Carey Olsen To Sponsor WTS Bermuda Triathlon

March 7, 2020

Carey Olsen Bermuda is an Official Partner of the International Triathlon Union’s [ITU] World Triathlon Series in Bermuda.

The World Triathlon Bermuda takes place on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 April, and will now be the first installment of the 2020 World Triathlon Series following last week’s decision by the International Triathlon Union and the Abu Dhabi Sports Council to postpone this year’s first event in Abu Dhabi as a protection measure against the spread of the coronavirus. This year’s World Triathlon Series is scheduled to culminate with the seventh and final stage in Edmonton, Canada in August.
