from the PTS3 and PTS4 sport classes. The basic definitions for each of the classes in paratriathlon are as follows: PTWC - Wheelchair users. Athletes must use a recumbent handcycle on the bike course and a racing wheelchair on the run segment. PTS2 - Severe impairments. In both bike and run segments, amputee athletes may use approved prosthesis or other supportive devices. PTS3 - Significant impairments. In both bike and run segments, amputee athletes may use approved prosthesis or other supportive devices. PTS4 - Moderate impairments. In both bike and run segments, amputee athletes may use approved prosthesis or other supportive devices. PTS5 - Mild impairments. In both bike and run segments, amputee athletes may use approved prosthesis or other supportive devices. PTVI - Includes athletes who are partially sighted to totally blind. Must ride a tandem during the bike segment. One guide of the same nationality and gender is mandatory throughout the race. Important rules There are some particularities in paratriathlon, as athletes with varying levels of impairment need different support levels when exiting the water and before reaching the transition area. There are swim-exit assistants who may assist the athletes upon swim exit depending on the swim cap colour, providing full lifting (red swim cap) or support assistance (yellow swim cap). There is a designated pre-transition area for athletes to...

ITU Photographer’s Best of 2019 Gallery: Tommy Zaferes

Pá, 27/12/2019 - 21:41
Tommy Zaferes (pronounced zah-fear-es) just finished his third full season as part of the ITU Media Team. Zaferes swam at the USA Olympic trials in 2008, took a year leave from sport, and began his ITU career in 2010. While he still travels and trains full time with his wife, WTS star Katie Zaferes (and occasionally races himself), his main focus has shifted into the sports photography and content creation world. In 2017 Zaferes spent his first season “interning” with the other ITU photographers, and helping to provide athletes with content to showcase themselves (and triathlon) to the world. Zaferes explains his style as “story telling”. He enjoys the challenge of capturing an individual image, from a unique perspective, that makes the viewer feel like they’re are experiencing the moment in real life. And also the challenge of getting an image that no one else could get. Here is a collection of 10 photos that Zaferes has selected to showcase from the 2019 season. Enjoy the gallery and make sure to see his past, present and future work shared on the @worldtriathlon social media channels and follow Zaferes on Instagram and twitter @TZaferes.

ITU Photographer’s Best of 2019 Gallery: Wagner Araujo

Pá, 20/12/2019 - 06:30
I’m Wagner Araujo, most known as Wags, the Brazilian lens of ITU. I’ve been involved with Triathlon for more than 15 years. First as an athlete (I’m still racing as an age grouper) and later as a photographer (10 years from now) Since 2013 I have the opportunity to cover ITU World Cups. From 2015 on I’ve started covering the main events like the Rio Olympic Test Event and WTS races. It was a long season in 2019 with many World Cups and the WTS events around the globe. Luckily, we have a team of wonderful photographers who managed to cover all those races: Delly Carr (my great mentor in my career), Janos Schmidt, Ben Lumley and Tommy Zaferes. As photojournalists we always seek for a clean, meaningful and powerful images that can translate reality in its core. In order to achieve that we usually shoot details, close ups, wide angle, POV and panning shots. My collection from 2019 is pretty much a synthesis of how diverse the photojournalist’s work can be. I’m very happy to share them with you:

IOC increases the quota of triathletes to 80 for the Dakar 2022 YOG

Čt, 19/12/2019 - 12:06
ITU is pleased to announce that the Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee has approved a 25% increase in the number of triathletes that will be competing in the fourth edition of the Youth Olympic Games, that will take place in Dakar, Senegal, in 2022. The programme for the YOG, for the debut of the Youth Games in the African continent, will include individual male and female races, as well as a 2x2 Mixed Relay. The number of triathletes that will compete at the next Youth Olympic Games is now set at 80 athletes, 40 boys and 40 girls aged between 16 and 17 that will compete in the individual races. All the National Federations that will qualify one male and one female athlete will then participate at the 2x2 Mixed Relay event. 64 athletes competed at the first three editions of the Games in Singapore, Nanjing and Buenos Aires. The individual events will be hosted in Saly, Dakar, over a super-sprint distance, with semifinals on the first day of the triathlon competition, and the Final A and Final B two days later. Since the start of the Games in 2010, the triathlon programme has featured a mixed-nation mixed-relay event. In the previous editions of the Youth Games, the teams were made with four athletes -two male and two female- from different countries, but all from the same continent, with the teams being formed according to their individual results. For the 2022 Dakar Youth Games, the format will be changed to a 2x2 Mixed Relay, in which two athletes from the same country -one girl and one boy-  will do a super sprint triathlon, each one of them doing it twice. This format, which has been used also in the ANOC Beach Games in Doha, or the Winter Triathlon World Championships, allows a greater number of teams, with both athletes being from the same nationality. And it will be a great opportunity to enjoy another fast and furious race at the Olympics, after the Mixed Relay will make its official debut in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics this summer.

The number of triathletes that will compete at the next Youth Olympic Games is now set at 80 athletes, 40 boys and 40 girls aged between 16 and 17 that will compete in the individual races. All the National Federations that will qualify one male and one female athlete will then participate at the 2x2 Mixed Relay event. 64 athletes competed at the first three editions of the Games in Singapore, Nanjing and Buenos Aires. The individual events will be hosted in Saly, Dakar, over a super-sprint distance, with semifinals on the first day of the triathlon competition, and the Final A and Final B two days later. Since the start of the Games in 2010, the triathlon programme has featured a mixed-nation mixed-relay event. In the previous editions of the Youth Games, the teams were made with four athletes -two male and two female- from different countries, but all from the same continent, with the teams being formed according to their individual results. For the 2022 Dakar Youth Games, the format will be changed to a 2x2 Mixed Relay, in which two athletes from the same country -one girl and one boy-  will do a super sprint triathlon, each one of them doing it twice. This format, which has been used also in the ANOC Beach Games in Doha, or the Winter Triathlon World Championships, allows a greater number of teams, with both athletes being from the same nationality. And it will be a great opportunity to enjoy another fast and furious race at the Olympics, after the Mixed Relay will make its official debut in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics this summer.

ITU welcomes applications for the 2020 ASICS World Triathlon Team

Čt, 19/12/2019 - 10:41
ITU’s expansive development partnership with high-performance sports equipment giant ASICS enters its third season this year, ready to build on the performances and progress of 2019 but most of all, prepare some athletes for the upcoming Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020. The ASICS World Triathlon Team project provides essential support, resources and expertise to emerging National Federations’ young athletes with the potential to compete at a World Cup level but with the goal set in the Olympic participation, as well as identifying and nurturing junior athletes just starting out on their triathlon journeys to Olympic qualification for Paris 2024 and beyond, but would struggle to find that support at home. At the same time, another goal of the project is to increase the number of coaches from emerging or developing Nations so that they can gain experience in the preparation and support of athletes competing at World Cup level. Applications for athletes with the athletes with the potential to qualify and compete at Tokyo 2020 Olympics that have already proven themselves at an ITU Elite, U23, Junior World Championship, World Cup or Continental Championships/Cup level will be favoured. This year, three World Cup events have been named as the ASICS World Triathlon Team events in 2020 prior to the Cut-Off Date (11 May 2020) of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games Qualification Period.The selected World Cups will be Brazilia (Brazil), on April 4-5; Valencia (Spain), on May 2nd and Chengdu (China), on May 10th. In order to apply, athletes must have been born in 1990 or later, and have at least two results finishing in the first 66% from Continental Cup events in the past 12 months. A National Federation may nominate no more than two male and two female athletes. All athletes selected will be provided with a travel stipend, accommodation, food and the support of world-class coaching, physio and bike mechanics. And as happened last year, coaches from developing triathlon nations are also invited to apply, with one place available for each project. Click here to download the application form
