Olympic Games Triathlon: Women’s start list, bib numbers

Chief Correspondent

The women’s triathlon at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games should be a terrific race early on Tuesday (late Monday in the UK), well worth the year wait caused by the COVID pandemic.

A galaxy of stars will assemble on the start line, bidding to take gold in the biggest sports show on earth.

Great Britain will send Jess Learmonth, Georgia Taylor-Brown and Vicky Holland into action knowing that all three have medal chances.

American Katie Zaferes will be among the favourites despite a troubled 2021 so far, while Bermuda’s Flora Duffy will bid to give her country a first ever Olympic gold medal.

Swiss superstar Nicola Spirig meanwhile bids to add to her impressive Olympic CV after claiming Gold in London in 2012 and Silver in Rio in 2016.
