Abstract :

Physiology has made a significant contribution to the understanding of what the human body goes through during physical training and athletic competition, with an end goal of learning how to maximize the potential of athletes. In the sport of triathlon, however, knowledge of the physiological demands during competition is far from being extensive, likely due to the complexity of studying a sport that consists of multiple modes of exercise and covers a multitude of distances. Answers to the most fundamental question of what factors determine the performance of a sport can only be obtained by studying real competition. Thus, the main purpose of this research is to identify and describe the physiological response, energy balance and muscle damage during an ultra-endurance triathlon competition.
