Triathlon to get UFC-style makeover
A new global triathlon series is set to kick off in Jersey next month is to get a UFC style makeover.
The event, supported by some of the sport’s leading athletes – including Great Britain’s Brownlee brothers – as well as a major corporate backer in Royal Bank of Canada. Super League Triathlon’s sportainment-driven concept takes elements from other new and updated sports formats, among them T20 cricket and UFC. The new property is the brainchild of three men from three very different backgrounds: Belgian businessman Michael D’Hulst, Russian investor Leonid Boguslavsky and Australian two-time Ironman World Champion Chris “Macca” McCormack.
