Date range

1990 to 1991 and 2002


This file contains documents relating to the 1991 ITU World Championships Triathlon, hosted on the Gold Coast and a letter regarding advertising the 2002 Queensland Corporate Games.

It also contains the race calendar for all sanctioned 1990-91 Triathlon Association of Queensland (TAQ) events.

Interestingly, there is a letter from the Australian Sports Medicine Federation Limited (ASMF), urging TAQ to improve the standards of organisation and medical coverage at events by allowing ASMF to assist, following some safety issues at the 1990 Noosa triathlon.

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