Paratriathlon

Triathlon Newfoundland & Labrador aims to see more athletes participating in the sport of Triathlon, including those racing as parathletes. Both nationally and internationally, there are many opportunities for athletes to take part in paratriathlon. In fact, the sport is making its Paralympic debut next year (2016) in Rio, Brazil. Our goal is to see those opportunities grow provincially.

The Paratriathlon representation at the board level of TriNL is a relatively new position. We are currently investigating ways to identify and assist those athletes already participating in the sport and also to help attract new athletes to the sport.

For more information on the classifications, rules, and regulations for Paratriathlon, please visit the following websites:

Also, athletes or prospective athletes (at any age level) should contact the TriNL Paratriathlon rep. Andy Poole at andypoole19@hotmail.com
