Blue Card?

Recommended Posts

i know it's been a while since I did a half but when did the blue cards enter our sport?

Technical Officials may issue

o Yellow Card - Stop/Start Penalties in transition and on the run leg

o Blue Card - Time Penalties of 5 minutes to be served in the Penalty Box on the cycle leg. Two or more blue card time penalties may result in the competitor being disqualified by the Race Referee.

o Red Card – Major Infringement. The competitor may continue to complete the event but must afterwards meet with the Race Referee who will rule on the violation.

Yellow used to always be a time so penalty.  Why not have just kept it that way and introduced the blue card as the stop/start penalty?

I’m glad I’m not alone on this. It’s just dumb. 

Goughy is right.

What I don't get it why it wasn't green. Like every other sport. 

Green - stop start penalty. 

Yellow - same

Red - same. 

Nope, we have to do blue 'cause triathlacon

Dont do anything wrong and you have nothing to worry about. Right?

I'm claiming colourblindness. Or complete innocence.

Blue card was used in South Africa for blocking. Quite a few dished out.
