Fiji triathletes braved the cold Auckland weather to compete in the final International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Triathlon Series in New Zealand. The national team took part in the individual events in the competition which included swimming in the Auckland Harbour.

Youngest Fiji representative, 15-year-old Lui Pene took part in the 300 metre swim, 5km bike and a 3km run solo event. Isikeli Rawlinson made his world junior championship debut in the junior men’s race and three Fijian athletes competed in the age-group races, the first time Fiji has sent a team to the ITU Age-Group World Championships.
