The second of three 2022 Arena Games Triathlon Series is set to return at the London Aquatic Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park tomorrow.

After the Munich event earlier this month, London 2012's swimming venue will play host to both the elite men's and women’s triathlon competitions.

The surprising absence of Belgium's Marten Van Riel and Britain’s Alex Yee from the Munich podium made for a dramatic start to the series.

Instead, France’s Aurelien Raphael took gold whilst Australia’s Max Stapley and Germany’s Justus Nieschlag took silver and bronze respectively.

Yee, who finished sixth in Munich, is looking for a return to form on home soil this weekend.

Japan’s Takumi Hojo, the winner of the European Triathlon Cup in Quarteira, and Portugal’s Ricardo Batista, the 2019 world junior champion, will also be vying for a win in London.

Britain's Beth Potter’s dominant win in Munich will undoubtedly place her in good stead for tomorrow's elite women's event.

However, the return of her compatriot and main rival Jessica Learmouth will help to make tomorrow's event a much more competitive outing.

The inclusion of two Tokyo medallists, Britain's Georgia Taylor-Brown and France's Cassandre Beaugrand, only add to the already crowded competitors list.

In fact, the first heat of the day will feature Potter, Taylor-Brown and Beaugrand racing together.

Learmonth will follow in the second heat.

Heats will begin at 10.00 AM in London tomorrow, with the finals scheduled to be held later in the day.

The Super League Triathlon's triple mix format is comprised of three fast stages that require athletes to complete a 200 metres swim in an Olympic pool followed by a 4 kilometres virtual bike leg and a 1-kilometre run, which is completed on self-powered curved treadmills.

The virtual cycle will see athletes use NEO 2T smart trainers, which will simulate a 4k circuit.  

In the heats, athletes will race twice with both stages following a swim-bike-run format.

Qualification for the finals will be achieved by the top-three finishers in each heat, plus the next two fastest athletes from across the two heats.

Athletes who qualify for the final will race three more times in a slightly altered format, which will see the second stage flipped to a run-bike-swim format.

The Arena Games Triathlon finals is scheduled to be held in in Singapore on May 7.
