So you’re going to the Lausanne ITU Triathlon World Championships but you cannot afford the airfare for all your family and friends to join you? Don’t worry. This year for the first time, ITU will have exclusive live coverage of not only the elite races but also the age group world championships.
We will be broadcasting live video from the finish line so all your friends and family have a chance to watch you cross the finish line for the biggest moment in your triathlon year.
Not only that, but we will also have live timing throughout the race so everybody at home can track your progress at world championships. Times will be live and in real time, so as you cross that finish line, your friends and family members will know how you did before you can get a chance to call them to boast about your time!
