The Arena Games thrilled London on Saturday – and two weeks from now, the first World Triathlon Esports World Champions will be crowned.

First up it was Germany, then London and now the Grand Final in Singapore takes place on May 7.

We brought you in-depth coverage right here, including embedded live streams (geoblocking applies) and our minute-by-minute updates which featured the expert analysis of elite athlete and coach Mark Buckingham.

Start times and rules

First up were the heats, with the top ten qualifying for the women’s and men’s finals.

All the action takes place indoors – the swim is four lengths of the 50m Olympic pool, the bike is 4km ridden on Zwift (via the athletes’ own bikes on Tacx NEO 2T smart trainers, though with drafting turned off here, unlike Munich) and the run is 1km on a self-powered curved treadmill, again linked to Zwift.

In the heats, athletes race twice and both stages are in swim-bike-run format, with the second having a pursuit-style start based on times from the first.

The top four in the two heats plus the next two fastest go through to the finals where there will be three stages, the second of which mixes things up with a run-bike-swim format.

Get up to speed

It’s exciting – but brutal – short format racing, perfect viewing and we’ve given you the inside track this week with a number of Arena Games features:
