It’s hard to believe that the triathlon has only been an Olympic sport since the millennial games in Greece. The sport seems bred for inclusion in the world’s biggest athletic show of muscle. Triathletes swim, run, and bike their way to the finish like, and train like Olympians to get there. Since being initiated as an official Olympic sport, triathlon participation has skyrocketed, but you don’t have to be an Olympic athlete to enjoy this challenging and rewarding sport. You don’t even have to do all three legs; participate in one of Miami’s many open triathlons, marathons or swimming events to test your mind, body and feel like a real champ.
