Urand takes gold and Richter silver in Montreal


Off the back of World Triathlon Para Series Swansea last weekend, Britain's paratriathletes were once again on the start line, this time in the Canadian city of Montreal.

In what was the final race within the qualification window for the Paris Paralympic Games, Great Britain were represented by Henry Urand (Men's PTS3), Megan Richter (Women's PTS4), Josh Landmann (Men's PTWC), Alison Peasgood and her guide Brooke Gillies (Women's PTVI) and Finley Jakes (Men's PTS4) at World Triathlon Para Series Montreal.

The racing took place at Parc Jean-Drapeau, with athletes completing a single lap 750m swim in the Olympic Basin at the venue.

Following transition one, the Montreal bike course then took place on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, with athletes completing five laps to total 20.4 km including the entry and exit to transition.

Concluding the race was the 5km run, with the course taking athletes on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and the path alongside the Olympic Basin where they'd swum.

The results at the finish line overlooked by the grandstand were:

Gold - Henry Urand (PTS3 Men)

Silver  - Megan Richter (PTS4 Women)

4th - Josh Landmann (PTWC Men)

5th - Alison Peasgood guided by Brooke Gillies (PTVI Women)

7th - Finley Jakes (PTS4 Men)
