ITU long course worlds. What a joke

Recommended Posts

Just watching. Not one Aussie guy or woman in the professionals division. 

Ffs.

Well, there’s no funding at all (not even tri suits when I did it) and probably a bit early for most Aussie long course athletes to head to Europe for extended stay (given you’d probably want to be there a bit before race).

Gomez adds another WC to his palmares. 5:06hrs. 

 

What were the final distances actually set? 1.5/120/30?

5.

If you look at the earlier table that is up on their home page, it has the names/flags correct, and both have 2 Gold, but we have 6 Bronze. The one in the final results that only has 2 x Gold, only has 2 x Bronze.

Since when did NZ have the Australian flag?, 

Is this a way of getting a quality prime minister

Nup. No swim. There'll be a croc sighting in the week leading up to it. They had to cancel the Magnetic Island swim a couple years ago because of one.

Confusion reigns!

New Zealand has the Australian flag

Australia has the Austrian flag

Austria has the New Zealand flag!

 

I missed that extra layer just looking at it on my phone

You don't represent Australia you pay to go and do a triathlon if that is the case.   Be interesting to see the other countries system on selection and representing.

Yep and we should see TA crowing about it soon.

What other sport allows 195 world champions on the same weekend.  

Even the dumb american baseball limits the "World Series" to just one team of 25 with only 9 actually playing.
