This is going to be a great addition to ITU racing, and (hopefully) an exciting addition to the 2012 Olympics. The format has been updated from previous relay events. Teams are now comprised of four athletes, two male, two female, who race in the following order: female, male, female, male. I can't think of another endurance sport that has a mixed relay at a major championship or major games - triathlon innovates again! Connor Hammond has been named to the team for the Team World Championships on June 28th - a great opportunity to line up against the worlds best, and gain experience. It should be an exciting race. Go Canada.
