Where are the world triathlon championships for 2021?

What is the last event in a triathlon?
Triathlon events occur in that order – a swim, followed by a cycle ride, followed by a run. Between swim and cycle event, and between cycle event and run, you have the “transition”, triathlon’s “fourth discipline”. A good transition routine shaves minutes off your time so practice in advance!
Is a triathlon harder than a marathon?
A marathon is a set distance but a triathlon varies. So let’s assume you mean a full Ironman triathlon- then the answer is easy: the triathlon is harder, due to the need to train 3 sports, with the run distance being the same as the stand alone marathon, but coming after a swim, and bike in the triathlon.
Can anyone do a triathlon?
This is a common statement non-triathletes make when they first learn about triathlons, or talk with a triathlete. And it’s a real shame, because anyone, yes anyone, can do a triathlon. There really are no prerequisites for it. The only thing you need is some time to prepare.

Why do they swim first in a triathlon?
Swimming is the most hazardous of the three sports from a safety perspective. Most casualties in Triathlons are during this leg for quite obvious reasons: if you stop swimming, you drown. It’s, therefore, best to avoid a risk of drowning from exhaustion and it makes a lot of sense putting the swim leg first.
How fast do Olympic triathletes run?
