  1. Everything you need to know

    The World Triathlon Championship Series is a fantastic opportunity to see the very best in the sport, including Olympic, World and European champions.

    Following a one-off World Championship in Hamburg in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, the World Triathlon Championship Series returns with a full calendar of events for 2021.

    This year’s series began in the Japanese city of Yokohama on 15 May and culminates in the Championship Finals in Edmonton, Canada on 21-22 August.

    Each race of the series leading up to the Finals in Edmonton - plus the summer Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan this summer - will award up to 1000 ranking points.

    Points from the second half of the year’s re-scheduled Bermuda and Abu Dhabi events will all count towards the 2022 rankings.

    Four thousand spectators will be allowed into Roundhay Park in Leeds, for round two, to watch the event on a ticket-basis entry.

    Aside from pride and prize money, Olympic qualification is likely to be the goal for many of the participants. GB currently have four of their Olympic team - Jonny Brownlee, Vicky Holland, Georgia Taylor-Brown and Jess Learmonth.

  2. Meet the seven GB women in action...

    Non Stanford

    Non Stanford: Non was the World Series champion in 2013 and finished fourth at Rio 2016.

    Jess Learmouth: Jess won a European title in 2017, a Commonwealth silver in both Mixed Relay and the women's race in 2018, as well as multiple World Triathlon Series medals including silver at the 2019 Grand Final Lausanne.

    Sophie Coldwell: Sophie has represented Team England at the Commonwealth Games and achieved several medal-winning performances in World and European Championships.

    Beth Potter: Beth was a long-distance runner, competing in the 10,000m at Rio 2016, before transitioning to Triathlon. She won the Super League Triathlon Arena Games event in London earlier in 2021, and recently did a 5k in 14:41.

    Lucy Charles-Barclay: Lucy specialises in Ironman distances usually, taking silver in the 2017, 2018 and 2019 World Championships. Apparently she is keen to push for a Tokyo Triathlon spot, though.

    Olivia Mathias: Olivia represented Wales at the 2018 Commonwealth Games and secured silver medals - in the individual and mixed relay - at the 2019 U23 World Championships.

    Sian Rainsley: Sian began triathlon at the age of just seven and has won medals at European junior and U23 level, including winning silver at the 2014 Youth Olympic Games.

  3. Meet the seven GB men in action...

    Alistair Brownlee

    Alistair Brownlee: Alistair is the only triathlete to win two Olympics gold medals - at London 2012 and Rio 2016. He has won the World Series twice (2009 & 2011) but has recently been stepping up to Ironman distances.

    Jonny Brownlee: The younger of the Brownlee brothers, Jonny won bronze at London 2012 before taking silver at Rio 2016. He won the World Series in 2012, and came second in 2013 and 2016.

    Alex Yee: Alex is one of the up-and-coming talents in Triathlon with his World Series best being a silver medal in Abu Dhabi in 2019. He has developed a habit of running a sub 14-min 5k so will be one to watch during the running leg.

    Tom Bishop: Tom was part of England's Commonwealth's team in 2018 and has one silver medal in World Series races (in Abu Dhabi in 2017).

    Grant Sheldon: Grant won the World University Games triathlon in 2016 and helped GB win the team title. His best World Triathlon result was third in Karlovy Vary in August 2019.
