  1. How does the Mixed Relay work?

    Rather than the individual races people are used to seeing in the Triathlon, the Mixed Relay sees both male and female triathletes from the same country compete as a team of four.

    Each member of the team, comprising two men and two women, is required to complete a "mini-triathlon" usually consisting of a 300m swim, 7km bike and 1.5km run course, before tagging their team-mate.

    Introduced by the ITU in 2009 to replace the separate men's and women's relay titles, the Mixed Relay has grown in significance and has featured at both the 2014 and 2018 Commonwealth Games.

    With the event set to make its Olympic debut in 2020, it provides teams with their first chance to earn points towards qualification for the Tokyo Games.

  2. Can Australia be stopped?

    Australia won gold at the 2018 Commonwealth Games

    Defending world champions Australia are expected to field a strong team in Nottingham and enter the race as strong favourites, having taken their first global Mixed Relay gold in Hamburg last July.

    Australia, who also claimed team gold at the Commonwealth Games earlier this year, will face close competition from the USA, who finished as runners-up at last year's World Championships, and race hosts Great Britain.

    Olympic silver and bronze medallists Jonny Brownlee and Vicky Holland have been named in a strong GB squad alongside Commonwealth bronze medallist Marc Austin and former world champion Non Stanford.

    Completing six-athlete team is double Commonwealth champion Jodie Stimpson and Tom Bishop, who helped Great Britain to mixed relay gold at the 2016 European Championships.

    Like running, swimming or cycling? Fancy doing all three, one after the other? If you answered yes to the previous two questions then triathlon is the sport for you!

    The Olympic distances are a 1.5km swim, followed by a 40km cycle, rounded off with a 10km run. But don't feel daunted, it really is for everybody, as 63-year-old Grandma Sue Faulkner proved in 2015!

    The sport has a range of distances and formats to cut your teeth on, and as long as your daily exercise includes all three disciplines, you can call yourself a triathlete with pride.
