As the Olympic Games come closer and closer – Paris 2024 will take place next year – the French capital will be the focus of the Paris Test Event starting tomorrow. For triathlon enthusiasts, this means that in the coming days we can enjoy spectacular races over the short – Olympic – distance.
The OIympic Test Event will take place on exactly the same course as next year, so the world’s best short distance athletes can get used to that course now already, which takes them right through the city center of Paris. Of course, tomorrow’s (women) and the day after tomorrow’s (men) race is an opportunity to qualify for the Olympics. Next Sunday, also the Mixed Team Relay race will take place.
We will see several athletes racing, who have previously competed in Challenge Family races around the globe. Many Olympians also grow into the Middle Distance or Long Distance in subsequent years and we will welcome them to our races across the world.
We wish them, as well as everyone else, good luck and all the best at the Olympic Test Event!
