March 22, 2024

/SPORTSWIRE WOMEN/ – Katie Zaferes is joining an all-star line-up for supertri E World Triathlon Championships powered by Zwift in London on April 13.

The American Olympic silver and bronze medallist is continuing her bid to qualify for Paris by tackling the multi-award winning hybrid real life and virtual race format for the first time, tickets available now.

Zaferes had her first child in 2022 and made a successful return to the supertri circuit at the end of last year. With supertri E also counting for World Triathlon ranking points it is another good opportunity for Zaferes to boost her standing in the chase for Olympic qualification.

Zaferes will be up against Olympic gold medal favourites Cassandre Beaugrand and Beth Potter, as well as another triathlon mum Vicky Holland. In addition, 16-year-old Fanni Szalai will be back in action a year after she burst onto the scene in supertri E in Switzerland.

Three-time Olympic medallist Jonny Brownlee headlines the men’s field in front of a home crowd at the London Aquatic Centre at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The 2024 edition will up the pressure for the pros even further with up to 60 athletes competing in a dramatic one-day World Championship event in partnership with World Triathlon on April 13 at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London, tickets available now.
