We are delighted to support Olympic hopeful Carolyn Hayes as she works towards representing Ireland at the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo.

A total of seven triathletes will travel this week to Hamburg for the Triathlon World Championship to race across two days in what promises to be the most anticipated event the sport has seen since the Rio Olympic Games in 2016.

The event is the first to resume on the World Triathlon calendar since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and will see the world’s best triathletes line up in Hamburg.

Saturday’s event will be the first international triathlon race for an Irish athlete since Carolyn Hayes won a silver medal at the Mauritius African Cup in March.

Hayes, who is Ireland’s top-ranked triathlete said she didn’t expect to be able to race again this year and believes this World Championship will be an important step towards next year’s planned Olympic Games.

“I am super excited, obviously there are nerves but they are the good nerves. This is my first ever World Champs and I am looking forward to lining up against everyone because that’s the level I want to race at. Come the Olympics next year they are the people I will be competing against”, said Hayes.

Next week the focus of the international triathlon community will shift to the Czech Republic where Carolyn will line out for the Karlovy Vary World Cup.
