To be the "Fastest Triathlete", you must be resilient, resistant and have a strategy when competing in three rounds of swimming, cycling, and running. 

The tactic used by the athlete during the rest period between each round, is a determining factor in the race. The winner is the one who has the shortest time in total for three rounds, generating much anticipation of the final decision.
