The ITU Photo of the Year is an ongoing series on the 2010 Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Series. Working our way through the Series each week, readers have the opportunity to vote for their choice of the Best Event Photo. Once the seven best images have been chosen, this photographic series will culminate in a final vote to decide the ITU Photo of the Year. In addition to the contest, readers will get the chance to hear from each event photographer about their favourite image from the event, published in a brief excerpt at the end of each week. Be sure to tune in each week to follow the series and vote for your favourite image!
This edition of the ITU Photo of the Year series takes us to the third stop on the 2010 Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Series. This is the eighth consecutive year Madrid, the Spanish capital has hosted an ITU event in Casa de Campo Park.
The women’s field in Madrid also saw the return of 2007 World Champion Vanessa Fernandes of Portugal. The once invincible Fernandes—who owns the most World Cup wins in ITU history—has been plagued by injury since early 2009 and sat out most of last season. Up until last year, no other woman had ever won on the Madrid course.
