BTF announce selection policy for Paralympics

A potential two places are up for grabs in each of the paratriathlon categories: PT1, PT2, PT4 (men) and P2, P4 and P5 (women).


Athletes who have already won a medal at the 2014 and 2015 ITU Paratriathlon World Championships, and win a gold at WPE Buffalo City, WPE Yokohama or WPE Aguilas this year, will meet the automatic selection criteria.

As with the Olympic selection policy, which many considered to be particularly tough compared to other nations, the Paralympic policy “is about ensuring we send a very strong team that is capable of delivering medal winning performances,” said a spokesman for British Triathlon.
