Para Triathlon made its debut on the Paralympic programme at Rio 2016.
Athletes compete in three disciplines: 750m of Swimming, 20km of Cycling followed by a final 5km run.
For the Cycling section of the race, athletes may use a tandem bicycle, handcycle or bicycle, while a wheelchair may be used for the final 5km run to the finish line.
Rules ensure that athletes who have visual impairments can be assisted by a guide without giving the athletes any unfair disadvantages.
British athletes currently use the same classification system at both national and international level, which consists of six classifications.
However, due to para-Triathlon’s newly acquired status as a Paralympic sport, it is likely that over the next two years the sport will adapt the classification system in agreement with the ITU and the IPC.
