Duathlon World’s kick off the 2017 Penticton Multisport World Championships Festival

Great Britain’s Emma Pallant seeks a third consecutive ITU Duathlon World Championship title in Canada

Penticton, Canada will for the first time host the ITU Multisport World Championship Festival, taking place from 18 to 27 August. This new initiative will see the ITU World Championships for Aquathlon, Cross Triathlon, Duathlon, Long Distance Triathlon and Aqua Bike take place at one venue. The first events take place this Saturday, where the ITU Duathlon World Championships will get the racing underway.

Headlining from a British perspective will be Emma Pallant. The World Champion in 2015 (Adelaide, Australia) and 2016 (Aviles, Spain), she will certainly start as the favourite to make it three in a row. Sandra Levenez (FRA), the reigning European Champion and 2014 World Champion will be among those looking to prevent the run of British success at this championship.

For the Elite Men, Spain’s Emilo Martin, the Silver medal winner last year and also the current European Champion will perhaps be the man that the British entry of Philip Wylie, Mark Buckingham and Luke Pollard will be targeting.

The travelling British Age-Group team will be racing over both the Sprint and Standard Distances. In Aviles last year, the team won 24 medals (9 Gold) in the Sprint, and 25 medals (10 Gold) over the Standard Distance. A longer trip across the Atlantic Ocean means a smaller team than made the short trip to Spain last year, but the Brits will still be present in both quality and quantity.

The fastest British athletes over the Standard Distance last year were Gill Fullen (50-54) and Lee Piercy (40-44). Both return to attempt to add further silverware to their already extensive medal collections earned in Great Britain colours.
