WTS Nottingham & WTS Leeds By the Numbers

On June 7, 18 nations from across the globe lined up in teams of four with two men and two women to compete in the very first Triathlon Team Mixed Relay Series in Nottingham, Great Britain. Then just three days later, the elites travelled 115 kilometres north to Leeds, where 57 men and 51 women also toed a start line to race in the fourth stop of the 2018 World Triathlon Series.

In all three races, while champions were crowned and victories won, there were athletes who came out on top, despite either making it onto the podium or not. So, we want to honour the best of the best in triathlon, but also in the journey it takes to get there - the swim, bike and run. Here are the top split times and other fun statistic facts for each discipline from the Team Relay WTS Nottingham and WTS Leeds events.
