Take part in the championship - become a member of the Almaty Triathlon team!

On September 15th 2019, the Almaty Arena complex will host the Almaty Open Triathlon Championship for athletes from 7 to 23 years of age.

 

The main objectives of the championship are to popularize triathlon and identify promising young athletes to boost the ranks the Almaty Triathlon Federation team.

 

“For coaches, such races are part of a lot of “selection”work,” says the chief judge of the competition, Maxim Mazur. “During the race, we pay special attention to the younger group, because in order to create an outstanding athlete, you need to start practicing with him from an early age.”

 

It should be noted that in the last two years the Almaty Triathlon Federation has nurtured several talented athletes. Gaziza Kumakbaeva and Daria Bychkova became the best triathletes in Kazakhstan in 2018 (Gaziza has already moved to the national team of the Republic of Kazakhstan), and 15-year-old athlete Alexander Ten has won three top titles in a row since the beginning of 2019 - he became sequentially the champion of Kazakhstan, Central Asia and finally all Asia! Other athletes have also shown good results and have every chance to become among the country's leading triathletes.

 

“The Almaty team is constantly being renewed”, said Valikhan Ten, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Almaty Triathlon Federation. “Our athletes are growing, becoming champions, but unfortunately this means they are moving on, and we need to train new ones. So - parents, bring your children to the Triathlon and keep in mind: your children's victories today are not only a way onto the city team, but then to the national team, and this is the way to future Olympics. Of course, not all participants will immediately get into the national team, our coaches will choose the most promising triathletes. But the rest should not be upset - that means your chance is yet to come.”

 

As for the upcoming championship, it will be held in two stages. Athletes from 7-9 years old will participate in the Aquathlon race (swimming 50 m, running 1 km). Another aquathlon distance (swimming 100 m, running 2 km) will be held for children 10-12 years old. And finally, athletes from 13 to 23 years old will compete in the Triathlon at Super Sprint distance (swimming 300 m, 8 km cycling, 2 km run).
