 As well as the individual races, this year mixed relay triathlon will make its debut in Tokyo, providing an extra medal opportunity for the team. The individual races competed over the standard distance (swim 1,500m, bike 40km and run 10km), whilst the mixed relay will see two men and two women complete a short swim (300m), a 6.8km bike leg and a 2km run each one after another, until the fourth athlete crosses the line to finish the race.
