Aaron Royle and Holly Lawrence lead after Day One of Island House Invitational

Day One of the 2016 Island House Invitational Triathlon ( today (Friday) saw the athletes racing in an unfamiliar format, with individual time-trial events over Swim, Bike and Run disciplines - each over Sprint triathlon distances.

It's been a good day for Great Britain's Ironman 70.3 World Champion, Holly Lawrence, who finished in the top five positions in all three events to take a lead of just over half a minute into day two, ahead of ITU and XTERRA World Champion Flora Duffy (2nd) and Olympic Champion Gwen Jorgensen (3rd).

The top of the men's cumulative standings is very tightly contested, with Aaron Royle (AUS) holding a very narrow lead over Terenzo Bozzone (NZL) and Richard Murray (RSA). The top ten men are currently separated by just 46 seconds.

Here are the top five positions in each of the three events, followed by the top five overall positions on cumulative time.
