A sprint triathlon is 800 meter swim, 12.4 mile bike, and 3.1 mile run...an olympic distance is double that.
Olympic triathalon- 1500m swim, 40km bike, 10km run
An Olympic triathlon is (obviously) the size they do in the Olympics and is the second-shortest official-sized triathlon (it goes Sprint>Olympic>Half-Ironman>Full Ironman) They are typically a 1.5km swim followed by a 40km bike leg, and finishing off with a 10 km run.
1500 meters roughly .9 miles
swim= 1.5km ride= 40km run=10km
a very long triathlon that takes up to 20 hours. the run is a full marathon!!!
