ITU has also awarded the 2020 ITU Powerman Middle Distance Duathlon World Championships to the city of Viborg, in Denmark.
“Multisports are an integral part of our federation, and we are investing year after year in all these events to give a wider range of triathletes more opportunities to vie for world crowns,” said ITU President and IOC Member Marisol Casado. “We look forward to again partnering with Powerman to provide the highest level of competition possible for duathletes, both in the Long and Middle distance.”
