The first World Triathlon esports World Champions were crowned on Saturday at the Arena Games Triathlon Finals Singapore powered by Zwift.

The series had started in Germany, then moved to London and the climax came in Singapore with the Grand Final.

There was drama aplenty in the women’s race – Jess Learmonth was forced out by injury when leading, Zsanett Bragmayer was the surprise winner on day but it was Beth Potter who emerged triumphant to claim that first world crown.

And the men’s race was a thriller as Hayden Wilde swooped to conquer but Alex Yee and Justus Nieschlag duked it out for the overall title.

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 with the heats – the day before this time – then the repechages and then our final 10 were determined.

And this time the action took place outdoors – rather than the 50metre, Olympic Games swimming pools of Munich and London, this weekend the swim legs were raced outside in the Marina Reservoir 1 of Marina Bay. The smart trainers and treadmills will be housed along the promenade.

The bike was still 4km ridden on Zwift (via the athletes’ own bikes on Tacx NEO 2T smart trainers, with drafting again turned off) and the run was 1km on a self-powered curved treadmill, again linked to Zwift.

The final was again three stages, the second of which mixes things up with a run-bike-swim format.

Getting up to speed

It’s exciting – but brutal – short format racing, perfect viewing ahead of Saturday’s IRONMAN World Championships at the other end of the distance spectrum and we gave you the inside track with a number of Arena Games features:
