I noticed when trying to find the next upcoming triathlon that some of the dates are formatted in the American style (mm/dd/yy) and some as in Europe and elsewhere (dd/mm/yy). The sort function on the table appears to assume the American format — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:45, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

Column headers on table[edit]

I have made a couple of changes to the table, but 2 others seem very necessary.

The phrase "Australian exit" is used as a header, but is not explained in the text, nor in the main Triathlon article. I have read elsewhere to get an idea of what it is, but someone who knows the event better than I would describe it more confidently.

The columns to indicate the amount of climbing on the cycling and running legs do not have units, which renders the numbers in those columns meaningless.

The entire table is also unsourced, so one has no idea whether the info about laps is consistent year after year, or whether it refers to the course on one particular year, but we are not told when. Kevin McE (talk) 11:57, 9 September 2018 (UTC)
