View Men Semi-Finals –
There was excitement aplenty as the athletes for RBC Super League Triathlon Jersey 2019 learned their semi-final draws in dramatic fashion.
Defending champions Vincent Luis and Katie Zaferes stood in front of a cinema full of their opponents and made the draws to decide who would line-up against who to try and make it into Sunday’s final.
Luis was up first and drew himself in Group A alongside the likes of Marten Van Riel, Kristian Blummenfelt and Mario Mola. Local favourites Ollie Turner, from Jersey, and Josh Lewis, from Guernsey, were also drawn together. Group B features some of the fastest swimmers in the sport.
In the women’s, Katie Zaferes drew herself in Group A alongside rival Cassandre Beaugrand and Vicky Holland, who the American succeeded as WTS champion. Group B was again packed with top swimmers.
The draw was made with the Ranked Athletes from last year’s top tens drawn first and split evenly between the two groups before the Wildcards and Qualifiers were then drawn at random. The athletes were then left to pick their own pontoon spots for the swim start based on their seedings.
The top five men and top five women from each Group will make it through to Sunday’s Final, along with the five fastest other athletes.
The Semi-Finals will be raced over the shortened Enduro format with a swim-bike-run-swim-bike-run. Sunday’s final is the Enduro with three back-to-back swim-bike-runs.
