IABT, formerly known as "Black Triathlete" a social group on Facebook spear-headed by Alexandria Williams, begin in 2012 and in 2014 was formed into International Association of Black Triathletes founded by Dr. Tekemia Dorsey, Keisha Ragoobir, Jeremy Gordon, and Alexandria Williams. The impact we want to have on the sport is far greater than that of simply a social media group. We want to have a positive, long term affect in helping to mold, shape, and change the sport for African Americans and other triathletes in the sport of triathlons, present and future.
Building overall sense of team camaraderie, independent of individual training groups, is very important at IABT Junior Triathletes. Within each practice, athletes will be divided up based on their athletic development in the specific activity rather than by their training group. The differences between the developmental and competitive groups is primarily time commitment. The developmental group is a great place for participants who are new to triathlon and want to give it a try.
