Super League Triathlon CEO Michael D’hulst said: “I am very proud that what started as a concept and a passion for three triathlon fanatics has driven such rapid change in the sport through its constant innovation and has its own legacy and tradition as we celebrate the fifth edition of the Championship Series.
“In our short history, we have grown into a triathlon powerhouse boasting two successful IP’s including the award-winning Arena Games Triathlon and our future expansion into the US with the acquisition of the Chicago and New York Triathlons. All of this is underpinned with incredible content which had 408 million impressions in 2022 alone and 111 million video views. This year’s Championship Series is a celebration of our journey so far and the start of our next chapter of ambitious growth and exciting announcements for 2024. With iconic city venues and an incredible line-up of world-class athletes, I am expecting the most exciting and competitive racing yet.”
D’Hulst does ignore the fact that Super League Triathlon is coming under increasing criticism. Viewers are increasingly indicating that they do not always find the different rules and formats interesting. Most of the criticism is focusing on the Arena Games though.
