Triathlon World Championships 2013 – Preview and Predictions

London Grand Final triathlon – Preview and Predictions

Triathlon World Championships 2013

An estimated 8,500 people will be battling on the iconic course that was one of the most memorable events at the 2012 London Olympics.

As the triathlon season comes to an end, Hyde Park will be a culmination of all the mental and physical preparation that the world’s top triathletes have dedicated their season to. 4,000 overseas athletes representing 83 nations will travel to London to compete against 1,200 Brits as part of the Triathlon World Championships. They will be joined by a raft of athletes, some of who have never done a triathlon before, competing in a mass participation race on Saturday 14, September.

Have you ran the Hyde Park course before? Were you there to watch last year?

For anyone competing or interested in experiencing the course, I invite you to watch this “athlete-eye level” preview of the swim, bike and run courses I recorded prior to the Olympics last year:

It is still extremely close in the rankings: Olympic gold medallist Alistair Brownlee and his younger brother Jonathan (the reigning World Champion) will be racing for the Elite Men’s title. However, Javier Gomez, (Spain) Mario Mola (Spain) Richard Murray (South Africa) and Joao Silva (Portugal) are sure to put up a valiant effort. In the women’s elite event: Anne Haug (Germany), Jodie Stimpson (UK), Gwen Jorgensen (USA) and Non Stanford (UK) will battle it out to take the title.

Who do you think will take the title? My predictions are:

1. Alistar Brownlee 2. Jonny Brownlee 3. Javier Gomez
1. Gwen Jorgensen 2. Anne Haug 3. Non Stanford

It’s hard to bet against those top three men as an upset has been very rare in the men’s races in the last few years. The women’s race is slightly more open but I’m going with those who have been competing very well in the last six weeks. Call me boring yet I’m sure the races will be anything but.
