WTS Abu Dhabi: who will be victorious in 2017?

The 2017 ITU World Triathlon Series starts this weekend in Abu Dhabi, with the women racing tomorrow morning (UK time) Friday 3 March, followed by the men on Saturday morning (UK time).


Like last year Abu Dhabi will be a standard-distance event, but debuting a brand new course that will stretch over the famous Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix course.

Commonwealth Games gold medallist Jodie Stimpson (GBR) will be returning to defend her Abu Dhabi title, while ITU World Champion and Abu Dhabi defending champion Mario Mola (ESP) will be hoping for his third win here.
