Absolute success of the 3rd ISF Triathlon World Schools Championship 2017 which took place in Aracaju (Brazil) from the 6th to 12th of June. 2017 !
The Orla de Atalaia was the scene of one of the greatest demonstrations of clawing, resistance and once again proving the capacity of the state of Sergipe to host international school sport events. Boys and girls, from around the world aged between 14-18, swam, cycled, and ran surronded by the beautiful Brazilian environement.
Around fifty athletes were the main protagonists of this championship, which can already be considered as a milestone in the Brazilian school sport calendar.
Promoted by the International School Sport Federation (ISF), with the seal of the Brazilian Confederation of School Sports (CBDE) and the Sergipe Federation of School Sports (FSDE), the event was supported by the Federal Government through the Ministry of Sports, Government of Sergipe, through the Secretary of State for Sport, Leisure and Youth (Seel) and the Aracaju City Hall.
Hundreds of people were involved in the logistic aspects to support the event, from the reception of the delegations at Aracaju Airport, to the "Festa das Nações", the cultural meeting, where each country had the opportunity to share some of its culture, cuisine and traditions.
After the two intense days of competition, the athletes gathered at the edge of the beach of Atalaia, and participated in one of the most exciting moments of great environmental relevance, the release of sea turtles, preserved by the Tamar Project, which also added to the accomplishment of the event.
In the last few days, it was remarkable that each athlete gave his/her best. The joy of the Chileans, the strength of the French and the determination of the Hungarians, the smiles of the Brazilians, the persistence of the Germans, made the ISF WSC Triathlon an unforgettable moment of sport and education for the Sergipe population.
