The World Triathlon Para Series moves to Swansea, Wales, for the next edition of the Para Triathlon World Circuit on Saturday, August 6, with six medal events, for men and women, across different paragraph categories. 2022 World Triathlon Para Series Swansea Swansea leads a week-long festival of semi-festive sporting events including the first-ever International Parathlon Conference. Race events at the Para Swansea World Triathlon Championships begin at 1pm local time on the south side of the Prince of Wales Basin. It’s a deep water start and Para Triathlon swimmers swim a single lap of the 750-metre course. The high-profile athletes will cycle from the transition to the exit and return section along the waterfront promenade, before completing four courses from downtown and back to the transition. The 20 km track is largely flat but has a number of technical sections that will test the athletes on Saturday.

In the men’s PTWC category from Austria, Florian Brongraber, who won gold in the 2022 Triathlon World Cup, Besancon will be the favorite and will face players such as Italy’s Giovanni Achenza, who won bronze at the Para Triathlon World Championships in Montreal, and France’s Ahmed El Andalous, Bronze medalist in 2022 Besancon.

World Triathlon Champion Lauren Parker of Australia and World Triathlon Champion Lauren Parker is the best female PTWC athlete after claiming an impressive gold medal at the 2022 Triathlon World Series in Montreal.

In the men’s PTS2 class, it will be hard to beat France’s Jules Repsten, gold medalist in the 2022 World Cup Besancon Triathlon, and Spain’s Lionel Morales, who won gold in Montreal.

USA Helly Dans, silver medalist at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games and gold medalist at the most recent 2022 World Triathlon Championship Series in Montreal, is the favorite to win the women’s PTS2 class.

Brazilian player Stephane Daniel and Canadian George Bisgood will see him chasing the highest score on the podium in this category. His teammate Carlos Rafael Viana will also be one to watch in the field.

In the women’s PTS5 class, it’s hard to get past USA Handicap Champion Grace Norman for a win. Norman was unbeatable on the 2022 circuit and will be looking to continue her success. A great fight is expected to be on its way with Claire Cashmore of Great Britain wanting to dominate in front of a local crowd in Swansea.

Dave Ellis is currently #1 in the men’s PTVI class and his job will be to cross the line for first place at the World Triathlon Para Series in Swansea. After the amazing Commonwealth Games campaign for gold in his category, it will be hard to beat Ellis.
