Super League is fast becoming known as a hotbed for the future of triathlon with the next generation of stars making their mark on the biggest stage of all.
Super League Malta saw two Juniors become the first young triathletes to qualify for a Pro Final with Beatrice Mallozzi and Bianca Seregni making it to the big show.
The Italian duo won the right to line-up against some of the most established stars in the sport by winning through their Junior race.
They then pulled off the ultimate shock by backing that up by racing hard again later the same day to book a spot in the Final.
It meant they both gained exposure to racing Super League’s thrilling formats alongside their heroes and collected prize money and Championship Series points in the process.
Their efforts followed on the back of Simon Henseleit, who blazed a trail for the Juniors at RBC Super League Triathlon Jersey 2019.
The young German won through his Junior race and produced a storming performance in the Pro Semi-Finals. However, he had to turn down his slot for the Final.
Henseleit was invited back to race in the Pro Semi-Finals in Malta but an unfortunate crash means he must wait for a chance to finally get into a Final.
Nicolo Strada was another who had a moment in the sun. After coming through the Junior race in Malta he stunned the triathlon world by coming out of the swim in his Pro Semi-Final alongside Vincent Luis and deservedly enjoyed his time in the spotlight.
Super League is committed to offering amazing opportunities to young athletes as part of its commitment to develop the sport and deliver a pathway to the Professional ranks for up and coming talent.
The chance to compete alongside the Pros means not only incredible race experience but the chance of profile boosting global TV and social media coverage and an opportunity to potentially win prize money and Championship Series points.
To lead into the Junior ranks Super League also offers Youth races. Like the Juniors they follow similar formats and courses as the Pros.
There will be many more opportunities for Juniors and Youths to race and qualify in 2020 and any federations interested should contact SLT’s Youth & Junior Athlete Services Manager Joe Kubizniak at email@example.com
