Havana.- The largest Antillean Island will host the 11th Central American and Caribbean Triathlon Championship this year, replacing Puerto Rico that was the original venue.

Cuban triathlon officials said they expect 150 athletes from most countries in the region to participate in different categories.

According to experts, it will be the last tournament for the region’s competitors before the Pan-American Games in the Dominican Republic in August.

The Cuban Triathlon Federation is holding talks with the International Triathlon Union (ITU) to have the elite competition to grant points for the world championship, which is the main event to be taken into consideration to choose the 50 men and 50 women who will participate in the Olympics.

The call to the event includes athletes from nine to 75 years of age, as part of a multi-sports festival opened to triathlon athletes from other regions.

    Can U.S. Citizens legally participate? I do not intend to violate any U.S. laws just to participate in a competition.
