USA Triathlon takes anti-doping efforts very seriously on behalf of its constituents. Efforts in the U.S. – and around the world – to detect, deter and ultimately prevent doping in all sports are growing and affecting positive change for future generations of athletes.
All age-groupers who have done three or more sanctioned triathlons, or two or more duathlons, aquathlons, off-road triathlons or aquabike races are included in the annual age group rankings.
USA Triathlon views the safety of our members as a core imperative. Event-related fatalities have captured the attention of our community, raising safety concerns among athletes, family members and other supporters, event organizers, sponsors, community leaders, and the medical community. We have conducted a careful review of the collective experience with fatalities at USA Triathlon-sanctioned events from 2003 through 2011. Our objectives were to attempt to bring clarity, identify potential patterns and underlying causes, and investigate opportunities to make any future improvements in event safety.
