The 2022 Olsztyn European Triathlon Championships are behind us!

By | 03 Jun, 2022

From 27th to 29th May the European Triathlon Championships took place in Olsztyn, capital of Warmia and Mazury. Elite, U23, Juniors, Age-Group and Paratriathletes competed for the 2022 European Champion title. The weather in Olsztyn was not kind to athletes and fans, rainy, windy and rather cold. Apart from this detail which had no influence, the competition took place in a fantastic atmosphere and without major problems. The starting lists included nearly 1,000 competitors from 36 countries.
On Friday 27th the semifinals of Junior, U23 and Elite, male and female, took place. 


The Para Triathletes competitions took place on Saturday morning, divided into 6 categories, the competition was transformed into a Duathlon, because of the bad weather and water temperature in Lake Ukiel. Competitors competed in the formula: 2.4km run / 14.7km bike / 5.2km run. This twist of events made the races even more interesting to follow, to see who would take the top steps of the podiums.

The Swedish girl Tilda Månsson became the European Junior Champion with a time of 25:46, leaving a gap of 6 seconds to the second ranked, the French Ilona Hadohoum. The third step of the podium was conquered by the German Julia Brocker who finished the race in 26min and 11s.
