British medallists in ITU World Triathlon Series

The World Triathlon Series started in 2009. World Champions are decided based on points won during the Series rather than for a one off win, as they were prior to 2009.

In 2009 Alistair Brownlee won the Series by winning five out of the five races he contested. He won it again in 2011, as did Helen Jenkins. Jonathan Brownlee won it in 2012 and Non Stanford won in 2013.

Below shows results in each round - for Series winners see Triathlon World Champions at the top of this page.
