British Talent Squad
The Talent Squad caters for athletes in all six male and female categories and aims to support new athletes coming into the sport who demonstrate the potential to improve their performance level and potentially become part of the Performance Squad in the future. Athletes in the Talent Squad may be selected and supported to represent the Great Britain Team if they demonstrate a current performance level which is suitable and where it is deemed that their participation will be advantageous to both their personal development and to the Great Britain team.
The squad will cater for all categories as British Triathlon wish to support the full development of the sport across all categories as the sport continues to grow and also with a view to the potential for further categories to be represented at the 2024 Paralympic Games in Paris and beyond.
Squad sessions are residential and generally take place at the Performance Centre’s training HUB in Loughborough throughout the year. The aim is to support athletes in their home training environment and help them to develop both their skills and their physiological abilities. The athletes train together as their varying impairments allow and work together to improve their performance level across the disciplines. The British Paratriathlon Series is the primary focus for many of the Talent Squad where they get a chance to take on the athletes in the Performance squad.
The full British Talent Squad for 2019/20 is:
|PTWC||Joshua Lanmann||Georgina Lord|
|PTS4||Finley Jakes||Megan Richter|
