Can Zaferes and Luis hold on for one more battle to be crowned SLT Champions, or will there be a major upset in Singapore?
22 February 2019 – Singapore: With just one day to go until the final Super League Championship event of the season in Singapore, the stakes have never been higher for our group of world-class athletes. The double points scoring system for this final racing weekend means that current SLT leaders Katie Zaferes (USA) and Vincent Luis (FRA) will still need to continue their dominant performances in the island city-state, in order to secure their Championship titles.
SLT athletes settle into Singapore ahead of this weekend’s racing.
Stars of The Harlem Globetrotters put SLT athletes through their paces in Singapore in the Athlete Superchallenge.
Two notable athletes have had to pull out ahead of the racing in Singapore: Belgium’s Marten Van Riel and the USA’s Kirsten Kasper. Van Riel has been struggling with an upper leg injury for some weeks now and was hoping to have recovered in time, and Kasper has had to miss out on her shot at the title due to an adductor strain.
With so many talented athletes pushing themselves to their limits over the course of the SLT season, SLT’s co-founder Chris ‘Macca’ McCormack gives his predictions on who he thinks will finish on the podium after the racing in Singapore, and who we should keep an eye on for dramatic contention:
