2021 Multisport World Championships Qualifier Coming to Sebring

21 Dec, 2020


USA Triathlon announced it will offer a 2021 Multisport World Championships Qualifier on May 1-2 in Sebring, Florida, as part of the Sebring Multisport Festival produced by Integrity Multisport. The event is an opportunity for age group athletes to qualify for USA Triathlon’s Team USA for 2021 World Triathlon Championships in three different locations — Edmonton, Canada; Almere-Amsterdam, Netherlands; and Viborg, Denmark — across a variety of multisport disciplines.

Registration for all World Qualifier events is open now at triregistration.com.

The World Qualifier will be held to account for the various 2020 USA Triathlon National Championships that were canceled due to COVID-19, and which would have otherwise qualified athletes for 2021 World Championships. In addition, athletes who had previously qualified for 2020 World Triathlon Championships impacted by COVID-19 were given the option to roll their qualification over to 2021. More details about the qualification process can be found at usatriathlon.org/teamusa.

The 2021 World Qualifier in Sebring will include the following multisport disciplines, and top athletes in each age group will qualify for their respective 2021 World Championships:
