While events in Hamburg dominated the international racing attention this weekend, there were plenty of other interesting races too. We had British athletes making impressive debuts over the Olympic Distance, an Ironman World Champion winning again and two British long distance women continuing their road to full recovery after so long out of racing action with injury.

Geneva ITU European Cup

In an ITU weekend dominated by events in Hamburg, some encouraging results in Geneva for the 'next generation'. The still Juniors of Gordon Benson and Marc Austin raced in their first Olympic Distance events and both made the podium too - a fine effort from two athletes who regular readers will note are increasingly producing great performances in big races. Their development into Senior athletes has several years to go yet - but currently they appear to be heading in exactly the right direction. We'll continue to keep an eye on them.

Pos Men Women
1st Aurelien Lebrun (FRA) 1:57:37 Felicity Sheedy-Ryan (AUS) 2:13:51
2nd Gordon Benson (GBR) 1:58:38 Anne Tabarant (FRA) 2:15:19

Ironman 70.3 Racine

Great to see Cat Morrison's return to form, fitness and racing continue with third place in a very close race at Ironman 70.3 Racine. Mixing it at the front with such class athletes as Angela Naeth (CAN) and Mirinda Carfrae (AUS) can only bode well for the second half of her season. Having spent so long on the sidelines with injury, she deserves it.

Pos Men Women
1st Martin Jensen (DEN) 3:47:05 Angela Naeth (CAN) 4:15:00
2nd Andrew Starykowicz (USA) 3:48:34 Mirinda Carfrae (AUS) 4:15:51
3rd Ivan Vasiliev (RUS) 3:51:22 Catriona Morrison (GBR) 4:16:04
4th Tim Reed (AUS) 3:53:21 Barbara Riveros (CHI) 4:18:41
5th Paul Ambrose (AUS) 3:53:28 Haly Chura (USA) 4:22:24

Ironman 70.3 Lake Stevens

Three-time Ironman World Champion Craig Alexander (AUS) edged away from Luke Bell on the run to take a narrow win, while Meredith Kessler did the same to Melanie McQuaid (CAN) - though in her case, to a more than five minute victory margin.

Pos Men Women
1st Craig Alexander (AUS) 3:55:23 Meredith Kessler (USA) 4:18:05
2nd Luke Bell (AUS) 3:55:59 Melanie McQuaid (CAN) 4:23:22
3rd Elliot Holtham (CAN) 3:59:40 Kate Bevilaqua (AUS) 4:33:42
4th Paul Matthews (AUS) 4:04:44 Jeannie Seymour (RSA) 4:36:41
5th Matt Lieto (USA) 4:07:13 Tenille Hoogland (CAN) 4:42:30

XTERRA Mountain Championships

"Super fun to race today. It hurt but in a good way. Knee and foot felt ok!" - so said Julie Dibens who, like Cat Morrison mentioned above, has missed so much time out of racing due to long term, serious injury. Julie finished seventh in Beaver Creek, Colorado.


Pos Men Women
1st Josiah Middaugh 2:08:00 Shonny Vandlandingham 2:29:51
2nd Brabden Rakita 2:13:56 Danelle Kabush 2:31:39
