Triathlon is a relatively new sport that consists of running, swimming, and cycling. Its origins date to the 1970s when the first major triathlon, the Ironman Race, was first held in Hawai’i. Triathlon is governed by the International Triathlon Union (ITU) which was created in 1989 in Avignon and recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on 3 September 1994 at the IOC session in Paris. As of 2018 the ITU has 140 member nations.
Triathlon first appeared on the Olympic Program at the 2000 Olympic Games, with two events – one for men and one for women. The Olympic triathletes race over what was already known as the “Olympic distance”, – 1,500 metre swim, 40 km cycling, and 10 km running.
