Triathlon

Triathlons bring together the three most popular disciplines – swimming, cycling and running – into a single test. Athletes need to move seamlessly from one leg to another, not only showing good coordination but also great conditioning capacities, including strength and stamina. A completely different set of skills must be mastered for each of the three sports included in the race.

In this discipline, the athletes’ diet and nutrition are of the utmost importance, especially in the more challenging distances, because having a good supply of carbohydrates and the ability to build muscle (anabolism) are necessary and essential conditions for good results.
