  1. Who is competing in Singapore and who can win the Super League Triathlon?

    Jonny Brownlee will be making the trip to Singapore as the sole male Great Britain representative. The 28-year-old currently lies fourth in the overall Super League Triathlon standings and will be hoping for a successful weekend in Asia to claim an overall podium place.

    The top five in the overall male standings will all be competing over the weekend and will be hoping to end the season on a high before the Elite Series Triathlon starts in March.

    Male standings

    Jodie Stimpson - who is currently fifth in the overall standings - is missing this weekend's event. Second and third place Kirsten Kasper and Rachel Klamer are also sitting out.

    American Katie Zaferes, who takes a massive 27-point lead in to the race, is expected to tie up the 2018/19 Super League Triathlon crown this weekend.

    Lucy Hall will be competing as the sole GB athlete.

  2. I wasn't at my best last year - Jonny Brownlee

    Jonny Brownlee says he has prepared well for the heat and humidity of Singapore by training for more than a week in Thailand ahead of the Super League Triathlon season decider.

    "I’ve been out in Phuket for 10-11 days getting used to the heat, which I think is going to be a big factor on Sunday in the Enduro format," he said. "Hopefully I’ve prepared for that as well as anyone else."

    Brownlee described last season as "my worst year in a long time" because of the numerous injury problems he suffered.

    "Last year I was definitely not at my best," he said. "I was never on the start line looking forward to racing – I was always worried about something.

    "You get your confidence from your training. For the first time in longer than 12 months I’ve been able to do that."

    Double points being on offer means Brownlee is one of the athletes that can still edge out runaway leader Vincent Luis.

    "Vincent's been really impressive so far – this Super League format really suits him," said Brownlee, currently in fourth place.

    "But for the first time in a long time I’ve got some decent training in – I’ve been healthy and hopefully that will help bridge the gap."

  4. Jonny prepares for soaring temperatures

    Temperatures in the mid-thirties are forecasted in Singapore across the weekend and Jonny Brownlee has been doing some warm weather training at home in Leeds in preparation for the conditions.

    Brownlee said: "I'm not very good in the heat, as people have seen before.

    "At home I've got a conservatory, which I have converted into a heat chamber. I've put a heater in there - I can get it to 30 to 35 degrees. Hopefully by the time I get to Singapore, I'll be ready for the heat."

    Relieve the iconic moment when Jonny's brother Alistair helped him over the line in a dramatic end to the Triathlon World Series in Mexico back in 2016.

  5. What is the eliminator race?

    The Eliminator tests the resilience, stamina and velocity of the athletes in a pressure-cooker format where field position proves key over timing. Athletes must finish high enough to not be eliminated whilst managing their effort against fatigue. Three stages of traditional swim-bike-run whereby athletes need to hold their ground and watch their backs in each stage to be eventually crowned as the most tenacious and tough athlete on the Super League Circuit.

    STAGE 1 – 300m Swim- 5km Bike- 2km Run (10-minute break)

    STAGE 2 – (Top 15 finishers from Stage 1) 300m Swim- 5km Bike- 2km Run (10-minute break)

    STAGE 3 – (Top 10 finishers from Stage 2) 300m Swim- 5km Bike- 2km Run

  7. Get Inspired: How to get into Triathlon

    #GetInspired

    Like running, swimming or cycling? Fancy doing all three, one after the other? If you answered yes to the previous two questions then triathlon is the sport for you!

    The Olympic distances are a 1.5km swim, followed by a 40km cycle, rounded off with a 10km run. But don't feel daunted, it really is for everybody, as 63-year-old Grandma Sue Faulkner proved in 2015!

    The sport has a range of distances and formats to cut your teeth on, and as long as your daily exercise includes all three disciplines, you can call yourself a triathlete with pride.
