BACK TO BUSINESS
Numerous events were held this past weekend, reminding us of what we’ve been missing and giving us hope that we’re slowly returning to racing.
On Saturday the ITU World Championships were held in Hamburg, Germany, contested in a sprint distance format. It was the first and only WTS triathlon of 2020. Georgia Taylor-Brown (GBR) dominated the women’s field and Vincent Luis (FRA) grabbed his second consecutive title.
In the UK’s damp Lake District, the Helvellyn Triathlon took place over one of the world’s most challenging courses. 13 years after his first victory there, Alistair Brownlee led the men and Nikki Bartlett was first among the women.
IRONMAN also got into the act, producing its first races since March 15 including a full-distance and 70.3 in Tallinn, Estonia, a 70.3 in Les Sables-d’Olonne, France and a 70.3 in Gdynia, Poland.
There were some unexpected results but, hey… it’s great to be back in action!
