PROFESSIONAL TRIATHLETES ORGANISATION ANNOUNCES JOCELYN McCAULEY TO JOIN TEAM US AT THE COLLINS CUP

LONDON, ENGLAND: The Professional Triathletes Organisation today announced that Jocelyn McCauley will be joining Team US at The Collins Cup, replacing Heather Jackson, who is unable to attend for personal family reasons.

 

Karen Smyers, Team US Captain, commented, “While we are disappointed for Heather that she cannot attend the race after working so hard to qualify, we are very lucky to have an in-form McCauley ready to don the Stars and Stripes for Team US.”

 

McCauley, who has just returned from maternity leave after her second child was born only five months ago, recently finished 2nd at IM Finland and commented, “It is a blessing and an honour to represent the USA at the Collins Cup. I am thankful for the opportunity and grateful for the PTO’s paid maternity leave policy, which has allowed women professionals to thrive in their careers while at the same time attend to their families. While I will be leaving it all on the racecourse for the USA, it will be a joy for all the PTO professionals to celebrate the camaraderie of having our own organisation and event.”

 

The Collins Cup is the PTO’s inaugural flagship event taking place on 28th August in Šamorín and is a new race format modelled after the Ryder Cup, which will see teams of International, European and USA athletes pitted against one another and put on display the excitement, rivalry, drama and personalities of the sport of triathlon.

 

UPDATED RACE PLANS ANNOUNCED FOR 2021 AND 2022 EDITIONS OF THE IRONMAN 70.3 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

TAMPA, Fla. (Aug. 17, 2021) – IRONMAN today announced changes to the 2021 and 2022 editions of the IRONMAN® 70.3® World Championship based on the continued global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Travel and border restrictions are expected to prevent as many as half of the athlete field from being able to attend the 2021 Intermountain Healthcare IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship presented by Utah Sports Commission in St. George, Utah. As a result, the race will shift to a single-day event with both men and women racing on Saturday, September 18. Additionally, the 2022 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship that was set to be held in Taupō, New Zealand will also now be held in St. George, Utah, giving the travel-restricted athlete community an opportunity to race in the “Land of Endurance” with a two-day format from October 28-29, 2022.

 

World Championships Ironman Kona will not take place this year, moves to February 2022

After it was revealed earlier today that Ironman is offering athletes the option to defer their Kona slots from this year to 2023, 2024 or 2025, there is now much more far-reaching news: it is rumored that the Ironman World Championship in Kona will not take place this year and has been pushed to February 2022.

 

That rumor comes from a source known to the Triathlon Today editors who is in close contact with the Ironman organization. The news is expected to be officially announced very soon. “It is the government in Hawaii that has made this decision. Due to the high infection rate in Hawaii, it will be decided that the World Championships will not take place this year either. This will be confirmed by Ironman very soon.”

 

What's New in the 303:

Metzler, Knibb, Pallant-Browne Added to Collins Cup After Good Showings at IM Boulder 70.3

The Collins Cup is now set and IRONMAN Boulder 70.3 no doubt had an impact as Justin Metzler, Taylor Knibb and Emma Pallant-Browne were all chosen as Captains picks to join their respective teams. Metzler finished 5th in Boulder and Pallant-Browne and Knibb were first and second respectively helping them earn a spot. Also of note, added to the US team is Olympic silver medalist Katie Zaferes.

Also racing in Boulder last week, and already on their teams were; Sam Long, Sam Appleton, Skye Moench, Jeanni Metzler, and Chelsea Sadaro.
