On Thursday 7 June 2018, a packed crowd witnessed Team USA take the gold ahead of Great Britain at the inaugural Accenture World Triathlon Mixed Relay Nottingham. 19 international quartets had decended on the city, all racing in search of Olympic qualification points as part of the World Triathlon Mixed Relay series, just two days before they headed north to take on the British leg of the ITU World Triathlon Series in Leeds.
Over 200 Age-Group and GO TRI first time triathletes also got their blue carpet moment earlier in the day after taking on the course that involved a swim in the River Trent, before racing around Victoria Embankment on both bike and foot. Results from 2018 can be found here.
