Triathletes given the opportunity to race at the 2012 Olympic venue!
London will be the sixth of seven stop-overs for the World Championship Series which began in Korea and finishes with the Grand Final in Australia in September. Each event features an elite men’s and women’s race as well as an Age Group race. The event in London also hosts Paratriathlon races, the British Youth and Junior Championships and an expo - an international trade fair.
