ITU regrets to announce the death of Sweden’s Sture Jonasson, ITU’s first Secretary General. He passed away before Christmas, at the age of 70.
A dedicated administrator of the sport, Sture dedicated countless hours to the development of the sport and the foundation of the International Triathlon Union.
He will be missed by so many around the world. Our thoughts go to Sture’s family and friends at this difficult time.
