by ITU Admin on 29 Jan, 2008 12:00

The planning and scheduling for the 2008 Lorient BG Triathlon World Cup in France is well under way and appears to be on track for a successful debut in Lorient.  Earlier this week, Gergely Markus, ITU Event Development Director and Technical Delegate for the triathlon competition at the Beijing Olympic Games, conducted a successful site visit with the Lorient Local Organizing Committee (LOC).

During the visit, Markus and the LOC reviewed the technical details of the event including course information, venue facilities and race logistics.  The Lorient BG Triathlon World Cup will be held at the same venue as last years ITU Long Distance Triathlon World Championships, which were hugely successful.

With the experience from the Long Distance World Championships, I think we are on time with the preparations to have a good debut of Lorient in the BG Triathlon World Cup circuit, said Markus, who is also Secretary General of the European Triathlon Union (ETU).  Its important to showcase Lorient as it will be the first World Cup after the Beijing Olympic Games.

While in Lorient, Markus attended a small reception with the Mayor of Lorient, Norbert Metairie, members of the Lorient LOC lead by Eric Le-Lostec and the Federation Francaise de Triathlon (FFTri) represented by Bernard Saint-Jean.  On behalf of ITU, Markus was pleased to present the Mayor with the official book of the 2007 Hamburg BG Triathlon World Championships.
