UIPM 2018 WORLD BIATHLE/TRIATHLE CHAMPIONSHIPS: EGYPT LEAD THE WAY
SAHL HASHEESH, EGYPT: October 29, 2018 – A diverse cross-section of the global UIPM Sports community gathered in Egypt for the UIPM 2018 World Biathle/Triathle Championships, where 17 nations enjoyed medal success.
The host nation, Egypt, and their continental rivals South Africa may have dominated the medal table, but less established countries such as Nepal, India and Greece also took home a physical reward for their developmental progress.
In all, 11 nations from Africa, Asia and Europe tasted gold during the four days of action in the Red Sea resort of Sahl Hasheesh, with countries such as Burkina Faso and Cyprus also taking part in the competition.
The development programme in Egypt has produced impressive results throughout the year and this progress was evident throughout the championships.
Multiple successes were enjoyed by Great Britain, Kazakhstan, the Czech Republic, Germany, Spain and Ukraine with gold medals also won by Greece, Portugal and Georgia.
Biathle (run-swim-run) and Triathle (swim-run-shoot) are the two of the cornerstones of UIPM Sports development and the joint world championships has been growing in prominence since it was introduced in 2013.
