As well as Alistair Brownlee maintaining his perfect World Championship Series season this morning, Saturday was also the World Age Group Championship over the standard distance, which as always, included a large Team GB presence.

A quick review of the results and provisionally, here are those who have made it onto the podium steps:

Gold Nick Dunn M25-29
  Tamsin Lewis F30-34
  Claire Cunningham FPara TRI4
Silver Sophie Whitworth F35-39
  Peter Howard M75-79
Bronze Colin Dixon M40-44
  Mark Hirsch M45-49
  Sarah Barrett F60-64

A few people there who have added to an already impressive medal haul - Sophie Whitworth for example has won, we think, her fourth World Championship silver in the past five seasons... and this time she was just eight seconds away for gold.

Colin Dixon adds bronze to the gold he won in Hamburg 2007 - and we are very happy about that, as Colin is one of the nicest guys on the circuit, and has been performing at the highest levels now for the best part of 20 years.

It was also another great day for 'coach' Michelle Dillon - after Jodie Stimpson winning silver yesterday in the elite under-23 event, Tamsin Lewis, who is also part of Team Dillon won gold in F30-34, and was also the third fastest age grouper overall.

As for Peter Howard... we've lost count of just how many medals he has collected over the years!
