This file is an overview of the major highlights of Paul Binnie’s involvement in triathlon. Beginning in 1988, Paul supported his son’s participation in the sport. He then moved into an official position as the Ipswich Club Delegate to Triathlon Queensland. From there he moved through official positions in Triathlon Queensland, and onto Triathlon Australia.

Paul’s achievements as president of Triathlon Queensland include gaining an increase in funding for Triathlon Queensland, conducting the first state based drug test and improved standards of quality and safety.

Dr Hunt used these documents in her research for the book Multisport dreaming: The foundations of triathlon in Australia published in 2014.
