WTCS Hamburg is the final major short-course triathlon event ahead of the Olympic Games triathlon at Paris 2024, but which medal contenders will toe the line in Germany?

The showdown at this iconic venue is set for just over two weeks out from the biggest dance of all in France, so we expect some stars to opt for one last tune-up, while others will wrap themselves in cotton wool in a bid to ensure they arrive in Paris in top shape.

As ever with elite triathlon, initial start lists come with a health warning and are subject to change, nothing is absolutely guaranteed. But as of now, let’s find out who is down to race.


Elite Women Start List

Plenty of interest here if the names on this start list rock up, with a potential Paris dress rehearsal pitting gold medal favourites Beth Potter and Cassandre Beaugrand against each other.

Two more British stars still hoping to make the plane to Paris are also listed to race – Sophie Coldwell and Kate Waugh. Meanwhile the United States have a pair of stars who just missed out on selection for France – 2016 Olympic champion Gwen Jorgensen and 2021 bronze medal winner Katie Zaferes.

Also on the start is German star Lisa Tertsch, an excellent second to split Beaugrand and Potter in Cagliari last month.

The absentees meanwhile are headed by Bermuda’s defending Olympic champion Flora Duffy, along with US star Taylor Spivey.
