Highlights: ITU Triathlon Mixed Relay World Championships, 2013 to 2016

If you've already watched our interview with ITU President and IOC Member, Marisol Casado, you'll be well aware that the campaign and process to secure the addition of the Triathlon Mixed Relay format to the programme of the Olympic Games from Tokyo 2020 is well underway. That is far from a foregone conclusion however.

In it's favour, the primary criteria for new disciplines within the Olympics - all of which are met by Triathlon Mixed Relay - are:

  • appeal to fans and youth
  • event sustainability and impact to environment/LOC budget
  • gender balance

There is little doubt as to the viewing popularity of the Mixed Relay format, with the Commonwealth Games event in Glasgow attracting nearly three million viewers on the BBC. "The extra event is a win for all concerned,” said Mike Hooper, 2014 Commonwealth Games Federation CEO. 

We thought this was a good opportunity to look back on the history of the event at World Championship level, and below we provide easy access to the highlights videos of the four events from 2013 to 2016 inclusive. CLICK HERE to see the first four events, from 2009 to 2012.
