While the Olympic events in Tokyo will likely be the most popular draft-legal triathlon events of the year, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has global broadcast agreements which preclude the racing to be shown on TriathlonLive. Don’t worry, though, the events will be likely be shown on your regional broadcast outlet that has the rights for the Games. This is also a great year to tune in – for the first time ever the Olympics will hold three triathlon events thanks to the addition of the Mixed Team Relay in Tokyo.
