As far as I know, once a sport is recognized on the Olympic programme,
its international federation is eligible for annual financial aid.
However, I doubt if an entry sport such as triathlon will receive much
money as compared to IAAF (tract & field), FIFA (soccer) or FINA
(aquatics). In any case, if I remember correctly, triathlon is only
guaranteed on the Sydney programme, and will not necessarily be kept on
: Triathlon was just accepted by the IOC. Can someone from an Olympic sport
: tell me what real benefits Olympic status will give our sport?
