A Systematic Review of Long‐Distance Triathlon Musculoskeletal Injuries
TLDR
Overuse injuries, particularly in the knee, are the most frequently reported, running and cycling are themost frequent disciplines associated, and long-distance triathletes may have a lower incidence of both overuse and acute injuries.
A Profile of Injuries in Athletes Seeking Treatment during a Triathlon Race Series
TLDR
The level and age of triathlon competitors, and the race distance, influenced the risk of injury over a race series, and could be incorporated into a review of practices for the provision of medical services to triathlon events, especially the common sprint distance competitions.
Epidemiology of Musculoskeletal Injuries in Adult Athletes: A Scoping Review
TLDR
In the majority of the sports examined, muscle/tendon strain and ligament sprain were the most common MSK-Is diagnoses, while athletics, karate, and football were the sports with the highest IIRs, depending on the methods used for their calculations.
High prevalence of overuse injury among iron-distance triathletes
TLDR
Overuse problems constitute the majority of injury cases among iron-distance triathletes, and are far more common than acute injuries and illnesses.

Epidemiological Aspects of Illness and Injury
TLDR
This chapter presents the results of five consecutive triathlon-specific studies, all of which used consistent data collection methods and definitions, with a total subject number of 2216, which provide an updated snapshot of current knowledge as regards to the extent of, and potential risk factors for, triathlete injury and illness.
SPORTS-RELATED INJURIES AMONG ATHLETES COMPETING AT THE MALAYSIA ULTRA-DISTANCE TRIATHLON EVENT:
TLDR
There was a wide range of injuries encountered by the competitors, and Muscle cramps, sprains, and nausea and/or vomiting were the most common type of injury across all race disciplines.
The Impact of Triathlon Training and Racing on Athletes’ General Health
TLDR
The data thus far collected indicate that the sport of triathlon is relatively safe for the well-prepared, well-supplied athlete, and training diaries may prove to be a promising method of monitoring negative adaptation and its potential risk factors.
An injury profile of amateur and semi-professional KwaZulu-Natal triathletes
TLDR
The results concur with previous research, but add insights into factors predisposing triathletes to injury.

Training patterns and sports injuries in triathletes.
Factors associated with triathlon-related overuse injuries.
TLDR
The results indicate that in assessing triathletes, a full training and competition history is required by the sports clinician for a comprehensive assessment of the factors that may contribute to overuse injury.
The incidence of musculoskeletal injuries in an amateur triathlete racing club.
TLDR
Examination of musculoskeletal injury incidence in amateur triathletes to determine if these injuries caused lost time from training, racing, working, or daily functioning found a majority experienced training interruption and interference with daily functioning and sought professional help for their injuries.
Analysis of injuries in long-distance triathletes.
TLDR
Investigation of injuries in triathlon found that the incidence of injuries during competition was higher than during training session, and injuries seem to be related to age, performance level and weekly training hours, but not to sex, presence of training coach and medical care.
Overuse injuries in ultraendurance triathietes
TLDR
The area of the body most frequently involved was the back, but the most common pattern was to have multiple areas involved, and mechanical abnormalities, such as diminished shock absorption, may have contributed to injury.
The prevalence of chronic knee injury in triathletes.
TLDR
Most knee injuries occurred during the running event (72%) and affected the lateral side of the knee (38%).
Overuse injuries in triathletes
TLDR
The likelihood of injury was independent of age, sex, body mass index, mileage per week, or other training factors evaluated in the study.
Understanding injury mechanisms: a key component of preventing injuries in sport
TLDR
The need to use a comprehensive model, which accounts for the events leading to the injury situation (playing situation, player and opponent behaviour), as well as to include a description of whole body and joint biomechanics at the time of injury is emphasised.
Incidence, Severity, Aetiology and Prevention of Sports Injuries
TLDR
The extent of the sports injury problem is often described by injury incidence and by indicators of the severity of sports injuries, and the importance of the determinants of sports behaviour, as well as the interaction between the various aetiological factors, is discussed.
Injury and training characteristics of male Elite, Development Squad, and Club triathletes.
TLDR
The number of overuse injuries sustained during cycling correlated with time spent running and cycling, and the number of running injuries sustained correlated with triathlon training distance, cycling distance, swimming distance, number of triathlon workouts and number ofRunning sessions within one weeks race training.
