ITU releases website dedicated to Olympic Games

With exactly 200 days to go until the triathlon competition at the London Olympic Games, the International Triathlon Union (ITU) today launched its official Olympic website: triathlon.org/olympics.  The site will keep fans and media abreast of all the latest news and developments with the triathlon competition at the Olympics, including a breakdown of the complex qualification process.

“Triathlon enters its fourth Olympic Games in what is undeniably an exciting sports year as London takes centre stage this summer and we can already see the high demand and appetite for Olympic information and news,” said Marisol Casado, ITU President and IOC Member.  “We expect triathlon to be one of the most popular and marquee sports of the London Olympics.”

The website includes a course map of the triathlon competition, plus a list of all the live sites in the UK, as well as race reviews and photo galleries from the triathlons at Sydney 2000, Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008.  The site will also gather the names that will make up the Olympic start lists as National Olympic Committees (NOCs) officially confirm their athletes that will compete in London.

The women’s triathlon in the London Olympic Games will take place at 9am on Saturday 4 August while the men’s race will go at 11:30am on Tuesday 7 August.  ITU’s Olympic qualification period concludes with the ITU World Triathlon Madrid on May 26-27.
