The first edition of a new series of World Triathlon Development webinars will take place on Thursday 28 May at 10am CET, with an in-depth look at recommendations for returning to training following the lockdown period in many parts of the world.
Australia’s two-time World Champion and World Triathlon Hall of Fame inductee Emma Carney and World Triathlon Coaching Facilitator and ASICS World Triathlon Team Coach Vicent Beltran of Spain will share their thoughts and advice on returning to training as lockdown restrictions are gradually lifted. There will be a maximum of 100 pre-registered participants for the Zoom-based webinar, and the event can also be followed as it happens on TriathlonLIVE.tv.
“The lockdown period has challenged individuals in many different ways,” said Beltran. “Some countries have applied stricter measures, others have been more flexible, but either way, this unexpected scenario has brought with it a new “normality”. It is vital for coaches and athletes to understand the performance side-effects that lockdown has caused and to focus on the individuals’ needs in training, aiming to meet those specifics as well as to be prepared for whatever comes next. With our first webinar, we want to provide further support and guidance for coaches and athletes as they begin the return to full training.”
