Program Description and Athlete Qualification

  

We’re looking to give athletes who have proven themselves in their respective individual sports an opportunity to excel on the multi-sport world stage. Our program supports athletes who have the unique combination of talent, work ethic, and determination that will carry them through the challenging process that leads to winning, or contributing to Team USA winning, an Olympic gold medal.

  

Our Talent ID program supports and funds the development and progression of athletes who qualify for selection with a world leading time standard in one discipline and an Olympic Development Potential (ODP) time in another discipline; 2x International time standards in any two disciplines; or 1x international and 1x national standard if you are under 20yrs old.

  

If you are a swimmer, cyclist, runner, or brand new to triathlon and meet (or are very close to meeting) the qualifications below, please email a short bio, your age, and verifiable time trial data or race results to CRP@USATriathlon.org to learn more about how the selection process works how our Talent ID Program can best help guide you in getting started on the Olympic Development path.
