Emma Pooley took the ITU Powerman Long Distance Duathlon World Championships in Zofingen, gave it a damn good shake and sliced 16 minutes off Karin Thürig's 2002 course record. Sweden's Eva Nyström was 32 minutes off the pace and Laura Hrebec (SUI) was another 90 seconds back.

Gaël Le Bellec (FRA), another Zofingen first-timer like Pooley, took four minutes out of his compatriot Yannick Cadalen and another 90 seconds ahead of third placed Søren Bystrup (DEN). GB duathlete Matt Moorhouse placed sixth and the full elite results are online HERE.
