Paratriathlon Virtual Combine

PARATRIATHLON VIRTUAL COMBINE

Calling all Paratriathletes! Are you or someone you know looking to be the next Team USA Paralympic hopeful? USA Paratriathlon is hosting a virtual combine to help find and recruit new talent. Starting May 1, athletes can complete two (2) combine tests and submit their results here.

COMBINE DETAILS

  • Athletes will have until May 31 to achieve their best verifiable metrics for the Virtual Combine Test:
    • 300yd Pool Swim (meters also acceptable, but please specify when submitting results) 
    • 800m Run – preferably on a track, but if not possible, verifiable GPS data on a flat 400m out and back road/path.

  • Athletes will submit individual times for both tests, but the goal is to have the fastest possible combined time you can achieve.

  • Athletes can submit their results (starting May 1, 2022) here: https://forms.gle/vuKD4uRVBBVwYvZw7. All submissions must be received by May 31, 2022.
  • If there are issues submitting via the form provided, please submit results to benchmark@usatriathlon.org

  • Only one submission per/athlete allowed, so please wait until you are happy with your results before submitting.

  • We do not want athletes to train specifically for this challenge, we want these to be completed at the athlete's own leisure as part of their normal triathlon training.

  • These results WILL NOT qualify any athletes for any national or development teamfunding, but the results may be considered for future camp opportunities.

 

WHY IS USAT HIGH PERFORMANCE HOSTING A VIRTUAL COMBINE?

To collect data to help identify future Paralympians, help guide future USA Paratriathlon goals, provide an outlet for goal setting and friendly competition outside of racing, and give athletes an opportunity to gauge and track their current fitness and prepare and sharpen for potential future racing opportunities.

 

These results are very helpful for the future of our Elite Paratriathlon development programs, so please spread the word and let's get as many athletes involved with this as possible!

 

Please note these results have no impact on current national team funding, they are specifically for the benefit of identifying and developing future USA Triathlon High Performance programs/athletes.
