Triathletes compete for the fastest overall completion time, racing each segment sequentially with the time transitioning between the disciplines included. Triathletes train to achieve endurance, strength, and speed, which require focused, persistent, and periodical training for each of the three disciplines, as well as combination workouts and general strength conditioning.
