ITU, PATCO and the Mexican Triathlon Federation recently organised a Level 2 Technical Officials and Event Organisers seminar alongside the ITU Cancun World Cup. A total of 13 officials from seven PATCO countries, in addition to three observers from different countries, attended the classroom sessions.
ITU Technical Committee Chair Enrique Quesada, as well as ITU Anti-Doping Director Leslie Buchanan facilitated the two-day course prior to the elite and Age-Group races.
The seminar offered theoretical sessions that reviewed the ITU handbook, as well as discussed technical official race case scenarios.
At the conclusion of the session, participants were offered the opportunity to hone their practical skills by officiating the World Cup.
