Challenge Family’s The Championship, which takes place on May 22 and features the world’s best athletes competing for the coveted titles of the most prestigious race within the Challenge Family label, will be broadcasted for free and in full via a live stream provided by Triathlon Today. Just like last year, O2 TV Production will be responsible for the production of the live stream. Thanks to that live stream, triathlon enthusiasts from around the world can enjoy this race that is packed with spectacle every year.
Not only defending champions Lucy Buckingham (GBR) and Florian Angert (GER) will return to Samorin, Slovakia, but dozens of pro athletes will also compete for the prestigious victory and a prize pool of no less than 100,000 euro. The Championship can be followed in its entirety, from start to finish, thanks to the live stream, and will feature commentary by Belinda Granger. “We are tremendously excited to be able to present a live stream as Triathlon Today, making a race as impactful as The Championship visible for free to fans around the world. Our editors follow races globally throughout the year to report on the latest triathlon news, but of course there are always a few iconic races that are extra special for all of us. The Championship unmistakably belongs into that category; every year the highest level of racing takes place here. We want everyone to be able to enjoy a race like this and therefore find it important that this live stream is available,” says Triathlon Today Editor in Chief Tim Moria.
Challenge Family CEO Jort Vlam is hugely looking forward to The Championship and is pleased with the presence of a free live stream. “This is of course a hugely important race for us and in addition to that, Challenge Family is primarily focused on athletes. That also means that we want to make our races as visible and accessible as possible. We want The Championship – a race with huge appeal for the best athletes in the world – to be visible worldwide and so we are incredibly pleased with Triathlon Today’s initiative, which makes this possible.”
The live stream of The Championship is free to watch and will be broadcasted via challenge-family.live and the Triathlon Today website, along with social media channels, among others. The Championship takes place on May 22 and, as always, will be held on and around the x-bionic sphere® in Samorin, Slovakia.
