Michael D’Hulst, CEO and Co-Founder of SLT, added: “We have worked closely with JT right from the beginning and they have been a huge supporter of everything we are doing to bring this fantastic sport to a new, global audience. It would simply not happen without the super-fast fibre connectivity that JT has made available in Jersey. Our athletes love the welcome they receive when they come to Jersey and relish the challenges of racing on the tight and narrow course around the St Helier Waterfront. Super League Triathlon is fast paced racing at its most exciting and, with our partners at JT, we can share the atmosphere from this fantastic event to a global audience.”
