Singapore welcomes the world’s best triathletes to the Arena Games Triathlon Grand Final. Taking place at the iconic Marina Bay area, marks the first time that professional athletes including Olympic Champions Alex Yee, Jess Learmonth and Georgia Taylor-Brown will take to the waters of the Marina Reservoir.
The event will also feature a corporate race, Tri Club race and Singapore National Championships.
The Arena Games Triathlon Singapore is the last of three events this season, with the previous two taking place in Munich (9 April) and London (23 April). Arena Games Triathlon London men’s winner Justus Nieschlag (GER) arrives in Singapore at the top of the table, while Munich champion Beth Potter (GBR) will look to overtake Cassandre Beaugrand (FRA) as leader in the women’s standings.
Ahead of the Grand Final, the athletes got a chance to meet with members of the local sports community as they conducted running workshops and training sessions for youth from the ActiveSG Athletics Club and SportCares. They also tried their hand at making roti prata and “pulling” teh tarik, local delights known and loved by many in the region.
The Arena Games Triathlon powered by Zwift is a result of the ground-breaking partnership between Super League Triathlon (SLT) and World Triathlon (WT) to create a global esports World Championship series. The Arena Games Triathlon, a trailblazing concept by SLT, features real-life and virtual racing action with the action turned into a visual race via Zwift’s online platform.
Previous iterations have all taken place indoors but the Grand Final in Singapore will mark a first as all three disciplines will take place outdoors.
The triathletes will start their 200m swim in the Marina Reservoir before completing their 4km bike and 1km run legs on smart trainers and self-powered curved treadmills placed on the promenade of Marina Bay.
