Does anyone have any thoughts on how the Commonwealth Games are going to unfold? Could be interesting to see how some South African athletes get on.

Cool

What ruleset are the games run under? I seem to remember that there was no branding allowed on the trisuits last year, so maybe has slightly different rules to the ITU?

they're run under ITU rules as all athletes competing will be familiar with these through other events they have taken part in. all the TOs come from Commonwealth countries and GB has 4 going.

as far as I am aware, tri kit will follow ITU uniform rules and not heard otherwise - if you want the minutae of these, here ya go! https://www.triathlon.org/uploads/docs/itusport_competition-rules_2018-UNIFORM-RULES-AND-PROCESS.pdf

Might be a team ruling on uniform logos rather than a competition rule. I suspect Team England have a contract with a supplier who don't want individuals to clutter up their kit.

As for the race. It is a sprint, which I think opens it beyond the Brownlees and Duffy. The Aussies should be strong, Birtwhistle in the men, Gentle in the women. Murray if he is targetting it, can be strong in sprints, and who knows how fit Stanford and Holland are?

The young Norwegian lad has been looking good as well. Blummenfelt (sp?)

Very Happy Good one GB

I reckon Jake Birtwhistle will be in with a fairly good shot at a podium at the Commonwealths. His notable recent podiums have all been over the sprint distance, and he fared well in the super short racing style of SuperLeague.
