The aim of the present study was to evaluate the race pace adopted by male and female triathletes during top level Olympic Triathlons events. The best performaces registered during 1998, 1999 and 2000 seasons were used. For the 8 first analyzed positions, important differences in the percentage difference respect to the best time were shown, in the swimming and running sections, being null in cycling. Considering that the biggest differences were observed during running event, we could think in this section as the most relevant for the final competition result. Finally, the women’s performance presented biggest differences between the 8 first places comparing to the men, suggesting that performance will be optimazed in this category during the next years.
