0 Have your say With the city eagerly braced to cheer on the world's most elite triathletes this weekend when the ITU World Triathlon Series Leeds makes its return, it's fair to say triathlon as a sport has well and truly broken out of the shadows. Returning to the city for a third consecutive year on June 9 and 10, the prestigious sporting event has proved to be a roaring success, with more than 70,000 spectators taking to the streets last year to get a glimpse of the action.While the huge crowds may have turned out in their droves to show their support to the local athletes taking part, including homegrown heroes Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, the growing interest in the sport as a whole can't be doubted - particularly here in Leeds."We have seen first-hand the growth of the sport locally and nationally, but the success of Leeds-based athletes and the World Series race has had a major part to play for developing the sports interest," says Steven Sims, coach at Leeds … [Read more...] about Why Leeds is a world class location for triathlon

Review: The annual Live at Leeds fest blossomed in the bright glare of the weekend sunshine with its best line-up of indie, alt rock, electro and acoustic acts to date - and some of its biggest crowds. A sizzlingly hot Saturday saw LaL wrist band holders spilling onto the city centre's pavements, some trying to get into packed out, sweltering venues, others trying to get out for the next gig in the next venue.There were so many great acts that even the most diehard of fans couldn’t hope to do more than scrape the surface of what was on offer in a golden day featuring more than 200 acts appearing in more than 20 different venues across the city.At noon, youngsters were still queuing politely outside The Wardobe to get into see the punky Idles even as the band were announcing their final song on stage downstairs.At 1pm in the cool of Belgrave Music Hall’s upstairs gig room, a three-piece dressed in black from Glasgow called Lovesick impress with their sparse,electronic soul, … [Read more...] about Live at Leeds: Swedish band steal the show!
