World Triathlon History

Versions of swim bike run multi-sports existed in the 1920s but it wasn't until the term triathlon was coined in 1974 in San Diego, that triathlon exploded in popularity. This rapid development drew the attention of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which initiated a discussion in 1988 to include it in the Olympic Games program.

In September 2017, World Triathlon announced the death of its founding and honorary President, Les McDonald, at the age of 84. The special press release, retraced his sporting and professional career, focusing on his success in obtaining Olympic status for triathlon in 2000, as well as his leadership of the federation for 20 years.

He was awarded the Order of Canada in 2013 for service to the nation and inducted into the its "Hall of Fame" in 2014 for all of his work for triathlon. In October 2020, the ITU officially adopted the name World Triathlon.
