Great Britain's Aaron Harris came oh so close to the win today at the Tiszaujvaros ITU Triathlon World Cup in Hungary, while Gwen Jorgensen (USA) took the confidence from her Olympic qualifying second place in Hyde Park last weekend to take her first big ITU win. Given the party reputation of Tiszaujvaros, a great choice of venue to celebrate two weekend's of great results.

Harris went into the final run lap with a 10 second margin over McMahon but was unable to hold off the fast running Canadian.
