World Triathlon Pre Participation Examination (PPE)

World Triathlon Pre Participation Examination (PPE)

Starting in 2018, all athletes competing in World Triathlon competitions in Junior, U23, Elite, and Elite Paratriathlon categories must have completed a pre-competition health screening which includes a questionnaire, a physical examination, and an ECG following the IOC's recommended procedure. Thereafter, all Junior, U23, Elite, and Elite Paratriathlon athletes, competing in World Triathlon competitions must complete the medical questionnaire and undergo a medical examination each year, and in addition, must undergo a resting ECG every two years. 

Please click here for the Medical Questionnaire and click here for the PPE certification. 

The screening takes place in three steps:

  1. Answer the Medical Questionnaire: this questionnaire is strictly confidential and must be given to the doctor before the medical examination.
  2. Physical Examination: by the doctor following the IOC recommendations published in the "Lausanne Recommendations" about the Sudden Cardiovascular Death in Sport Consensus.
