British Triathlon’s talent identification (TID) campaign aims to find talented athletes that have the potential to become medallists at future Paralympic Games.
Saturday 17 April 2021 brings a great opportunity to any athletes with impairments who want to join the paratriathlon performance pathway with British Triathlon’s ‘Virtual Talent ID Day’.
Making its Paralympic debut on Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro, in 2016, paratriathlon is a sport that’s constantly growing. Talent ID is aimed at finding talented athletes that have the potential to become future medallists at Paralympic Games.
Taking place across three disciplines; swim, bike, and run/push, paratriathlon is an exhilarating blend of three sports in one that sees athletes compete on the international stage in a time trial format. The sport houses athletes with a variety of different strengths, creating thrilling racing as competitors try and gain the advantage over the opposition across each discipline.
British Triathlon’s ‘Virtual Talent ID Day’ on Saturday 17 April 2021 will take place between 10am – 1pm. This is the first time in the organisation’s history that the TID journey will begin online, making the process more flexible and allowing for a greater number of athletes to engage with the sport.
On the day, athletes will learn about the sport, how the classification system and performance pathway work, and will have the chance to meet with other athletes who are already making their way through the pathway.
