Yokohama triathlon rescheduled

Kyodo

The Yokohama race of the triathlon world championship series that had been postponed in the aftermath of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami will be held Sept. 18 and 19, the Japan Triathlon Union announced Monday.

Yokohama was originally scheduled for May 14 and 15 before the ITU decided to postpone the event last month in light of the nuclear power plant crisis in Fukushima Prefecture.
