The story of the Club, its identity and vision is also highlighted on our coat of arms.
The pictogram on the coat of arms is based on a classic design that represents the position of competitors in triathlon, where segments of swimming, cycling and running alternate at the locations of natural monuments of the Blue and Red and Green Lakes. 3 lakes for 3 disciplines are also 3 laps that symbolize the desire to be better and stronger – nurturing at the same time sports and Olympic spirit. All roads in Imotski lead to the Blue Lake – its blue color is enchanting; it is the color of simplicity and nobility. The golden six-pointed star and the laid golden crescent (which are also on the coat of arms of the town of Imotski) are ancient historical symbols of beauty and youth. Triathlon is a sport, and sport has always been more than movement; it is a way of growing up, maturing, and traveling the path of life.
As part of the Blue ° Red ° Green ° Lake project, we want to promote triathlon as an attractive, dynamic and desirable sport, but also the City of Imotski as a sports and tourist destination.

Marco Polo Challange
Croatian Championship in medium length triathlon
The 10th Marco Polo Challange was held in the magical and unique Korčula, in one of the most beautiful Mediterranean oases, in the culturally and historically rich treasury of our history, from 18 to 20 September 2020. The tenth anniversary was an opportunity to pay homage to this city’s first medium-length triathlon (also known as the half Ironman – 1.9 km swimming / 90 km cycling / 21.1 km running).
The track from Korčula to Vela Luka was quite demanding, and high temperatures created additional pressure on the competitors. As an introduction to the main race, the competition was held in shorter distances (sprint triathlon, relay sprint triathlon – and humanitarian road race at 5 km).
