The best elite short-course women triathletes in the world will start the countdown to Paris 2024 when they take part in the Test Event in the French capital this week. However there will be some superstars missing from the field.

Defending champion Flora Duffy was among the stars on the start list revealed by World Triathlon as Paris plays host to a dress rehearsal ahead of next summer’s swim/bike/run extravaganza. However on Wednesday she announced that she is not quite ready to return yet from a long-term knee injury. Another non-starter is British star Olivia Mathias.

Home favourite Cassandre Beaugrand will head a very strong French challenge, while Britain’s Beth Potter and American Taylor Spivey should also be very much in the mix.

What time does the race start?

The Elite Women get their race under way at 0800 local time (CET) on Thursday August 17. That is 0700 in the UK or 0200 EST on the East Coast of the United States. If you are following the race on the West Coast, it gets under way at 2300 PST on Wednesday August 16.

How to watch the race on live stream or TV

If you are in the UK, check local listings for coverage from the Olympic broadcaster the BBC (via BBC main channels, iPlayer, red button and website).

In the United States the Olympic broadcaster is NBC so again check local listings for coverage in that region.

You can of course also sign up for World Triathlon’s ‘Triathlonlive.tv’ service to watch all the events as they happen.

What is the distance for the Paris Test Event?

The Elite Women will race over the Olympic distance – that is 1.5km swim, 40km bike and 10km run.
