Dear Triathlon Friends,

Bulgarian Triathlon Association has been granted Sport license for Triathlon with an order of the Minister of Youth and Sport, Mr. Krasen Kralev. All our Sport clubs member have also successfully certified by Ministry of Youth and Sport

Our main goal for future is to work in the area of popularization of this dynamic and attractive Olympic sport across the society, especially with focus to youth people. Bulgarian Triathlon Association is committed to support the development of triathlon on national level and to partnering with all ETU and World Triathlon. Our plans are to establish diversity of initiatives for sport development for youth and elite athletes, in particular emphasizing and assisting in all activities managed by sports clubs. These initiatives will form the basis on which athletes and their coaches will strive for sustainable competitive achievement at all levels. Establishing a National team and Coach committee is one of the most important initiative in order to provide possibility to Bulgarian athletes to participate on International events.

Our first initiative was to grant scholarship in the end of 2019 to the best performing athletes in several age-groups. Seven athletes have received financial support which has been provided by private companies which are interested in Triathlon development in Bulgaria

Yours sincerely:
Mario Iliev
Bulgarian Triathlon Association
