One month out from the XXXIII World Triathlon Congress, scheduled to take place in Paris but now being held virtually, all candidacies have now been received for the 73 positions being contested including World Triathlon President, Vice-Presidents and Executive Board members, plus places on nine committees and the World Triathlon Tribunal.
World Triathlon elections take place every four years following the usual Olympic cycle, and applications from a total of 166 individuals have been received this year. Incumbent Marisol Casado and Denmark’s Mads Freund will be the only two names on the ballot for the position of World Triathlon President, with voting scheduled to take place at Congress on 29 November.
Europe has the higher number of candidates, with 51 persons running for a position, while another 49 persons will try to represent the American continent either at the Executive Board or on many Committees or Commissions. Asia will have 31 representatives, with Oceania and Africa both having 11 candidates.
