ITU, Sets Up Points for Best Swimmer, Biker and Runner

Frodeno, Riveros Diaz Lead New ITU Best Runner Rankings

Swim, Bike and Run all have new meaning, you can tear it up in the swim and bonk on the next two events or swim leisurely and crush on the bike or last take it easy and rip it up on the run. Hey the ITU is giving point to the fastest in each discipline.
Vancouver, 6 July 2010 - New for 2010, ITU has introduced segment rankings, which will reward the best swimmer, biker and runner throughout the Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Series. Athletes will be able to score points at each of the seven Series events, with the crown of best swimmer, biker or runner being awarded after the Grand Final in Budapest. In total, $60,000 in segment rankings bonuses will be awarded at the end of the season ($10,000 per gender, per each discipline).
