To Triathlon Gear https://www.triathlon.org/news/article/richard_murray_digs_deep_to_earn_magnificent_gold_in_leeds A gutsy run from Richard Murray secured the South African his first-ever Olympic distance WTS gold in AJ Bell World Triathlon Leeds on a steamy Sunday afternoon in the north of England. Murray put down the hammer on the first lap of the 10km run to carve out what proved to be an unassailable lead despite the best efforts of race no.1 Mario Mola. The Spaniard finished second after pulling away on the final lap from Vincent Luis of France who took the bronze.

“During the swim today I actually thought I should retire from triathlon,” said a smiling Murray after the race. “I was way behind the pack in the swim, it was really tough. But during the bike I started feeling better and by the run I felt pretty good”.

“I always look back too soon so this time I just wanted to focus 100% on my race, and I’m delighted with my first win over the Olympic distance.”

To nobody’s surprise, it was once again Richard Varga (SLO) who emerged first from the two-lap, 1500m swim on Waterloo Lake. More surprising was that Jonnathan Brownlee (GBR), Henri Schoeman (RSA) and Aaron Royle (AUS), all struggled to come to terms with the second lap and found themselves almost 15 seconds behind.

After one of his better swims, Mario Mola (ESP) was also well-positioned, but some trouble with his shoe in transition saw the Spaniard fall back further, while France’s Pierre le Corre strode out of T1 and mounted his bike in front as the athletes snaked out of Roundhay Park for the point-to-point section of the cycle.

With a train of 13 men working hard over those first kilometres of the bike course, the faster sections really allowed the athletes to gather up some momentum and hometown hero Jonny Brownlee was among those looking comfortable sharing the load alongside Henri Schoeman and Leo Bergere.

Things slowed down somewhat as the city section came into view and the first of the seven passes through transition in front of the grandstands on Millennium Square as the leaders sought to avoid any congestion trouble on the testing technical section.

Aware of that, the chasing bunch only needed a couple of laps to swallow the leading pack. Henri Schoeman and Leo Bergere made their move and pushed for some breathing space, carving a 16 second lead only to then be swallowed back up by the likes of Richard Murray (RSA), Ben Kanute (USA) and Dorian Coninx (FRA). At the same time, the crowd was left speechless as their idol Jonny Brownlee dropped back and then eventually…

To Triathlon Gear https://www.triathlon.org/news/article/usa_take_the_gold_as_itu_mixed_relay_world_series_gets_off_to_a_flier_in_no Thursday’s first stop of this year’s three-leg inaugural ITU Mixed Relay World Series set the tone for Hamburg and Edmonton to follow, with the 18 teams of four delivering plenty of high-speed thrills on a rapid Nottingham course. It was a glorious afternoon that greeted the athletes, and the huge crowds were given a multi-sport feast as the USA team flew to victory, finishing ahead of Great Britain in second place with France coming home third.

With two men and two women per team, the flat 300m swim, 7km bike, and 1.5km was always going to be a high-velocity affair, and each intense tag was followed by a spectacular running dive as the action returned to the River Trent. Indeed, it proved to be a brilliant swim and bike section from Katie Zaferes that was decisive, as first she ate into the early French lead and then stretched away, leaving Matthew McElroy to steer Team USA to victory.

“It was clear what I needed to do and what the goal was, but I didn’t expect to catch her on the swim,” said Zaferes, with teammate McElroy adding; “I think it just comes down to all the hard work I’ve been putting in in training. On the bike, I just put my head down and tried to get as aero as I could and just smashed it.”

It was the Americans who set the early pace as Kirsten Kasper was first out of the water closely followed by Spain’s Anna Godoy Contreras and Cassandre Beaugrand of France. Britain’s Non Stanford and Italy’s Angelica Olmo had also enjoyed excellent swims, but it was Beaugrand who pulled away and was able to then power past Kasper to give France the advantage through the first handover.

Pierre Le Corre flew into the water for France along with a spectacular dive from Germany’s Jonas Schomburg. USA’s Eli Hemming and Great Britain’s Thomas Bishop were in pursuit, but there was little catching Le Corre until a rapid transition from Tyler Reid saw New Zealand also suddenly into contention.

France maintained their lead as Le Corre tagged Mathilde Gautier and she took to the water, but it wasn’t long before Zaferes had the USA team back out front, eventually taking a solid lead through T1 after a perfect swim. It was a similar tale on the bike as Britain’s Vicky Holland, Australia’s Ashleigh Gentle and Anne Holm of Denmark failed to make any significant headway from within a chasing pack of five.

The final handover saw Zaferes to McElroy and Holland to Brownlee as the race entered its final stage, and the crowd sensed some…
