Most Common Triathlon Injuries
Few things are more physically exerting than a triathlon. The combination of running, cycling and swimming puts almost every part of the body under immense pressure, so it’s no surprise that injuries are commonplace. The most common type of injury faced by triathletes is overuse injuries. A 2011 study found that in the 6 months leading up to a triathlon, 87% of participants reported an overuse injury. Almost a quarter of injuries reported were acute, with the vast majority of these being sustained while cycling.
