Younger kids will enjoy colouring in this simple colouring page, which shows the three events which make up a normal triathlon - swimming, cycling and running.
Triathlon events were invented in the 1970s. As the name suggests, three sports are combined in to one event. Competitors must first swim 1,500m in open water, then cycle 40km on road, then finish with a 10km run. Changes of clothing between the three sports count towards the time, so a triathlon is a test of speed, endurance and sporting ability.
