Statement regarding the PTO Ibiza announcement

By Olalla Cernuda | 07 Nov, 2023

World Triathlon would like to express that, as was mentioned last August in the agreement signed with the Professional Triathletes Organization (PTO),  we have agreed to launch the official World Championship Tour of long-distance triathlon that will award the World Champion title. In regards to the Continental Championships, the negotiations are still to be finalized and we hope to reach an agreement in the coming weeks, therefore no European Championship title should be awarded by PTO at this stage. We are in communication with the PTO to clarify this.

The President of Europe Triathlon, Renato Bertrandi, states: “We are happy to have new collaborations with professional Partners like PTO  but at present, for the 2024 season, our European Championship for Elite and AG on middle distance will be staged in the Multisport Festival that will take place in June 2024. The location and date of the middle distance European Championships (as well as the other European Championships) will be announced next week”.
