Trifecta: The New Fantasy Triathlon Game

Screen Shot 2014-04-02 at 3.30.35 PMTRIFECTA, a new triathlon fantasy game allows fans to predict the elite men’s and women’s podium finishers at each ITU World Triathlon Series (ITU WTS) event. USAT and ITU have collaborated on creating the platform and TRIFECTA players can follow the events live on triathlonlive.tv and points will be awarded for correctly predicting podium finishers.

Register to create an account  at trifecta.usatriathlon.org and select your podium picks for the ITU World Triathlon Series opener in Auckland, New Zealand this Saturday April 5th and Sunday April 6th. Players who select all three podium finishers in the correct order will receive a 20 point TRIFECTA bonus. Individual player results will be made available following each race, and players can see how they stack up against others on a Global Leaderboard. The standings will accumulate throughout the season, with an overall winner being crowned following the ITU World Triathlon Series Grand Final in Edmonton, Canada.

“TRIFECTA is a fun and exciting way for American triathlon fans to engage in the World Triathlon Series, and for all triathlon enthusiasts worldwide,” said Marisol Casado, ITU President and IOC Member. “USA Triathlon’s initiative to develop the fantasy game is a phenomenal example of how National Federations can use the World Triathlon Series to engage their membership in the sport of triathlon.”

“TRIFECTA enables the greater triathlon community to engage in the World Triathlon Series, which features fiercely competitive swims, mastery of the chaos of transition, tight draft-legal bike racing and sprint finishes,”said Rob Urbach, USA Triathlon CEO.
