Olympic Triathlon (Mixed Relay)

August 4 @ 11:00 pm 11:30 pm PDT

The mixed team event for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games features teams of four (two men and two women). Each athlete performs a triathlon of 300 m (980 ft) swim, 6.8 km (4.2 mi) cycle, and a 2 km (1.2 mi) run in a relay format.

The triathlon race format at the Olympics consists of a 1500 m swim, a 40 km cycle and a 10 km run. There are no heats – the competition is a single race in which the first team to cross the finish line is the winner, a feat requiring versatility and skill.

The World Cup series began in 1991, with eleven races contested in eight different countries. This event soon made the sport more accessible – so much so that triathlon was added to the Olympic programme at the Sydney 2000 Games.
