Video: 2015 ITU Sprint Triathlon Mixed Relay World Championships in Hamburg

While International Triathlon Union (ITU) is still lobbying for inclusion of Triathlon's Mixed Relay into furture Olympic Games all teams put the hammer down in Hamburg, Germany. Two female and two male triathletes build one team over this fast distance: 300m swim, 6k bike, 1,6k run. Hamburg, lobbying for Olympic Games 2024, saw again the future of triathlon on shorter distances with France winning, Australia in second and Great Britain in 3rd while host Germany lost Bronze while serving a 10 second penalty 100 meters ahead of the finish line.
