This is the fourth time the World Triathlon Series will start in Abu Dhabi. ITU president and also IOC Member, Marisol Casado, during an interview, added: “We are thrilled to come back to UAE again, as is the perfect fit for the ITU World Triathlon Abu Dhabi and the magnificent venue will build on the competition’s success by helping us accommodate larger numbers in line with our objectives for this event.”
