British Triathlon have delivered a six day coaching project in Trinidad as part of UK Sport’s International Partnerships Programme (IPP) initiative.
The IPP is a world-leading initiative that helps National Governing Bodies (NGBs) build closer relationships with national federations around the world through collaborative partnerships and projects.
The initiative helps to ensure the UK has a respected voice across the international sporting landscape whilst contributing meaningfully to the development of their sport globally.
British Triathlon delivered their IPP project in Trinidad last month to 18 coaches from five Caribbean nations.
The International Coach Development Programme was delivered to support and improve the quality and quantity of triathlon coaches in Caribbean nations.
The programme comes after British Triathlon proved the most successful nation at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games by claiming three medals in Brazil.
Alistair Brownlee replicated his London 2012 gold medal triumph with victory in men’s event with brother Jonny taking the silver medal at Fort Copacabana.
Meanwhile in the women’s event, Vicky Holland claimed a bronze medal as she finished narrowly behind Gwen Jorgensen of the United States and Nicola Spirig of Switzerland.
