In the final World Triathlon Series race before the Olympics, Hamburg Wasser World Triathlon offers Rio-bound athletes a final speed tune up with a sprint-distance race on Saturday. Also one of just three World Triathlon Series races left on the calendar, the one-lap swim, six-lap bike and two-lap run course offers final opportunities to accumulate critical points in the hunt for a World Championship title. Hamburg will host some of triathlon’s top athletes with Mario Mola (ESP), Richard Murray (RSA), Gwen Jorgensen (USA), Helen Jenkins (GBR) and Jodie Stimpson (GBR) poised to race.

The weekend of events will also include the ITU Mixed Relay World Championships, which sees two men and two women each complete a mini triathlon. In addition to the elite races, Hamburg will host more than 10,000 age group athletes on Saturday and Sunday.
