COZUMEL — Some 25,000 athletes and spectators are expected to descend on Isla Cozumel this week for the 2016 ITU Triathlon World Championships, the crown event of the annual series of run-bike-swim competitions often referred to as “Ironman.”
The Mexican Triathlon Federation revealed details for what will be the biggest sporting event to be held in Cozumel, the “World Triathlon 2016”, which will involve more than eight thousand athletes from different countries around the world including Mexico.
Technical Secretary of the Cozumel City Council, Ricardo Espinosa Freyre, stressed the importance of working in coordination with the Mexican Triathlon Federation, which will take place from 11 to 18 September.
Officials are planning the routes and schedules of competitions that will take place on roads south of the hotel zone, Rafael E. Melgar Avenue and Benito Juarez park, in order to allow the sports events to develop properly without hindering the traffic flow in the island.
The President of the Mexican Triathlon Federation, Jaime Baeza Canabal, said the group is committed to coordinate each of the competencies, to prevent the disruptions to tourist and local mobility.
He stressed that this World Cup triathlon will be very important, since the six best athletes in the world at the Olympics “Rio de Janeiro 2016” will participate.
