The 2022 World Triathlon Championship Series Chengdu and the 2022 World Triathlon Cup Weihai, won’t be taking place “due to the impact of ongoing COVID-19 restrictions in China”, World Triathlon announced.

“According to the COVID-19 Prevention and Control Policy applied by the Chinese government, all travelers from aboard still have to go through ’14+7′ days of quarantine in designated hotels, a time during which the athletes and staff would not have access to training facilities, and which makes it impossible to move forward with the events”, World Triathlon explained in a press release.

World Triathlons and the local event organizers hope the events will return in 2023, as they both desire to grow the sport of triathlon within Asia.
