This file contains a detailed overview of the inception and development of the sport of triathlon internationally, in Australia and in Queensland. The first 6 pages of the document are an extract from an unknown source, with the following headings: hello triathlon, the beginning, establishment in Australia, international development, development in Australia, development in Queensland and future.

There is a handwritten timeline, detailing the major milestones, and a development comparison between Queensland, Australia and the world.

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