T100 athletes get ready for the heat at the Singapore T100

Everything is ready for the second stop on the new eight-leg T100 Triathlon World Tour: Singapore. Defending women’s champion Ashleigh Gentle, double Olympic champion Alistair Brownlee, reigning Ironman World Champion Lucy Charles-Barclay or winner in T100 Miami Magnus Ditlev are ready to put up a show in the Singapore heat.

Women’s race
Toeing the start line on Saturday will be Miami T100 champion India Lee, who will be looking to pick up where she left off in Florida at the Homestead-Miami Speedway, where she ran down fellow Brit and reigning Ironman World Champion Lucy Charles-Barclay to clinch her maiden T100 win. By her own admission, India had expected “nothing” going into the season opener in Miami other than to “see how her winter had gone, with no pressure”.

It turns out her winter had gone ‘pretty well’ and has catapulted the British star into the PTO World Top Ten for the first time. She will get an immediate chance to put that newfound confidence to the test against a strong field in Singapore that features 7 of the world’s top 20 athletes including #2 Australian Ashleigh Gentle, who’s making her T100 debut after winning the inaugural PTO Asian Open in Singapore in 2023, and #3 Lucy Charles-Barclay, who is putting all of her focus into the T100 Tour in 2024 as well as Chelsea Sodarao of the USA, the 2022 Ironman World Champion.

The full line up for the Singapore T100 can be found here. It features 8 of the 20 contracted T100 athletes and 12 wildcards – including America’s Haley Chura and Estonia’s Kaidi Kivioja who finished a very creditable 7th and 10th respectively in Miami. The wildcard contingent also features the powerful Aussie trio of Ellie Salthouse, Radka Kahlefeldt and Rebecca Clarke – adding to the fresh faces looking for a chance to prove themselves at the sport’s highest level in Singapore’s infamous heat and humidity.

Men’s race
The men’s race features 15 of the world’s top 20 PTO Ranked athletes and will continue many of the battles started in Miami. #2 Magnus Ditlev put in a commanding performance to win the first race of the season in Miami, but it will not be easy for him to repeat the victory after a crash a few days ago in Singapore. The field will also feature American #3 Jason West, who’ll be looking to improve on his seventh place in Florida, and fellow American and the new #5 Sam Long, who’ll be bursting with confidence after biking and running through the field to go from the last swim pack to second on the podium and only 35 seconds down on Ditlev.

Flying Dutchman Youri Keulen gets another T100 wildcard, following his impressive fourth at the Homestead-Miami Speedway, and double Olympic champion from Great Britain Alistair Brownlee – who led for long periods in the Miami heat but ultimately ran out of gas on the run – goes again after having taken heart from his first outing of the season.

The full line up for the Singapore T100 can be found here. It features 16 of the 20 contracted T100 athletes and 4 wildcards.

The women’s Singapore T100 race takes place on Saturday 13 April. The race starts 14:15 (local time). The men’s Singapore T100 race takes place on Sunday 14 April, at 15:15 local time and you can watch both races on TriathlonLIVE (georestrictions might apply)
