WELCOME TO THE EUROPE TRIATHLON CHAMPIONSHIPS IN OLSZTYN 2022

By media@europe.triathlon.org | 23 May, 2022
4 years in a row Olsztyn has been hosting successfully a Europe Triathlon Cup and Europe Triathlon Junior Cup.

For the 5 year anniversary Olsztyn will level up the event by hosting the Europe Triathlon Championships. Elite, U23 and junior athletes will race in a super-sprint semi-final and final format, while the juniors also will have the mixed relay Championships, Age Group athletes will have the standard distance European Championships and also the Paratriathletes will have their Championships in Olsztyn.

The event will take place in beautiful Olsztyn (Poland). The schedule of the event includes:
1) Elite/U23 and Junior Supersprint semifinals (Friday / 27.05.2022)
2) Elite/U23 and Junior Supersprint finals (Saturday / 28.05.2022)
3) Junior Mixed Relay (Sunday / 29.05.2022)
4) Paratriathlon (Sprint) (Date TBA)
5) Age-Group Standard (Sunday / 29.05.2022)

Olsztyn is the largest city and the capital of region of Warmia and Mazury. In the city of 650 years history live over 170 thousands people. Most famous monuments of Olsztyn are gothic castle, Cathedral of Saint Jacob and Upper Gate located on the boarder of old city walls.
The biggest advantage of the city is its unique location among the forests and the lakes. 12 (and some people say that even 15!) lakes and City Forest – one of the biggest European park are located within the borders of Olsztyn. To accent those advantages, the vision of Olsztyn development extracts to the conception of city garden. The defensive architecture of the XIV-century’s Warmia, unrepeatable XIX- and XX-century secession and interesting performances, concerts and exhibitions – all of that cause tourists, who want cameral atmosphere and tranquility, to seek in Olsztyn the possibility of the escape from the daily routine’s noise. Strolling through the streets of the Old City they may admire the rests of city walls, castle’s massive construction or overlooking the buildings cathedral’s copula. Facing the original astronomical plaque (totally unique hand-made by Nicolaus Copernicus!) they have a chance to feel the blow of the history and later discover its present “face” at Olsztyn’s planetarium.

Nicolaus Copernicus is the most famous person in the history of Olsztyn, where he managed goods and defended the city from Teutonic forces. Here he carried out his great researches and wrote magnificent works. Today four Olsztyn’s colleges maintain this science tradition. Over 45 thousands people study in the largest of them – University of Warmia and Mazury.

Olsztyn is worth visiting – a genuinely “Natural Garden!”.

The elite men start list sees some great athletes like Genis Grau from Spain and Nicola Azzano from Italy, both had some top level results in the 2021 season. The elite women’s race will see a full German team ready to take the top spots of the podium. The two “finish line jumping” juniors, De Nigro from Italy and Liepa from Latvia, will also be competing in the Junior men’s race. Tilda Mansonn, amongst other great triathletes, will be taking part in the Junior women’s race. We also can’t wait to see all Age Groupers out on the racecourse on Sunday!
