Today on the coast of the Caspian Sea the Final of the National Triathlon Cup was held. The standard distance event was attended by athletes from the Elite, U23 and U19 categories.
Aktau met the participants of the competition with a storm, which is why the start began 30 minutes later than the appointed time. The air temperature was 19 ° C, and the water was 17.7 ° C.
Elite and U23 men categories started the race first, but not all of them managed to complete it. Anaur Turubaev (Almaty) was disqualified by the judges for a wrong turn at the swimming stage.
