Queenslanders on the start line today at the ITU World Championships

Queenslanders on the start line today at the ITU World Championships


Today’s Age Group World Championship race for Sprint and Standard distance will see 237 Australian athletes start in the event.  The Sprint distance will be draft legal and standard distance non-drafting.  Unlike previous championships, the events are held on the same day so athletes have had to choose which event to qualify for and compete in.
Rotterdam is known for unpredictable weather at this time of the year and this weekend has been predictable for the wrong reasons – cold, rainy and a change of a couple of thunderstorms each day.  Certainly not Queensland weather!  The ever popular Parade of Nations was cancelled due to weather.
Standard distance racing starts at 7.30am local time (27 separate wave starts) and Sprint distance begins at 1.35pm local time (20 wave starts).
