The ITU Executive Committee has held meetings for two days on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, prior to the ITU Triathlon World Grand Final, to discuss and decide issues of importance, including the 2019 competition calendar, the new services for the National Federations and the cities that will host the Grand Final 2021 and 2022.

After reviewing the tender of different cities interested in hosting the main events, the ITU Executive Committee has decided that the ITU 2021 Grand Final will take place in Bermudaand Abu Dhabi host the 2022 Grand Final. The Committee also discussed the 2020 edition of the Multisport Championships, and decided to honor Almere, in the Netherlands.

"I am really satisfied with the intense work that we have done, especially with regard to two main aspects for our future as an organization: the cities interested in organizing one of our main events and development programs, and the way we work with the Federations Nationals so that our sport continues to grow to take it to a new level of participation and commitment”Said Marisol Casado, ITU President and IOC Member.

"I am very confident that with the work done over the past year, and the commitment of all ITU Committee members and staff, we will continue to push our organization to a new level.

We have more presence and influence now in the Olympic and Paralympic movement, our financial condition is good, we are still a model of good management and we have our Strategic Plan in practice. We are also paving the way for the coming years, therefore, we can proudly affirm that 2018 has been an excellent year in every way for us."He added.

The Committee knows that the three Organizing Committees that will carry out the main events in the coming years - Bermuda, Abu Dhabi and Almere - will guarantee the level of excellence that these events require, and it is convinced that we will work together to keep our sport growing.

One of the main topics discussed at the Executive Committee meeting was the review of the competition structure for the coming years, trying to find a balance in the events in different parts of the world and extend the calendar to give as many opportunities as possible to that all athletes can compete near their continents.The Committee members also reviewed the 2019 calendar, which will be presented at the Congress.

The current environment is changing, so to ensure ITU's global leadership within the sports community, the Committee continued to work on good management practices and on the Strategic Plan for 2017-2020.

After receiving reports from the Continental Presidents on their activities in the past 12 months, the Committee also reviewed the newly created National Federations Services department, to establish and maintain continuous communication and build strong relationships with all National Federations, and to help members develop triathlon within their territories. A new concept of development events has been approved in this regard.

The Committee also approved the 2018 budget that will be presented for approval in Congress.
