Welcome to the newsletter

Another week, and another top performance from a British triathlete. As if Hyde Park 2010 hadn't shown it already, Jonathan Brownlee showed he is ready to step out of the large shadow cast by older brother, and reigning ITU World Champion Alistair, by winning a senior world title of his own in Lausanne. The inaugural ITU Elite Sprint Distance Championship can now be added to the bulging Brownlee brothers trophy cabinet, and that was backed up by a silver from Tim Don, on what is perhaps his favourite course in the world.

This year the references comparing the annual Club Relays to Triathlon Glastonbury had an added addition in the form of torrential rain on Saturday afternoon, though that didn't stop another fantastic weekend of racing action (and another win for Ceepo TFN RT!).

Chrissie Wellington was also back to racing - and how - at Timberman Ironman 70.3. The scary thing for her opposition - she is swimming faster than ever...Kona will be very interesting.

In this issue:

International Action

ITU World Sprint Distance Championships

This inaugural event took place in the challenging surrounds of Lausanne, Switzerland and it was more success for Great Britain as Jonathan Brownlee and Tim Don made it a one-two. Full report HERE. Lisa Norden and Emma Moffatt have been the two most consistent female athletes over the past two seasons, so it was appropriate that they took gold and silver respectively. Full report HERE.

Chrissie Wellington dominated again at Timberman Ironman 70.3 (report HERE), while Pete Jacobs established himself as - perhaps - an outside contender for Kona with a clear win over Terrenzo Bozzone in the heat of the Cobra Ironman 70.3 Philippines (report HERE).

One of the unique event of British triathlon, the Club Relays has everything from the very best club teams in the sport battling for medals, right through to a few teams dressed as Smurfs! Here is a summery of the medal winners. Full results HERE.

There was also plenty of triathlon / rowing lake action on Saturday at Dorney Lake, with the Orca Multisport Festival which included triathlon, aquathlon and open water swim races. Jonathan Hotchkiss and Carol Bridge were convincing winners of the Standard distance event.


Sunday UK Racing

There was a very generous prize purse of £2000 on offer on Sunday at the Stockton Triathlon. After winning on Saturday at Dorney Lake, Jonathan Hotchkiss headed north, but was beaten into second place by Ben Newman. Anna Turvey just edged out Jenny Latham for the £500 first prize in the ladies race. Full results HERE.

Racing continued at Holme Pierrepont with the Nottingham Triathlon, and also the British Paratriathlon Championships - we have a full report on that HERE.

We also have a report from the Team Lifestyle Bexhill Triathlon HERE, where Ironman UK winner Yvette Grice and Barney Reed collected another generous prize purse.

Plenty of other great racing too - check out the results links below.
