Changes to 2007 World Cup calendar

 
También texto en español.

The newly added Rhodes BG Triathlon World Cup will be held on October 7th as the ninth stop of the 2007 circuit in response to the recent notification to the International Triathlon Union (ITU) of the unfortunate exit of two other world cups scheduled for 2007.

Due to insufficient resources the Belo Horizonte BG Triathlon World Cup, scheduled for October 21st in Brazil, and the Aqaba BG Triathlon World Cup, scheduled for December 7th in Jordan, have been removed from the 2007 BG Triathlon World Cup calendar.

The Hellenic Triathlon Federation has offered up their expertise and resources left behind after the successful organisation of the 2004 Athens Olympic Games to host a world cup in place of one of these departing events.

“With hundreds of athletes fighting for every Olympic qualification point available, it was vital that a replacement be found,” commented ITU Executive Director, Loreen Barnett. “We want to capitalize on all the work done by the Greek authorities and the national federation in preparation for the Olympic Games. To have all of this knowledge and resource in the country, we feel it is a great Olympic legacy to host a world cup there.”

With these changes the 2007 BG Triathlon World Cup series settles at 15 stops. With eight world cups already complete, athletes and officials take a brief hiatus before returning to action at the Kitzbuhel BG Triathlon World Cup in Austria on July 22nd.

Una vez en casa de una de las Siete Maravillas del Mundo, el Coloso, la isla griega de Rodas reunirá a los titanes del mundo del triatlón como una de las pruebas de la Copa del Mundo de Triatlón BG 2007. La recién añadida Copa del Mundo de Triatlón BG de Rodas será el siete de Octubre, siendo la novena parada del circuito del 2007 como figura en la reciente notificación de la Unión Internacional de Triatlón (ITU), en respuesta a la desafortunada salida del circuito de otras dos copas del mundo programadas para el 2007.

Debido a los recursos insuficientes la Copa del Mundo de Triatlón BG de Belo Horizonte, programada para el 21 de Octubre en Brasil y la Copa del Mundo de Triatlón BG de Aqaba, programada para el 7 de Diciembre en Jordania, se han suprimido del calendario de la Copa del Mundo de Triatlón BG del 2007.

La Federación Griega de Triatlón se ha ofrecido con su experiencia y recursos, que quedaron tras la exitosa organización de los Juegos Olímpicos de Atenas 2004, para albergar una Copa del Mundo en lugar de una de estas competiciones que no se van a disputar.

“Con cientos de atletas luchando por cada uno de los puntos de calificación Olímpica, era vital encontrar un sustituto”, comentó la directora ejecutiva de la ITU, Loreen Barnett. “Nosotros queremos que el trabajo hecho por las autoridades griegas y la Federación Nacional Griega durante los Juegos Olímpicos sea útil para poner en marcha esta competición. Tener este conocimiento y medios en el país es un gran legado que han dejado los Juegos Olímpicos.”

Con estos cambios la Copa del Mundo de Triatlón BG se ve reducida a 15 pruebas. Con ocho copas del mundo ya completadas, atletas y oficiales se toman un pequeño paréntesis antes de volver a la acción en la Copa del Mundo de Triatlón de Kitzbuhel en Austria el 22 de Julio.
