WORLD TRIATHLON ATHLETE SCHOLARSHIP

Project Goal
The primary objective of the World Triathlon Athlete Scholarship Programme is to identify and provide support, resources and expertise to athletes from developing/emerging National Federations (NF Group 1, 2, 3) with the greatest need to compete at Continental and World level over the Olympic Qualification and help their preparation and qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and beyond.

Project Outline
Athletes selected for the World Triathlon Athlete Scholarship Programme will be carefully ‘placed’ in a programme commensurate with their specific needs in the interest of their progressive development to an elite level. Placements will vary in duration and form depending on the specific outline of the programme developed by the NF in conjunction with the World Triathlon Development deemed to be conducive to the athlete’s development needs.

Target Group
The target group will be athletes from developing National Federations (NF Group 1, 2, 3) who have already shown competence at a Continental and World level and are looking to make the step up to top-level training and racing but need the support to do so. These athletes should be seen as Olympic prospects (Tokyo 2020 & Paris 2024) by their National Federation. The athletes will be drawn primarily from U23 and Elite ranks, but junior athletes can also be considered as part of the next generation for the future.
