Ranking & Directors choice selections to ÖTILLÖ, The Swimrun World Championship 2021
For the 2021 World Championship, our 15th, the amount of applications was bigger than in several years. The cancellation of the 2020 World Championship and a majority of the 2020 season added to the final mix.
The ranking selection has been based on the reinstated 2019 points and the acquired points in 2020. We have also added the spots that came available from the cancelled World Series events that carried direct qualification spots to the 2021 World Championship.
In total we have selected 69 teams via ranking of which 42 are men, 21 are mixed and 6 are women teams. This distribution between the categories is based on the percentage of applications we get per category.
For the Directors choice applications we had a massive number of applications to the spots available. Again, the distribution between the categories is based on the percentage of applications we get per category. In total we have selected 11 men, 7 mixed and 3 women teams.
Once again we can only ask all women racers to apply to both the Ranking and to the Directors Choice selections in the future so we can get a more even distribution between the categories.
Below you will find all the teams selected. You will get an email asking you to confirm your spot. At that point we will publish your team in the start list or pass your spot on to the next in line.
Now the only way to take part of ÖTILLÖ, The Swimrun World Championship will be through direct qualification at one of the World Series races before the end of August.
Congratulations to the teams selected and see you on September 6th for an epic experience!
Thank you for your trust!
