Stockholm has replaced Lausanne on the ITU World Series Circuit after the Swiss city had to withdraw from the series due to insufficient funding.
The event will still take place on 25-26 August but will now be hosted in the Swedish capital. A total prize purse of $170,000 USD will be on offer across the two races. It’ll be the first time since 1997 that Stockholm has hosted and ITU race, and is seen as a great boost for the profile of triathlon in the Nordic region.
