Almaty hosts international triathlon competitions as part of the TEMIRADAM Cup 

On August 3-4, 2019, races of the VIII stage of the TEMIRADAM Cup took place on Lake Sairan in Almaty. These competitions, organized by the Kazakhstan Triathlon Federation, are held sequentially in all regions of Kazakhstan, the final part is held in autumn in Aktau on the Caspian coast. Only amateur triathletes from 18 to 60+ years old participate in the cup, as well as in the IRONMAN world championship.

182 individual athletes and 10 teams (three people each) from Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, and South Korea arrived in Almaty. Athletes competed at "Olympic distance" (1500 m swimming + 40 km cycling + 10 km run).

Sairan met the triathletes with hot and suffocating weather, as often happens before a thunderstorm in southern Kazakhstan. However, the race was held at a high pace. Among men, the unshakeable leader at all stages was the most experienced triathlete and trainer, multiple Ironman Pavel Artyushenko (Almaty). Behind him were the almost no less eminent athletes Maxim Mazur, Maxim Mzhelsky (both also from the southern capital) and Muscovite Arseny Eliseev. However, Artyushenko stepped up the pace more and more, and as a result became the sole leader - he was the first to finish the race in 2 hours 09 minutes and 55 seconds. In addition to winning in his age category, Pavel also became the winner in the absolute individual standings.

In the women's race, experience also dominated the medals. The first to finish was the famous Almaty triathlete Yekaterina Shatnaya. A participant in the 2004 Olympics, the “diamond lady” (as women are often called after the IRONMAN World Cup in Hawaii) had no difficulty overtaking all her rivals. Yekaterina's result is comparable to many men's achievements: 2 hours 27 minutes 08 seconds.

Among the relay teams, the AlmatyBroTeam (Almaty) turned out to be the best with a result of 2 hours 08 minutes 02 seconds.

In other age categories, the winners were:

M18-24 Diaz Kuntuarov (Nur-Sultan): 02:34:35; M25-29 Maxim Mzhelsky (Almaty): 02:17:45; M30-34 Arseny Eliseev (Moscow, Russia): 02:09:55; M35-39 Mikhail Kuvshinnikov (Almaty): 02:15:50; M45-49 Vladislav Kopbosunov (Almaty): 02:31:45; M50-54 Talgat Zhumagaliev (Almaty): 02:38:41; M55-59 Dandybai Alimbaev (Shymkent): 02:57:51.
