The triathlon events get underway tomorrow, and British Triathlon wants the triathlon community to get involved and share their memorable moments from the Games.
Triathlon is one of the few free-to-view sports during the London 2012 Olympic Games, with much of Hyde Park open and un-ticketed during the events. The women’s race will take place tomorrow on Saturday 4 August at 9am and the men’s on Tuesday 7 August at 11:30am.
To help capture the memorable moments from the Games, British Triathlon has created a new online photo gallery, which will enable triathlon fans to share their images with the sport on twitter using the #triathlon. Any images that British Triathlon re-tweets will appear on the gallery.
To view the gallery, visit www.britishtriathlon.org/twitter-images/1
British Triathlon is looking for images from those who enjoy the events at home, in Hyde Park or at one of the eight Triathlon Live sites around the UK.
In addition to the online photo gallery, those that ‘Give it a tri’ at one of the eight Triathlon Live events from today until 12 August will be able to compare their scores with participants from around the UK using the online leaderboard, which is hosted on www.britishtriathlon.org/triathlon-live
Dr Sarah Springman CBE, British Triathlon President urged the triathlon community to share their favourite moments from the Games commenting: “On Saturday, the triathlon events will get underway and I look forward to cheering the athletes on along with thousands of spectators in Hyde Park, as well as all those watching at home or at a Triathlon Live venue. I hope the whole triathlon community gets behind Team GB and helps us capture the most memorable moments from the Games.”
