Triathlon

Triathlon is an athletic event consisting of swimming, cycling and running over various distances.

In most modern triathlons, these events are placed back-to-back in immediate sequence and a competitor's official time includes the time required between the individual legs of the race, including any time necessary for changing clothes and shoes.

Triathlon was incorporated into the Asian Games in 2006.
