Outlook for Rio: Darmon will become the first Israeli to compete in the Olympic triathlon after reaching No. 52 in the rankings. The triathlon was first contested at the Olympics in 2000, with athletes swimming 1.5 kilometers before cycling 40km. and finishing with a 10km run. Simply reaching Rio is a great success for Darmon, who will be delighted if he can finish anywhere in the top half.
