Confirmed on the start list are all the leading men in the field. The Spaniards  Javier Gomez & Mario Mola,  Brit Jonathan Brownlee and South African Richard Murray.  Alistair Brownlee who has been in recent top form, but not earlier on this year, will be looking to dislodge some of the top contenders. Who will take the Stockholm crown and lead the way into Edmonton one week later?

Women’s race

Gwen Jorgensen (planned skip to concentrate on Edmonton) and Helen Jenkins (torn plantar fascia and now back in training on the bike) are not on the start list for Stockholm.  Jodie Stimpson (Commonwealth Games Winner) has a golden opportunity to grab some points and and get closer to Jorgensen ahead of the Grand Final in Edmonton.  But, she will have American Sarah Groff and the Canadian Kirsten Sweetland hot on her heels for that winners spot.  Not only will those two be battling with Stimpson but Italian Alice Betto and New Zealander Andrea Hewitt will also be pushing for podium slots.
