History

Norrie Williamson together with Mike Hogg, Dave McCarney and Philip Kuhn competed in the UK for the ultra triathlon relay event (Enduroman), with Bruce Fordyce and Tim Noakes as their support team, winning the event, on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. The win received wide coverage in the local newspapers prompting the group to form the South African Triathlon Federation on their arrival.

The South African Triathlon Federation (what is now known as Triathlon South Africa) was founded with the support of Norrie Williamson in 1984,[3] the name was changed to Triathlon South Africa in 1991.
