Published on April 9th 2018


As triathletes, we think we’re cool because we do three sports, but for those on the outside, we don’t half do some odd things! So, what are the signs that we compete in triathlons? Subscribe to GTN: Check out the GTN Shop: At GTN, we understand that from the outside world, triathletes can seem a little odd! With 3 sports, there is a lot to think about when it comes to training, kit and our general behaviour. Here are 12 things that we think make us stand out from the crowd: - You panic when you have to travel out of town because you don’t know where you’ll swim - You are completely obsessed with being more aerodynamic - Your appetite is larger than anyone else you know - Urinating on yourself has become completely appropriate - You’re jealous of your friends who are “just” training for a marathon - You consider work, recovery time between training sessions - Your legs are smoother than your partners - You spend your 2-week annual holiday at a training camp - You know you’re a triathlete when your car purchase depends on whether your bike will fit in the back - Your cologne of choice is chlorine - You’re handbag has become a rucksack full of emergency training kit If you enjoyed this video, don't forget to give it a thumbs up and share it with your friends 👍 If you'd like to contribute captions and video info in your language, here's the link - Watch more on GTN... 📹 Beginner Triathlon Mistakes - 📹 The 7 Unwritten Rules Of Triathlon - Music: Epidemic Sound Photos: © Triathlon / Getty Images
