Women in Sport - our 20x20 club commitment

At the beginning of this year, Athlone Triathlon Club proudly registered for the 20x20 charter to #ShowOurStripes for #WomenInSport and pledging to do our bit to support a campaign aiming to increase women’s participation in sport by 20% in 2020.

The decision to get involved with this charter was a very easy one for us; simply because we champion and support our female members within our Club at every given opportunity; at our training sessions, at our own club events, during National Tri events and for every single PB or sporting achievement these athletes choose to share with us! 

Not only have we 1 of only 8 Triathlon Ireland #BeyondTheFinishLine advocates for women in sport in our coach and club-mate Olivia McCartin, we also proudly have almost 40% of our overall club membership being represented by female athletes, a female Children’s Officer and 3 female Club Committee members. 

As we finish out 2020 and look ahead to 2021, we are proud to commit to doing things the way we always have and support, inspire, motivate and champion all our female athletes, from Juniors to Seniors, beyond EVERY finish line!!

“I want to get the word out there to other women that Triathlon is a sport for everyone! Don’t let any one element put you off; it’s the most rewarding thing you will ever do. Just go for it!”

(Olivia McCartin, Beyond the Finish Line Advocate)
