Congratulations to our Jodie Swallow, who won the long-distance triathlon World Championships in Australia on Sunday.
website tri247.com reports:
Britain's Jodie Swallow continued the fantastic run of GB female success at the ITU World Long Distance Triathlon Championships in Perth, Australia today with a totally dominant 11 minute victory.
Exiting the water first, she then recorded the fastest 80km
cycle and 20km run to take her first senior world title. Home favourite
Rebekah Keat was a distant second, ahead of Delphine Pelletier (FRA)
for the bronze.
Swallow had shown promise over the longer distances - winning her
first Ironman 70.3 event in Singapore earlier in the season - and we
assume she will now be looking to add the Ironman 70.3 World
Championship crown in Clearwater, Florida in two weeks time. On this
sort of form, she must be a real contender for that, in what we would
forecast may well be an even more competitve race.
