Make sure to tune into live video coverage from Ishigaki next weekend. The second stop of the 2007 BG Triathlon world cup series takes athletes and fans to the unique harbour side course of Ishigaki, Japan.
World class athletes including world number ones, Brad Kahlefeldt and Emma Snowsill will gather in the small fishing island of Ishigaki on April 15 to stake their claim on the $100,000 prize pool and valuable Olympic qualification points. Vanessa Fernandes of Portugal will be out to revenge her defeat last week by Emma Snowsill, a defeat that ended a 12 run winning streak by the 21 year old Fernandes. While in its eleventh year as an ITU World Cup, the Ishigaki triathlon has been running for the past 17 years.
