In case of disagreement in the interpretation of the rules, the English text shall be regarded as authoritative. Please find more information on regulations on the ITU website:

 

Rules for lapped athlete and first runner/last biker doesn’t apply

Even if the WUC Triathlon 2018 in Kalmar is a multi loop course, the race management together with FISU has decided to not apply the rule for lapped athlete during the bike and the rule for first runner/last biker. The design of the course will let us have all athletes finish even if lapped.

Multi country relay teams

At the WUC Triathlon 2018 in Kalmar we will allow multi country relay teams. If your country doesn’t have enough members to set up your own mixed relay team you will still be able to team up with another country and create your own multi country relay team. These teams are allowed to compete just for fun of the sport and will be placed outside of the rankings.
