CAF Elite Paratriathlon Team

Established in 2013, the CAF Elite Paratriathlon Team was formed to provide some of the top U.S. paratriathletes the support they need to compete at the highest level with the goal of racing at Paratriathlon's debut in the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Members enjoy funding and product donations from sponsors including J&L Pie Company, Nike, PowerBar, Procellera Elite, ISM Saddles, XTERRA Wetsuits and Rudy Project. These partners assist CAF in providing the team with apparel and shoes, nutrition, bike seats, wound recovery, equipment, training stipends and race expenses that give the team the best chance to reach their highest potential..

The CAF Elite Paratriathlon Team has selected seven CAF-supported physically challenged athletes for this team – including both male and female athletes from a variety of disability classes – based on past performance in National and International Paratriathlon races, growth potential within the sport and their ability to represent CAF’s mission and our sponsors.
