Triathlon At The Olympics

As a triathlete myself, I can’t wait to watch the Olympics. They are home to great battles and a fantastic opportunity to show the sport to a broader audience.

Triathlon has been present at the Olympic Games since 2000 in Sydney. The distance for the individual races is 1.5 km swim, 40 km bike, and 10 km run. Since Tokyo 2020, a mixed relay is also present. 2 women and 2 men from the same country are each covering 0.3 km swim, 6.8 km bike, and 2 km run.

In most triathlon races, drafting on the bike is not allowed. However, for the Olympics (and the Elite races), drafting on the bike is allowed.

MEDALS PER COUNTRY

Great Britain is currently the nation with the most medals (8 in total: 3 Gold, 3 Silver, and 2 Bronze), followed by Switzerland and Australia with 5 medals.

As a French man, I really hope to see France higher in this ranking after the 2024 Olympics.

PARIS 2024 – TRIATHLON OLYMPIC GAMES

I am looking forward to seeing these triathlon races in my home country, France. Currently, there is not much information available about the events yet. According to the PARIS2024 website, we will have the two individual races and the mixed relay, which will start at the Pont d’Iéna in Paris.

TOKYO 2020 – TRIATHLON OLYMPIC GAMES

The 2020 Triathlon Olympic Games happened in Tokyo on July 26th and 27th, 2021, for the individuals and July 31st for the mixed relay.
