of the Triathlon Races Delayed and then Suspended
The Triathlon races organized by Palermo’s
Iron Teams Polisportivo.
by Maurizio Primiero, “From early on Saturday morning, before the
races we had asked for the town’s police patrol to collaborate in
closing off the traffic. Repeatedly we urgently asked the need for them to
intervene, also because lots of cars were in the race circuits way.
continues Maurizio Primiero, caused a noticeable delay in the begining the
of event and was then even suspended.
The problem of
suspending the race had nothing to do with the race circuit itself but was
what was around it that caused the trouble.
“To over come the problem the Triathlons Organizers should have
created safety conditions even without the intervene of the town’s
police” says Vinci Pottino,
president of the Albaria’s
Windurfing Club and organizer of the
World Festival on the Beach. Vinci
Pottino went on saying “The people in charge of the Triathlons
organization should have prepared a race circuit in a more suitable way
like what was created for the World Festival on the Beach”.
town police’s inspector said “the part that the Albaria took place in
was impeccable while that of the Triathlon was not looked upon as suitable
by the Police”
