Time : Men’s Start – 7.10am, Women’s Start – 7.30am
This year’s Singapore International Triathlon 2017 will see Singapore’s top triathletes competing against one another in the National Championships category. Every triathlete will be racing hard to be crowned national champions, with ITU points given to the top 5 triathletes. With this being a sprint distance race instead of the olympic standard distance, it is going to be a very exciting Sunday with the juniors pitting against the seniors in the familiar settings of East Coast Park, you will see the battle between the bests!
While Christy Suriadi, Bryce Chong and Nicholas Rachmadi have already been selected for the XXI Commonwealth Games, this National Championships will need to find 3 more triathletes for TAS nominations to SNOC to fill up the remaining 1 men and 2 women slots. Look out for bronze medallist Clement Chow and Wille Loo who finished a close 4th behind Clement in the recent SEA Games, also not forgetting Zac Low, a confirmed contender in the 2018 Asian Games. These 3 will be putting up their best for this 1 slot. Winona Howe’s withdrawal from this race due to an unfortunate injury has kept the options open with Phoebe Kee and Ethel Lin amongst the favourites now fighting for the 2 women nomination spots.
Will we see the favourites dominating again this Sunday or will we see surprises? With elite starts comprising of 13 men and 5 women, this category will be the highlights of Sunday morning.
Men Start – 7.10AM
