As of 2009, the World Champions are no longer selected in a single event - but through a points system during eight events throughout the season. New standards will be set in triathlon sports with very attractive venues in the centre of the world’s most famous cities, a guaranteed world wide TV presence and prize money for the whole series total US$ 2 million.
The ITU World Triathlon Series will once again showcase eight first-class triathlon events in 2018, starting off in Abu Dhabi, followed by Bermuda, Yokohama, Leeds, Hamburg, Edmonton, Montreal, and finally culminating with the World Triathlon Grand Final in Gold Coast, TAustralia. The HAMBURG WASSER World Triathlon will also feature the world’s best triathletes, with the likes of 2017 world champions Flora Duffy and Mario Mola having competed in Hamburg on several occasions previously. The event is again expected to attract an impressive list of international triathletes for both the elite races, as well as the ITU Mixed Relay Triathlon World Championships.
