The 2012 ITU Dextro Energy World Championship Series kicks off on Monday in Yokohama, Japan, with a strong contingent of the world’s best short-course triathletes competing.

The event was originally supposed to be part of the 2011 World Championship Series season, but it was rescheduled after a devastating earthquake and tsunami hit Japan in March.

The next World Championship Series race, which is scheduled for Sydney, won’t occur until April of 2012.
