This article discusses the popularity of triathlon in the U.S. in 1999. Triathlon is a sport that combines swimming, running and bicycling. One reason why more adults and kids are getting interested is that in summer of 2000, triathlon will be a full medal sport at the Olympics in Sydney, New South Wales. Overall participation around the U.S. is up significantly this year and sponsors are increasing their involvement. In 1999, six IronKids triathlon competitions are planned, each expected to draw as many as 500 competitors, ages 7 to 14. The final championships, slated for September 12, 1999 in San Antonio, Texas, will be covered on ESPN.
