In just a few days, triathletes from around the world will gather in Budapest Hungary for the Dextro Energy ITU World Championship Grand Finale. In a Twitter post, I posted a link to the USA Triathlon press release noting that Team USA is sending more than 400 of the nation’s fastest athletes to compete in sprint and Olympic distance non-drafting triathlon; aquathlon; paratriathlon; and junior, U-23 and elite draft-legal World Championship events. Check this list to see if anyone you know is racing next weekend.
On the official site for the Grand Finale you can see inspiring video showcasing clips from races around the world. In addition to a full schedule of racing, the international governing body for triathlon gathers for the annual congress meeting and various committee meetings. I was elected to the Constitution Committee a few years back and will attend the related meetings.
Of course it’s always fun to stay and watch all of the world-class racing too – best wishes to all racers.
I see from the weather predictions that I need to pack rain gear. It’s looking like high 60s, low 70s and rain for some of the days.
