Triathlon in 2011 had some amazing moments, and now you can relive them through the official ITU book and DVD pack - Triathlon 2011 - The Races, the Champions.

Packed into almost 200 pages are some of the amazing shots from the Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Series rounds in Sydney, Madrid, Kitzbühel, Hamburg, London, Lausanne, the Beijing Grand Final and Yokohama, including some that have never been published before, and articles on each race. Want to read more about Paula Findlay‘s stunning hat trick to open the season, or Javier Gomez‘s epic comeback in Sydney, Andrea Hewitt‘s Grand Final domination, or any one of Alistair Brownlee‘s four series wins? It’s all summed up in here, as well as the name of every single age-group athlete who competed in the World Championships in Beijing, summaries of each ITU World Cup race and more. The stunning images include those from regular ITU series photographers Delly Carr, Janos Schmidt and Frank Wechsel.

The book and DVD also celebrates some other significant moments for triathlon in 2011, including the first ITU World Champions from Chile and Poland, and the increasing growth of the dynamic Team Triathlon format. There were a record 35 teams from 28 different national federations at the 2011 Team Triathlon Championships in Lausanne, and the passion from all involved is evident here. This year was also significant for Paratriathlon, with 72 athletes competing in the first world championships since Paratriathlon was accepted into the programme for the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games.
