Triathlon Australia Collection

Date range

1996 to 1998


This file contains letters and reports from the late 1990’s, relating to the technical aspects of the sport, such as course measurement, technical officials, selection process, sanctioning and bicycle regulations.

Of particular interest is a 5-page document titled ‘Proposal for the introduction of a triathlon course measurement scheme’, created by Dave Cundy of Cundy Sports Marketing.

A newspaper article from the Perth Sunday Times, titled ‘He wants to try as a she’, reports on the first person born as a man, who wants to compete in a women’s triathlon event in the state of Western Australia.

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