Medical Services

During the races of the Europe Triathlon Long Distance Championships, the Medical Service takes care of all athletes and volunteers. There is a central medical post in the theatre (Kunstlinie Almere Flevoland) on the Esplanade, but there are also various mobile posts (by car, by motorbike and by bike) to support athletes as soon as possible if something happens during the swim, bike or run. We always work in teams per medical post, consisting for example of 1 doctor and 1 nurse/doctoral assistant/physiotherapist.
