Unfortunately due to a lack of support, two Continental Cups have been cancelled and have now been taken off the 2008 calendar.
The Ponce Pan American Cup in Puerto Rico scheduled for April 27 will not be staged this year.
Additionally, the Israeli Triathlon Association has cancelled the 2008 Eilat Premium European Cup and the ETU Junior European Cup scheduled for November 22 due to budget difficulties.
The federation hopes to stage an event in 2009.
Last year Eilat hosted the final stop of the BG Triathlon World Cup series which was won by Nicola Spirig of Switzerland and Hirokatsu Tayama of Japan.
