100 Days to go: the Paris 2024 Olympic Games

Wednesday 17 April marks exactly 100 days until the opening of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. That means 104 days to the individual men’s triathlon, 105 to the women’s and 110 to the Mixed Relay. The countdowns to the biggest races of the year are well and truly on.

Swim-Bike-Run | 1.5km-40km-10km

The Paris 2024 individual triathlons will be the ultimate athletic test of speed and endurance all wrapped up in the unique pressure pot of the Olympic Games. It is a race that will last nearly two hours, but in which the finest details can be the difference between a medal or disappointment. It is a race that nobody will be able to predict, and nobody will want to miss.

Then there’s the raw speed and team element of only the second ever Olympic Triathlon Mixed Relay to savour: super-sprint swim-bike-run x 4, men out first leg, the women bringing it home on the anchor leg, one of them the gold. Goosebumps guaranteed.

Those dates for the diaries are as follows:

Friday 26 July Opening Ceremony
Tuesday 30 July Men’s individual (8AM local)
Wednesday 31 July Women’s individual (8AM local)
Monday 5 August Mixed Team Relay (8AM local)

Between now and then, World Triathlon will bring you up close and personal to the athletes bidding to win the biggest prizes in the sport and becoming our next Olympic Triathlon Champions.

Launching today, 100 days from the opening ceremony, is the #OlympicTRI hashtag. Following it will bring fans right to the heart of all our Olympic triathlon coverage on social media in the coming months, both from the official World Triathlon channels as well as direct from the athletes chasing qualification and at the Games themselves.

Then, one month out from the Games, World Triathlon will launch the new docu-series Chasing The Dream, in which we go deep with some of the main contenders for Paris 2024, discovering when and where their personal Olympic flames were lit and what has driven them to be among the best in the world at the very toughest of sports.

First up, of course, is the matter of qualification. Only a handful of men and women have met their Federation/NOC criteria to confirm their places in Paris. For the vast majority, the Series and World Cup races between now and WTCS Cagliari are vital.

Watch the Wollongong World Cup this weekend on TriathlonLive.tv, then it is on to Chengdu World Cup, WTCS Yokohama, the Huatulco World Cup and Relay Qualification Event and Samarkand World Cup, before the qualification window closes after WTCS Cagliari.
