We are sure that everyone is aware of the Hurricane (Wilma) that is headed for the Cancun area of Mexico.
We have been in contact with Jaime Cadaval who handles international affairs for the Mexican Triathlon Federation. He has informed us that the Cancun World Cup Organising Committee has moved to the safety of Mexico City where they will stay until the storm passes.
While hurricanes can suddenly change their directions or decrease in intensity, the next 24 hours is very significant for all areas in the path of this dangerous weather system in the Caribbean.
We will let everyone know about the status of the ITU Cancun World Cup as soon as our Mexican friends are able to assess the damage to the community.
We are all hoping for the best outcome for everyone, and particular the people of Cancun.
