2019年 IRONMAN Taiwan 水温高于24.5度， 依规定无法开放穿着防寒衣，但大会考量到嵵里海流强劲，担心选手安全，最终于赛事说明会时公布选手可自行选择是否穿着防寒衣。
Q: Do you know the rule of the wetsuit in IRONMAN?
A:IRONMAN triathlon has very strict regulation of the use of a wetsuit. Whether wetsuit can be worn depends on the water temperature one day before race day and will be announced during the Race Briefing.
Wetsuit can be worn in water temperature below 24.5 °C and is prohibited in water temperature above 24.5 °C. An athlete using speedsuit that extends past the elbows or knees will be disqualified from the race, so make sure you check the competition rule before packing your gears!
The water temperature in 2019 IRONMAN Taiwan reached above 24.5°C and therefore according to the rule wetsuit is prohibited. Given that, however, the strong ocean current might cause danger to participating athletes, the announcement was made – athletes were able to decide whether to use a wetsuit, but those who did would not be eligible for age-group awards and any IRONMAN World Championship slots.
Only 1/3 of the participants of the 2019 IRONMAN Taiwan went for using went suit, showing a noticeable increase in water confidence over the past
Still nervous about swimming in open water even with a wetsuit on?
Well, the Flowing Lake in Taitung, aka the “giant swimming pool” is definitely a good place to start!
