Dear Ultra Triathletes,

The 2017 season is now behind us. It was a very emotional season with 14 competitions held in Europe and America.
A season of outstanding performance is no less than eleven new race record that has been established during this season. Among these records, two new world records must be highlighted: Alexandra Meixner on the Deca in continuous with a time of 250: 18: 49 h and the great performance of Robert Karas on the Emsdetten Double with a time of 19:44: 43 h. Naturally have not overlooked the victory of Richard Jung and Katrin Burow two formidable athletes on the world championship in Austria. At this World Championship we saw an emerging athlete even if the end was difficult; he still offered a performance during the bike portion with an average of over 35 km / h over 540 km which was remarkable but not enough to approach Luis Wildpanner's record. But who knows with a better control of the effort maybe we will have a new record fallen next year.
In total, more than 260 athletes took the start of the various competitions, which led us to crowned our Champions Shanda Hill and Konstantinos Zemandanis in a tight World Cup competition throughout the championship year which was decided in the last event of 2017.
