Olympic distance triathlons are exactly as per their description. The distance of the race is that which is used during the Olympics, which is a 1500 meter swim, a 40 kilometre bike and 10 kilometre run.
Training for an Olympic distance requires preparation and time. It is also great practice for athletes who are training for a longer event later in the season. Olympic distances are also known as “international distance”, “standard course”, or “short course”.
Olympic distance triathlons are not limited to those with prior experience, however much training, preparation and carefully planned workouts are necessary to prevent injury along the journey.
