Athens 2004 Olympic Games Pin
The 2004 Summer Olympic Games, officially known as the Games of the XXVIII Olympiad and commonly known as Athens 2004, was a premier international multi-sport event held in Athens, Greece, from 13 to 29 August 2004. Officially there were 301 events in 28 sports.
At the 2004 Summer Olympics, the triathlon events were held at the Vouliagmeni Olympic Centre. Fifty triathletes contested the female event on August 25, and the same number contested the male event on August 26, making up a total of 100 competitors.
Each competitor starts the event with a 1500 metre swim course, followed by a 40 kilometre road bicycle race and finish with a 10 kilometreroad run. Both leg transitions (swimming—cycling and cycling—running) are performed on a special transition area, under judge’s scrutiny and the duration of the transition is added to the final time.
