Challenge Bahrain has attracted the greatest line up of world-class athletes ever seen over the half distance. This includes three of the best women on the ITU circuit – Jodie Stimpson (GBR), Erin Densham (AUS) and Nicky Samuels (NZ), all making their long course debut at Challenge Bahrain on December 6.
Dual Commonwealth Games champion Jodie Stimpson (GBR) will be lining up for her first taste of long distance racing. Stimpson has been one of the standouts in the World Triathlon Series this season, claiming wins in Auckland and Cape Town and finishing 4th on the ITU world rankings.
I am really excited about it and extremely nervous as well, but will be a fun challenge, said Stimpson.
