British Triathlon unveils 2015 paratri funding

British Triathlon has announced its paratriathlon funding for 2015, underlining its core focus of winning medals in the sport’s Paralympic Games debut in Rio.


The list of podium and potential beneficiaries has been refined to triathletes whose disability category will be raced in Brazil. It is an expected move with the elite paratriathlon programme’s future funding resting on success in Brazil in 21 months’ time.

The categories selected mean strong British medal hopes, with two current world champions and three podium finishers from the ITU World Championships in Edmonton, Canada in September.
