What constitutes a good score in a triathlon?

This is very hard to generalise but, in the more competitive classes, the following is a very rough guide:

2,000 points – good, steady performance; an important barrier to break through

2,250 points – good performance

2,500 points – very good performance, likely to be amongst the rosettes

2,750 points – excellent performance, challenging for a top 3 individual placing

3,000 points – outstanding result, likely to win, or be very close to winning the competition

In biathlons, anything approaching 1,500 points represents a really strong performance. Anything over than 1,500 is likely to result in a place.

Finally, how does this translate into tetrathlon scores?

With 1,400 points available for the riding phases, anything over 4,000 points represents an excellent performance, with the very best tetrathletes being capable of scoring close to 4,500 points.
