London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) August 30, 2013
Jonny and Alistair Brownlee will square off at the PruHealth ITU World Triathlon Grand Final in London on September 15 to determine the 2013 triathlon champion.
Leading up to the main event, the entire weekend from September 11-15 will be a celebration of the sport, as Trafalgar Square will be transformed into Triathlon Square. Visitors will enjoy the opportunity to visit the live triathlon site and try out all three elements of the sport.
After a successful 2012 Olympic campaign in Hyde Park where attendees were able to simulate a complete triathlon, with the help of a swim in the Endless Pool, the company will once again offer the chance for visitors to try their patented swim current.
“It was fantastic to be a part of the Olympic Games last year in London and have so many visitors get a feel for the Endless Pool,” said head of UK sales John Lee. “We’re just as excited this year to be involved in the biggest triathlon event of the year.”
Visitors will be able to swim in an Endless Pool, cycle on a stationary bike and run on a treadmill to simulate a full triathlon and get a taste of what the greats in the sport will put on full display Sunday.
For the Brownlee brothers, who are separated by just 55 points in the standings, the stakes are high as the two will retrace the 2012 Olympic course in Hyde Park.
While several scenarios are in play for the finale, if one of the brothers crosses the finish line first, they will be crowned series champion for the season.
Alistair, who is the frontrunner heading into the race, has trained in an Endless Pool in his garden, both swimming and utilizing an underwater treadmill.
The elder of the brothers was able to rehab from a potentially catastrophic Achilles injury to win Gold in the 2012 London Olympics.
For years, triathletes worldwide have utilized the Endless Pool, for
