Yee, Fullagar and Griffiths claim gold


Alex Yee, Jess Fullagar and Betsy Griffiths all stood on the top-step of the podium over the weekend with strong performances in France and Tunisia respectively.  

Lindahls Pro+ Triathlon Series, Fréjus 
Yee kick-started his 2024 season with a gold medal at the opening round of the Lindahls Pro + Triathlon Series (formally the French Grand Prix Series). The 2024 Paris Olympian raced clear on the 5km run to finish ahead of New Zealand’s Hayden Wilde, who suffered a puncture on the closing stages of the bike leg. German Tim Hellwig was third.  

Fullagar was first across the line in the women’s race, out-sprinting home favourite Candice Denizot. The Brit exited the water in 22nd but raced her way through the field on the bike leg, heading towards T2 with just Denizot and Hungarian Zsanett Bragmayer for company.  

The trio then battled it out for the top spot on the podium, with Fullagar out sprinting Denizot for the win with Bragmayer finishing third, four second back.  

2024 Africa Triathlon Junior Cup Yasmine Hammamet 
Griffiths lead from the off as she claimed gold at 2024 Africa Triathlon Junior Cup Yasmine Hammamet. She was first out of the water and on the 20km bike leg her advantage stretched as she posted the fastest time of the race by over a minute.  

After registering the quickest run time over 5km, she crossed the line almost four minutes clear of Tunisia’s Israa Yahiaoui with Slovakia’s Hana Machackova completing the podium.  

2024 IRONMAN 70.3 St. George  
Kate Curran crossed the line in fifth as the sole Brit in the women’s race in Utah. She exited the water in the lead and put in top-ten times across the bike and run legs to finish fifth, over five minutes clear of America Danielle Lewis in sixth.  

In the men’s race Matthew Collins was the lead Brit finishing 13th. He was 24th heading into T1 but began climbing the standings on the bike. He then put in the 11th fastest run time of the race to finish strongly, cementing his place in the top-20. Blair Fullarton-Loggie was the other Brit in the race but recorded a DNF as he dropped out following the bike.  

2024 Europe Triathlon Powerman Middle Distance Duathlon Championships Alsdorf 
Matthew Nelson narrowly missed out on a podium as he finished fourth in Germany. He was third after the first 10km but lost time to the leaders on the bike leg. His place in the top-five was cemented in the second 10km leg as he again put in the third fastest time.  

In the women’s race Rachel Brown was just outside of the top-five as she came sixth. She was at the front end of the race across the first 10km run but on the 60km big leg dropped out of the top-five. Brown’s second 10km run was again the fourth fastest as she closed the gap to the top-five but missed out by 26 seconds to Germany’s Leonie Kleine-Bley.
