Why is there no Triathlon at the 2020 Summer Games?

Due to Budget constraints, NM Senior Olympics Ernesto Ramos State Summer Games will not offer Triathlon. Also, we understand this sport is considered a “limited” event for NSGA (National Senior Games Association). NSGA defines a “limited” event as one in which an athlete can qualify in ways other than thru State qualifying games. For Triathlon, an athlete can submit verification of having completed one (1) triathlon between January 1 and December 31, 2020. All triathlon athletes have the opportunity to participate under the “limited” event criteria regardless if a state offers this event. Athletes must submit to the NSGA office by no later than March 15, 2021 a limited event verification form, available on the NSGA website along with a copy of the official results or other public document illustrating the results.
