The ITU Sprint Distance Triathlon World Championships, were a triathlon championship held over half of the Standard distance, that is 750 m swim, 20 km bicycle and 5 km run. The inaugural championships were held in 2010, and organised by the International Triathlon Union. In 2011 the championship was held as an event as part of the 2011 ITU World Championship Series. However for every year after 2011 multiple sprint events where held as part of the ITU World Triathlon Series and no delineation was made between them and so no title has been awarded at the elite level. Currently only a sprint world championship for age group competitors and is held on the same day as the grand elite final of the World Triathlon Series .
