Bali test for triathletes

BALI will once again be the focus of sports enthusiasts for the annual Bank Central Asia (BCA) Super League Triathlon Bali 2020 qualifier series.

Kicking off on April 3 at the picturesque grounds of Ayodya Resort, Super League Triathlon (SLT) will be putting some of the world’s best elite athletes through the ultimate physical test.

Ranked as one of the top island destinations in the world, athletes can look forward to experiencing sun-drenched stretches of pristine sand, clear blue waters, lush tropical forests and majestic volcanoes as they push their bodies to their sporting limits while vying for a coveted entry into the SLT Championship Series, the richest and highest profile race season in the sport, with only three spots on offer for men and three for women.

BCA Super League Triathlon Bali 2020 will offer both pro and amateur participants a varied and challenging race course through lush tropics with wet, hilly and demanding terrain unlike any other.

SLT co-founder and four-time Triathlon World Champion Chris McCormack said: “Super League has reinvented the sport of triathlon, positioning it to the modern-day consumer with formats that are sporty and entertaining while ensuring the programme is environmentally sustainable.

“Our format enables us to operate in an 800m loop so we do not disrupt the activities of the community.

“This has made us accessible to all ages and sporting levels. We are proud to bring triathlon to the masses.”

SLT is the pinnacle of the sport on the world’s stage, delivering game-changing formats — mixing up long and short course athletes — in a series of fast-paced events with unpredictable outcomes that culminate in the crowning of the best and most versatile male and female triathletes in the world.

Over the course of the season, the top male and female triathletes from around the world battle it out for the crown to become the best all-round triathlete.

“We are very glad to be collaborating with Super League Triathlon once again — an event that attracts athletes and sports lovers in Indonesia.

“Besides increasing the awareness of active living and highlighting the dedication it takes to be a great athlete, the introduction of BCA Super League Triathlon Bali is a great platform to unite local and international athletes and sports lovers alike,” said BCA director Santoso.
