Join the NZ Age Group team as they travel to the Gold Coast and Denmark for the Age Group World Championships in 2018.

 

It will be the second year Triathlon New Zealand sends a team to the Multisport Festival, this time hosted by Denmark. Australia will still be buzzing after the Commonwealth Games in April so we’ll be expecting a massive flow on effect from those games into the World Champs.
