Bernardo Zetina was the first champion alongside with Carmen Ochoa, with them Ricardo Gonzalez, the Probert brothers, Maria Luis Martinez and Claudia Beristain dominated the Olympic Triathlon event in its early years.

They passed the title to athletes such as Fabiola Corona, Mexico first Olympian in Sydney 2000, Dunia Gomez, Uzziel Valderrábano, Elígio Cervantes and Arturo Garza, a five-time winner in different distances.
