The ITU World Triathlon Series culminates with the Grand Final in London this week, on a similar Hyde Park course as last year’s Olympic Games. In addition to the Senior Elites, both U23 and Junior Elites, paratriathletes and age-groupers will contend for world championship titles. The event also includes an open age-group race, which does not require a qualifying time. American Gwen Jorgensen narrowly leads the points in the WTS women’s series.
