SUPER LEAGUE TRIATHLON BEATS RIVALS ZWIFT AND ITU FOR GAMECHANGER OF THE YEAR AWARD
19th December, 2018
Did the game need changing? Absolutely and without question it did, so we went about getting it done. Super League Triathlon (SLT) is Game Changer Of The Year 2018 as awarded by 220 Triathlon. Like Twenty20 did to cricket, the SLT team led by co-founders Michael Dhulst, Chris McCormack, and Leonid Boguslavsky continue to push the boundaries on transforming triathlon into a global spectator sport that is both highly addictive and unpredictable – and it finally paid off with acknowledgement from one of the sports most respected publications!
“Super League has taken the traditional swim/bike/run format and turned it on its head, to provide an all-out, give-it-your-all-and-then-some multisport spectacle for the digital age. With this Series, co-founder Chris McCormack has moved triathlon up several levels, beloved of athletes, spectators, and media alike, and we can’t wait to see how far he can go with it. If nothing else, the Short Chute should feature in ALL televised triathlons!” 220 Triathlon
220 TRIATHLON GAME CHANGER OF THE YEAR
- Super League
- ITU Mixed Relays
Beating two of the sports most popular innovations to the award made the achievement even more special. Moving forward, we will continue to lead the way in disrupting the sport, and bringing in a new golden era of triathlon viewership.
With features like the Short Chute animating the competition, and new formats always in development, the action is non stop, and produces some of the most exciting racing triathlon has ever seen.
Co-Founder Chris “Macca” McCormack knew which moment, for him, summed up the dynamic nature of the series throughout the first few races.
“The execution of the Short Chute in the final run leg of the Mallorca Sprint Enduro between Luis and Brownlee was incredible. The simple fact that we had no idea who was going to win the race and the element of unpredictability was in full swing.”
This is just the start, and success only comes when Super League elevates triathlon to the echelons of spectator sport in our industry, and becomes one of the most viewed events on the planet. The game was changed by us, and we’ll continue driving it forward – Game on for 2019!
