TRIATHLON

A triathlon involves the completion of three continuous and sequential endurance disciplines: swimming, cycling, and running in immediate succession, and is practised in a natural environment. The swim takes place in open water (lakes, swamps, beaches or rivers), in a route delimited by buoys. In cycling, the athletes can’t receive any outside help (breakdowns, communications). The area where athletes switch from swimming to cycling and cycling to running is called transition area. The triathlete who reaches first the finish line is the winner of the competition.

This sport was born in the early 70s, when San Diego’s Athletics Club started practicing triathlon as a training method applied to athletics: 1 km running, 8 km cycling and 500 m swimming.
