The sport is on course to achieve its targets at the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2016, following good performances through 2013 and at the world triathlon grand final in London. There is strong depth on the women’s side of the sport and there have been some promising future signs for both men and women at the under-23 level. In the Hawaii Ironman, Australia maintained its fine tradition with a win in the women’s race and silver in the men’s race. There were some encouraging performances in para triathlon, including one world championship. The loss of some world-class coaches in 2013 remains a cause for concern and replacement strategies will need to be monitored throughout 2014.

Triathlon Australia (TA) currently meets a number of the mandatory sports governance principles. The aligned behaviours of the national body and state and territory associations ensures TA is well positioned to improve its governance rating in 2014 as it moves towards a whole-of-sport operating and governance structure.

TA continues to experience steady growth in full active membership and event participants, with 19 per cent increase across both categories. After a number of delays and extended piloting phase, the sport is scheduled to launch a junior participation product in early 2014.
