History of FITri
The Triathlon started in Italy in 1984 with the running of the first race, which took place in Ostia (Rome) with the so-called olympic distance (1.5km - 40km - 10km).
In 1985, the Associazione Italiana Triathlon (AIT or Italian Triathlon Association) is founded. In 1988 the Triathlon is officially recognised by the CONI and becomes a discipline associated with the Italian Federation of Modern Pentathlon.
In 1989, the first elective ordinary meeting gives a new name to the AIT with the Italian Triathlon Federation.
On 19 December 1998, the Federazione Italiana Triathlon (FITri or Italian Triathlon Federation) becomes a discipline directly associated to the CONI and, in December 2000 the recognition of the FITRI occurs at the National Sports Federation.
On 25 October 2001 the Prefecture of Rome, with registration number 51/2001, recognises the legal personality for all intents and purposes of the Italian Triathlon Federation and on 13 November 2001 the Federation, for the first time, represented by its president Marco Sbernadori, participates officially at the meeting of the National Council of the CONI.
