2015 ETU European Elite Championships Results

When you have the four-time (and current), European Champion, who is also the reigning Olympic Champion and European Games Champion - racing at home in Switzerland - there was only ever going to be one winner of the Women's Elite race today at the 2015 European Elite Triathlon Championships in Geneva. Chapeau Nicola Spirig on yet another major championship medal - a truly class act and a fifth European Championship win in convincing fashion.

Spain's Javier Gomez started as an equally strong favourite for the men's title, but technical issues on the bike would put him out of contention and eventually out of the race. France's David Hauss would take the title in the absence of the legendary Gomez, a 31:19 run well clear of all of his chasers for an 18 second margin of victory. The veteran Swiss Sven Riederer continued his consistency to keep the home crowd happy with Silver, while Norway's Kristian Blummenfeldt edged out super swimmer Richard Varga (SVK) for Bronze. A strong race from Tom Bishop saw him take fifth, just two seconds down on Varga.
