Four-time Ironman world champion Chrissie Wellington and two-time Kona champ Normann Stadler have been named as the captains for Team Europe for the Collins Cup.

Modeled after gold's Ryder Cup, the Collins Cup (named in honor of Ironman founders John and Judy Collins) will feature a long-distance team competition between teams from the USA, Europe and the rest of the world ("Internationals"). Each team will feature six men and women (12 athletes in total). Eight of the team positions will be achieved by ranking with the final four spots determined by captain's selections.

The first event is slated for June, 2018.
