At the ITU World Triathlon Series in Hamburg, Non Stanford put in an impressive performance to dominate the run leg of the women’s race and return to the top step of the podium for the first time in three years. There were three other British athletes in action with all of them finishing within the top 15.
The Hamburg ITU Triathlon Mixed Relay World Championships saw Great Britain fight back to claim a top 10 finish after a difficult start. The team found themselves in 15th place going into T1 and from then onwards, Great Britain were on their own for much of the race as they battled back to make up the gap that had been established by the top group.
