Chiba City Triathlon Outline
On October 16 (Sunday) from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, participants will watch a paratriathlon.
A triathlon is a competition in which athletes compete in a combined swim, bike, and run time, making full use of equipment.
The following is a quote from the Parasapo website.
The triathlon consists of a swim, bike, and run in succession, and was newly added as an official event at the 2016 Rio Games. The sprint distance (0.75 km swim, 20 km bike, and 5 km run) is half of the Olympic standard distance, and the total time is competed in the sprint distance. The competitors are classified according to the type and level of disability, and include seated, standing, and visually impaired athletes. The Tokyo event will feature four events each for men and women.
Points of Interest
The “transition” from swim to bike and from bike to run is also called the “fourth event” because the time is added to the time. In the Paralympic Triathlon, the equipment used in each disability class is different, and there are various aids to be put on and taken off, so it is easy for individual differences to emerge. In addition, depending on the class, teamwork is also essential, as the athletes are supported by “handlers” and “guides. The transition area, where you can watch the athletes in action and cheer them on up close, is also a recommended place to watch the races.
