News & Notes
RESIDENCY PROGRAM FOR PARATRIATHLETES UNVEILED
USA Triathlon announced Oct. 20 that it will open its first-ever Paratriathlon Resident Athlete Program at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs starting in April of 2018. The program will be the fifth Paralympic resident sport program to call the Colorado training site home, and will remain in operation through the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.


Eight athletes will be selected to train in the program and will have full access to all Olympic Training Center amenities, including nutritional counseling from on-site certified nutritionists, sports science testing and sports psychology sessions. Athletes will have the option to live on the OTC campus or in privately owned residences off-complex.


All resident athletes will have the chance to participate in community out-reach activities. Athletes selected will also be eligible to receive financial support to compete in national and international competitions as they work toward qualification for the 2020 Paralympic Games.
