As of today, women’s triathlon has been OFFICIALLY approved as a NCAA Division 1 Emerging Sport!!! Today, the vote received over 95% support from the NCAA Division 1 Legislative Council.
Thanks to all the YoungTri members who signed the petition to show their support!
“Today is a watershed moment for the sport,” said Rob Urbach, USA Triathlon CEO. “After four years of hard work behind the scenes, this announcement represents a huge victory for current and future student-athletes, for the NCAA member institutions that will operate varsity triathlon programs, and for USA Triathlon’s future Olympic success.”
