Triathlon at the Olympic Games is draft legal, so they'd be mostly on road bikes.

In most other triathlon events (Ironman, Challenge, etc) drafting is illegal, so they use TT / tri style bikes.

Yes. Pretty tough to source any 11-speed eTap derailleurs, blip boxes, etc. The batteries are the same for eTap and 12-speed AXS though, so that's something I guess.
