Jianguo Wang, Secretary General of the Chinese Triathlon Sports Association regrets to inform the ITU family that the 2005 Tiantai ITU Asian Continental Cup Triathlon scheduled on Oct.30, 2005 has been cancelled.
The event was planned to take place in Xiamen originally, and was changed to Tiantai due to the withdrawal of the host city Xiamen.
Unfortunately, the new host city Tiantai, which is located in southern China was seriously affected by the typhoon. We have been informed that the water and road where our triathlon was to take place had been damaged and polluted, and can not meet the requirements of the race.
For this reason the event has been cancelled.
We apologize for this situation and any inconveniences caused.
