Abu Dhabi to host the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final

Abu Dhabi Sports Council has been successful in its bid to host the 2022 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final, further bolstering the capital’s global status in the triathlon world. 

It is expected that the five-day event will draw more than 5,000 international triathletes as well as some 2,500 local triathletes.

The Grand Final is the pinnacle of the global triathlon season, with World Champions being named across both the elite and amateur categories.

HE Aref Al Awani, general secretary of Abu Dhabi Sports Council said: “Our world-class facilities and other headline events such as the world famous Formula 1 Grand Prix and the award-winning Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship provide us with great opportunities to promote sport more widely in the UAE and showcase Abu Dhabi to the watching world.

“Hosting the Grand Final for the very first time will continue that legacy and we will be able to showcase the achievements of the many world-class athletes set to participate, as well as inspiring future generations to get involved.”

The capital has hosted the last four editions of the ITU World Triathlon. The sold-out 2018 event was held at Yas Island and saw 2,500 amateur triathletes from 92 different nationalities take part.

It has also become the most inclusive triathlon in the region, with dedicated races introduced for para triathletes and Special Olympic triathletes.

The race circuit will take centre stage once again from March 8 to 9 as the capital hosts the 2019 edition of the ITU World Triathlon.

Registration for the race is now open at www.abudhabi.triathlon.org. Mar 8-9 2019. Yas Island www.abudhabi.triathlon.org.
