The current edition of the Barcelona Garmin Triathlon, to be held this Sunday 6th October, promises to be one of the most competitive of the last few years, with a line-up of stars headed by Mario Mola, Alessandro Fabian, Matt Sharp and Marek Jaskolka, in the men’s category and Stimpson, Murua, Sanders, Routier and Godoy, in the women’s.

A triathlon is a multiple-stage competition involving the completion of three continuous and sequential endurance disciplines. While many variations of the sport exist, triathlon, in its most popular form, involves swimming, cycling, and running in immediate succession over various distances.
