FISU and the International Triathlon Union sign collaboration convention at the SportAccord Convention

 

 

LAUSANNE - ITU President Marisol Casado signed an agreement with FISU President Oleg Matytsin at the SportAccord Convention in Lausanne, which officialises the extensive cooperation between the two organisations.

The agreement features some key points based on the critical aspects of:

- Gender equality;

- Development of both University Sports and Triathlon;

- Increased cooperation in the technical aspect of the FISU events and the potential evolution of the sport within the FISU sport programme.

ITU has agreed to recognise the FISU Triathlon event as an ITU Under 23 World Championship allocating world ranking points to the athletes, a critical step forward for FISU in the improvement of the event’s level and participation.

Triathlon is one of the most successful sports within the FISU World University Championships programme and has been organised every WUC season since 1992. The 2016 edition will be held in Nyon, Switzerland while in 2018 the best student triathletes will travel to Kalmar, Sweden.
