In Empuriabrava a triathlon became a "duathlon" on Sunday
EMPURIABRAVA / CATALONIA / SPAIN: The announced triathlon in Empuriabrava on Sunday was not a good star and especially suffered from the swimming competition - which had to be canceled due to high waves and jellyfish masses (!!!). Instead, they let the numerous participants run a few more kilometers, then cycling and then running again.
All athletes were apparently in agreement with this solution, although the times and results were not officially evaluated. In the end, all participants were exhausted, but proud of the finish and winner of the two competitions - sprint and Olympic distance - received their deserved medals and trophies.
