On December 11, 2010, IPC announced that paratriathlon was officially accepted into the Paralympic Games. Paratriathlon made its Paralympic debut at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Paralympic Games. At the Rio Games, USA Paratriathlon earned 4 medals, including a podium sweep in the PT2 category. USA Paratriathlon looks to build upon this success as the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games approach. 


USAT has many of the greatest elite paratriathletes the world has ever seen.

Just like the rest of USA Triathlon, there are paratriathletes of all levels: beginners all the way to competitive racers. Although paratriathletes have some additional needs and a slightly different set of rules that govern their races, they seek no extraordinary waivers or undue assistance that would set them apart from the field. In fact, it is their ability to compete at every USAT sanctioned race that makes them a vibrant part of the USAT family.
