Women’s Triathlon Scholarships

Triathlon is probably one of the hardest sports in the world from an endurance standpoint. It consists of three parts, swimming, cycling and running. This extreme test of endurance and willpower has been an Olympic event since 2000 for both men and women. Its rise in popularity, especially among women on college campuses, has recently resulted in the NCAA officially declaring it an “emerging sport.” In order to now become an official NCAA sport, women’s triathlon needs 40 schools at the DI and DII level and 28 DIII schools to participate. If this does not happen over the next 10 years, the NCAA will drop the sport. However, so far things are looking very promising for the sport, with currently 15 total teams with varsity triathlon teams.
