Due to a minor hip injury, the Spaniard had to sit out the Mooloolaba World Cup and the Series opener in Sydney.

Gomez explains that he went to several doctors in Brisbane and Noosa to consult what he had. However, it was not conclusive. “It looks like it was a problem in the piriformis muscle. I missed a few weeks of training, especially run training, so my fitness will not be the best for Seoul.”

Gomez’s coach thinks that Seoul would be good to test his form. “I have no high expectations for race day and would just like to go out and enjoy the race. We are already thinking of Madrid. I want to be fit and ready to try to win there. After seven months without racing, it’s going to…

The opening race at the Dextro Energy Triathlon this Sunday will not have Olympian Courtney Atkinson in the roster of the men’s team for Australia. He was forced to step down from the competition due to his slow recovery from a virus.

On his website, Atkinson wrote the reasons for his pull out. “My recovery from the Mooloolaba World Cup wasn’t as good as expected and I had some unexpected complications ongoing from the illness I was carrying. It is a long season with 10-15 races planned over the next 5 months so this is a small hickup in a big year. I am so close to being 100% that it is such a hard decision not to race our home World Championship Race, but I think it is the right decision considering my aim is to Win the World Championship and 90% of that racing will be in Europe in…
