The World’s Fastest Triathlon is Set to Rock ONE°15 Marina and Sentosa Cove

This weekend, some of the world’s most competitive athletes will be at ONE°15 Marina and Sentosa Cove for the first running of the Super League Triathlon in Singapore. A new and unique competitive event that is designed to be spectator-friendly, the pro segment will have competitors racing to will a combined total prize purse of US$1.5 million. The season started in Jersey in September, before continuing to Malta, Mallorca and will be finishing in Singapore. The current leader board showcases an impressive list of the best triathletes in the world, ensuring spectators will be able to see the best-of-the-best deliver their most tactical racing strategies and claim the ultimate prize. The unique course is built to run around ONE°15 Marina and Sentosa Cove. Featuring a lap system that allows spectators to see much of the action, the race format is unique to the Super League Triathlon. Thought up by Chris McCormack, a two-time winner (2007, 2010) of the Ironman World Championship, and Michael D’Hulst, the format of SLT is designed to deliver a game-changing racing experience in a series of fast-paced events with unpredictable outcomes, with shorter races than the traditional Olympic distance. There are five different race formats: Triple Mix, Eliminator, Equalizer, Sprint Enduro, and Enduro. Two are selected and showcased at each location event. In Singapore, athletes will battle it out in the Eliminator and Enduro formats. The Eliminator is a pressure-cooker format where field position proves key over timing. Athletes go through three continuous rounds of swim-bike-run. The Eliminator allows a 10-minute break in between each round, only to eliminate athletes who didn’t make the cut to the next stage. Only the Top 15 get through to Stage Two, before it gets further trimmed to just 10 athletes competing for precious points. The Enduro is a non-stop burst of three continuous rounds of swim, bike, and run. The added element of speed is tied into the race, with any athletes dropping 90 seconds behind being eliminated at the end of each discipline. The winner is the first athlete across the finish line upon completion of the entire race sequence. Expect to see Olympic silver medalist Jonny Brownlee of the United Kingdom and Olympic bronze medalist Henri Schoeman of South Africa as they chase down Vincent Luis of France, who currently leads the Championship standings. For the women, the current leader and 2018 ITU bronze medalist, Katie Zaferes of the USA is chasing the title, with Kristen Kasper and Rachel Klamer. The Under-19 Asia Championship will also see some of the most talented triathletes from Asia take to the race course. Entry is FREE for all spectators who can also take part in a series of fun activities at the Super League Triathlon Fanzone during the race weekend. On offer will be face painting and airbrush tattoos, bouncy castle fun and DJ’s playing some great tunes. A range of food and beverages will also be available to purchase so spectators can keep refuelled throughout the weekend. SLT Singapore Pros Course Map
