Germany nearly won it all on the water after losing so much off of it. Only a 3-2 loss to Great Britain in the men's under-21 final prevented Germany from sweeping all four divisions at the 2018 International Canoe Federation Canoe Polo World Championships in Welland.
A triathlon is a multi-sport endurance event that combines successive swimming, cycling and running races. Athletes must train and be in top condition to endure the gruelling challenge of races such as Ironman Triathlon. The sport made its début at the Olympics in 2000 and comprised of a 1500 m swim, 40 km bike and 10 km run. Today, thousands of events are held worldwide each year and annually, at least one triathlon is held in Welland.
