USA Triathlon's nearly 500,000 members are athletes of all ages, coaches, race directors, officials, parents, and multisport enthusiasts, all of whom contribute to the success of the sport in the United States. USA Triathlon is responsible for the identification, selection, and training of elite triathletes who represent the United States in international competition, including International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Championships, Pan American Games, and the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
