But if you are in Europe or in America, these times will be just perfect for enjoying one of the best shows in Tokyo! And the best thing about being the early birds? There will be absolutely nothing else going on in Tokyo at the same time as our races, so you really have no excuse not to tune in!
The athlete number and transition position was assigned by a random draw and are grouped together by their National Federation, so unlike a World Triathlon race, these numbers have no relation to the ranking of the athlete.
Mixed Relay start list – Please note that names of the athletes for the Mixed Relay wont be confirmed until 2 hours before the start of the race https://triathlon.org/events/start_list/2020_tokyo_olympic_games/501766?mc_cid=53a1f82f65&mc_eid=6139649918
The Triathlon Mixed Relay format showcases racing at its most thrilling, with the individual sport combining with pure team spirit. After many years as a firm fixture on the World Triathlon calendar with multiple events, the Mixed Relay will make its official Olympic debut in Tokyo 2020.
Four athletes – two male & two female – from the same National Federation will form the teams. Athletes must complete a super-sprint triathlon – 300m swim, 6.8km bike and 2km run – before tagging off to a teammate, always in the order female-male-female-male. Among the most exciting aspects of these races for spectators is the athletes’ dramatic sprint and dive after being tagged by their teammate, as well as the intensity and speed from start to finish, the tight back-and-forth lead changes and team pride that this innovative racing format elicits.
Triathlon events will take place at Odaiba Bay.
