I had a chat with a very nice gentleman at British Triathlon recently.
Here is the situation as far as 2012’s ITU Sprint Duathlon World Championships.
1. The ITU has not yet formally said this race will be happening at Nancy (or anywhere else for that matter). And yes I know you have read things to the contrary…
2. Qualifying races for the British Team’s places have been decided. BUT THEY HAVE NOT BEEN PUBLISHED. As soon as the ITU decide we will be made aware of the full process by the BTF.
3. Timescales? This could be next week or March 2012…we don’t know.
Any more info?
All I know is that the qualifiers will NOT CONFLICT with the 3 standard distance qualifiers. ie they will be at separate venues and different dates to the standard events (shown below).
THESE ARE THE STANDARD QUALIFIER DATES/VENUES – Sprints Won’t be any of these!
