Parasports Summer Athletes to Watch | Jetze Plat I ParaTriathlon

Updated: Jul 2, 2019

Finally, winter is over (apart from for you lot down-under!) and sunny spring days have given us a glimpse of the summer of sport which lies ahead of us. Here we present athletes who have stayed hot, despite the cold, and that you need to keep an eye on in summer 2017.

JETZE PLAT I ParaTriathlon

The introduction of the Triathlon to the Paralympics in 2016 propelled Plat onto the world scene.

Dominating the race along the Copacana beach the Dutchman has carried that form into the early part of the season and leads the ITU Paratriathlon world rankings.

His closest contest for the title is expected to be countryman Geert Schippers who picked up silver in Rio, setting the stage for a Dutch showdown on home turf during the Grand Final in Rotterdam in September.
