Paratriathlon Guiding: How Tough Is It? | An Introduction To Visually Impaired Triathlon

Completing swim, bike & run back to back is hard enough. Now try and imagine doing them whilst attached to another athlete. We wanted to find out just what it is like to be a guided athlete along with the challenges of being a guide, so joined British Triathlon for their paratriathlon training day.

New matt Stephen – can’t clip in

Tandem Cycling:
1. one rider’s tailwind becomes the other’s headwind
2. riding the same bike, twice, at once
3. the hind rider does NOT go faster from the fore rider’s streamline

I done my race yesterday , i was expecting it to be more like for roadies , but knowing that i rode 3 hours in rain 2 normal riding and half a hour of walking.
Look what gtn made out of me ! :)))

Great video, thanks for bringing attention to these amazing athletes.

That’s sooo Awesome!!!

As a VI triathlete… Thank you SO MUCH for this!

This is excellent. More coverage schould be done for all types of athletes; World class – youngsters – Middle age to old and Handicapped
Well done

Absolute TOP content !! In the first place because of the focus on the athletic nuances and not the disability. Secondly I like the cross-over between the channels & presenters. Now it also clicked why Maya (& that Matrix-bike too) seemed so familiar, seeing her on an episode of Valenti San Juan’s channel… Bravo!!
