The final ITU World Cup race of the year in Cancun saw another first time British winner - following Jodie Stimpson's debut win in the last event in Guatape, Columbia.

This time it was Katie Hewison (née Ingram) who took the honours in what was only her third ever World Cup event. With that win adding to similar at the Canary Wharf Triathlon and the Strathclyde (Du)Triathlon domestically this year, plus an ITU World Duathlon Silver, Hewison will be looking to step up again in 2013 where I imagine we will start to see her racing in the premier ITU World Series events.

Katie Hewison achieved an impressive ITU World Cup win in Cancun, Mexico. The 27 year old, who is originally from Chorley and was recruited to triathlon through the trigold scheme, broke away at the start of the run to set up her first ever World Cup win.

Racing over the sprint distance, Hewison rode up to the leaders on the bike and made her move at the start of the run. Her final run time was over 30 seconds faster than the next best athlete and her winning margin over the USA’s Kaitlin Shiver was 35seconds.

Hewison said: “It’s absolutely amazing, I’m really pleased. It was a great race for me. I came out of the swim in contention, and it showed that I could use my strength at the end.”

Having won silver at the ITU Duathlon World Championships two weeks ago, Hewison is targeting more success next year and has joined Darren Smith’s international coaching group, along with London 2012 Olympian, Vicky Holland, and Jodie Stimpson.

She added: “This year was about building a base as I had to take time out about a year ago with a lot of injury problems. I’ve been using this year to build back slowly and this was a great way to come back, so it’s full steam ahead for next year now.”
