About the Triathlon
Despite only being ‘invented’ in the 1970s, triathlon has quickly risen in popularity, securing its status as one of the world’s most iconic endurance events - which at this Youth Games starts and concludes at Buccoo Beach Facility, Tobago.
Triathlon requires its competitors to become masters of three very different endurance disciplines, making it one of the most physically demanding events in world sport.
The race begins with an open water swim and transitions into a cycle race, before finishing with a lung busting run to the end. The first across the finish line wins.
