Calling for applications for the 2024 Team World Triathlon

With the aim set on the Paris 2024 Olympic Games and beyond, World Triathlon is pleased to announce that applications for the 2024 Team World Triathlon are now open, welcoming new team members.

The elite athlete development program, supporting Olympic Qualification, has been in operation since 2006. Previous editions have provided assistance to notable athletes such as Olympic Champion Flora Duffy and London Olympics silver medallist Lisa Norden, just to name a few. Thirty athletes have been members of Team World Triathlon, qualifying for one or more Olympic Games over the years.

The primary objective of the project is to provide support, resources, and expertise to athletes from emerging/developing National Federations (NF Group* 2, 3B, 3A) with the potential to compete at the World Triathlon Cup level and qualify for the Paris Olympic Games. Being only some months away from the end of the Paris Olympic Qualification Period (27 May 2024), the project will focus on the potential Olympic athletes for Paris 2024 until the end of May 2024.
(*Note: for NF Groups please visit National Federation Survey)

In 2024, two World Triathlon Cup events have been named as the Team World Triathlon events until the Olympic Qualification cut-off date (27 May 2024). These include Chengdu (China) on April 29, and Samarkand (Uzbekistan) on May 18.

In order to be eligible, athletes must have been born in 1994 or after. Athletes also must have the potential to be able to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games via one of the following qualification pathways:
      - Individual Olympic Qualification Ranking
      -  World Triathlon Ranking - Continental “New Flag”
      - Universality Invitational Place (IOC Tripartite Commission)

All athletes must be registered and in good standing with their National Federations, demonstrating the ability to race at a high level. The nominated athletes should be committed to long-term competition, with the ultimate objective of participating in the Olympic Games.

After the 2024 Paris Olympic Games Qualification period,  World Triathlon will release a Next Triathlon Generation - Team World Triathlon Programme for the Los Angeles 2028 Olympic Games & beyond in July 2024.

Applications must be submitted in writing to World Triathlon Development, and each applicant must be entered by their National Federation for the respective World Triathlon Cup event via the online entry method by the event’s closing date. If the National Federation fails to register the applicant on time, the application will not be considered.

Find the application form on the Team World Triathlon website. The deadline for application is February 26, 2024 (Chengdu) and March 25, 2024 (Samarkand).
