Athlete Categorisation

Aligned to the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) Athlete Categorisation Framework, the purpose of the AusTriathlon (AT) Athlete Categorisation Guidelines 2021-2024 is to provide an outline of the process by which athlete categorisation will be assessed and conducted.  

The purpose of athlete categorisation is to identify athletes who have the potential to achieve Olympic and Paralympic Podium Success within two Olympic and Paralympic Cycles and support the achievement of the aims of the AusTriathlon high performance program. Categorisation levels reflect the timeframe around which an athlete is likely to achieve podium success based on patterns of progression of podium athletes within the sport.  

Athlete categorisation is the primary mechanism for access to AT high performance environments (and agreed external daily training environment (DTE) support for Paralympic Pathway athletes) and other daily training environment support (including high performance coaching).
