Brits head to Daytona for PTO Championships


Taking place entirely within the race circuit in Daytona, the event on Sunday will welcome some of the top triathletes from around the world to battle it out for the PTO 2020 Championship.

Athletes from both long and short course backgrounds will compete across a 2km swim, 80km bike and 18km run as the women’s and men’s pro races bring to a close Challenge Daytona where age group athletes will have had the chance to compete over a mix of distances throughout the weekend.

Among the ten British women to be taking to the course will be winner of IRONMAN Florida in November, Katrina Matthews; paratriathlon guide and silver medallist in the pro races at Outlaw X and Helvellyn this year, Nikki Bartlett; and double Commonwealth gold medallist, Jodie Stimpson.

Two-time Olympic gold medallist, Alistair Brownlee; former World Triathlon world champion and double Olympic medallist, Jonathan Brownlee; and winner of Outlaw X 2020, George Goodwin will race alongside four other British men, as seventeen athletes from Great Britain compete in the two pro races.

As well as the Brits, the field will boast international athletes including 2019 IRONMAN World Champion, Anne Haug and London 2012 gold medallist, Nicola Spirig; four-time World Triathlon world champion, Javier Gomez and current double world champion, Vincent Luis.

The total prize purse is over $1m for the PTO Championships, with the two winners claiming the top prizes of $100,000 each.
