ELITES

Elite athletes are not being selected via an event, championships and/or by the selection committee.   Elites are being ‘selected ‘ by means of their participation in the World Cup, World Cup Series and some European Cup events.  They therefore practically ‘select’ themselves  by earning sufficient points at the afore-mentioned events and as per the Worlds Champs Series points list the ITU will finally decide which athletes are on the start list.
