I am so excited to see 2018 WTS series tomorrow afternoon. (US local time.) Start lists for Abu Dhabi sprint are here. https://wts.triathlon.org/start_lists/2018_itu_world_triathlon_abu_dhabi
Who are your picks?
With Commonwealth Games so soon, I expect we'll see athletes near top form which should make for a great sprint race on a technical bike course.
On the Men's side, I pick J. Brownlee, "Young Jacob Birtwhistle", and Murray. I'd love to see Aaron Royle take it though since I am still bitter he was left off the AUS team. For a non-commonwealth athlete, I'll go with Blummenfelt. Those Norwegians were on fire at the Olympics so there must be something in the water.
On the women's side, I'll go with Duffy, Hewitt, and Holland. Although the people I'd love to see podium are Zaferes and Cook.
Also, does anyone know who is coaching Duffy now? I saw Henderson's tweet today and didn't know he was no longer her coach. Is her husband coaching her now?
