CAF Elite Paratriathlon Team




CAF is proud to announce the formation of the CAF Elite Paratriathlon Team. The team, which will focus on the development of top performing U.S. paratriathletes in anticipation of the inaugural inclusion of paratriathlon in the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games, was made possible through a generous donation from a private foundation. The team sponsors including: J&L Pie Company, Nike, PowerBar, ZICO Pure Premium Coconut Water, Dodge, Game Ready®, XTERRA Wetsuits, Procellera, and Rudy Project will allow CAF to provide top apparel and shoes, helmets and sunglasses, wetsuits, nutrition, coaching and training stipends, equipment and race expenses for team members this year.

The CAF Elite Paratriathlon Team has selected seven CAF-supported physically challenged athletes for its inaugural season – 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.
