Why have some athletes pre-qualified from 2021 Championships when the Championships were cancelled or the GB teams couldn't travel?

2021 was an extra-ordinary year. Some World or European Championship races went ahead, some were cancelled and soe were re-arranged. British Triathlon took the decision to allow athletes to move their team place to 2022 after 10 weeks out from the date of the event and if there were certain travel restrictions in place. Were races were cancelled qualifications were also rolled over to 2022.

The decision was also made to offer qualified athletes in the 2022 World Standard Triathlon Team the chance to move their place to the 2023 equivalent race due to the human rights record of the UAE. This was open to athletes across all 3 teams and athletes needed to contact the age group team at British Triathlon before the 5th November 2021. This is the first time this option has been available and is not a guarantee of it happening in the future.
