Waarom het geen toeval is dat Luc Van Lierde, Chris ?Macca? McCormack, Eneko Llanos, Frederik Van Lierde en vele anderen niet toevallig succesvol zijn overgestapt van de korte naar de lange afstand.

Physiological characteristics of elite short- and long-distance triathletes.

The purpose of this study was to compare the physiological responses in cycling and running of elite short-distance (ShD) and long-distance (LD) triathletes.

Fifteen elite male triathletes participating in the World Championships were divided into two groups (ShD and LD) and performed a laboratory trial that comprised submaximal treadmill running, maximal then submaximal ergometry cycling and then an additional submaximal run. "In situ" best ShD triathlon performances were also analysed for each athlete.

ShD demonstrated a significantly faster swim time than LD whereas .VO2max (ml/kg/ min), cycling economy, peak power output (Wpeak) and ventilatory threshold (%VO2max) were all similar between ShD and LD.
Moreover, there were no differences between the two groups in the change (%) in running economy from the first to the second running bout. Swimming time was correlated to Wpeak (r=-0.76; P<0.05) and economy ( r=-0.89; P<0.01) in the ShD athletes. Also, cycling time in the triathlon was correlated to Wpeak (r=-0.83; P<0.05) in LD.

In conclusion, ShD triathletes had a faster swimming time but did not exhibit different maximal or submaximal physiological characteristics measured in cycling and running than LD triathletes.
