This weekend the Triathlon World Cup will be held in the Canadian town of Edmonton. Test that is part of the second scoring period of 2011 for the world ranking and that gives triathletes access to participate in the 2012 Olympic Games.
Among the favorites in the female category, we will have the presence of the Spanish Zuriñe Rodríguez who already made an excellent performance in the last event of the World Series, held in the Austrian town of Kitbüehel, achieving thirteenth position. Zuriñe will once again compete this weekend together with the current leader of the Series Ranking, Paula Findlay, who was also proclaimed the winner in the last edition of the Edmonton World Cup in 2007.
Accompanying Zuriñe and representing the Spanish Triathlon Team, we will have Jose Miguel Pérez and Ramón Ejeda in the Men's category. Both triathletes achieved first and second place on the podium last May in the Pan American Triathlon Cup held in the Colombian town of Guatape. This time they will face Canadian and double-time Olympic medalist Simon Whitfield, who already won in this event in 2002 and 2003, among other favorites of the event.
