World Long Distance (Age Group)

Subject to confirmation, but we think that there are sixmedals so far to add to the Gold and Bronze in the Elite race. Silver for Michael Martin (20-24), Silver for Geoff Ayres (45-49), Gold for Freya Bloor (20-24), Silver for Jeannie Fry (40-44), Bronze for Lynda Massey (45-49) and Gold for Hilary Webber (55-59). Looks like there were a few DQs as well, we had David Jones down for a medal but it looks like he got a red card instead. The results are very odd and the columns in the mens and womens tables don't add up so we've just published the finish time until it's cleared up.


Pretty much as predicted by our resident statistician, John Levison, the winners were Clark Schofield (Hillingdon Triathletes) and Ruth Hutton (SLH), full results will be up shortly for both the triathlon and the duathlon.

World Long Distance (Elite)

GB's in the medals again! Leanda Cave has taken the gold medal, Erika Csomor (HUN) finished in 2nd and Catriona Morrison was in third place for the Bronze. Chrissie Wellington was 5th, Yvette Grice was 14th. In the men's race it was a clean sweep for the French with Julien Loy taking the win with Xavier Le Floch second and Sebastien Berlier third. Best GB result was Fraser Cartmell in 12th, Stephen Bayliss was 20th, Joe Gambles was 22nd and Alun Woodward 29th. Age group results are still coming through, try the ITU website:

Lifetime Fitness

In the $250,000 race out in Minneapolis the honours (and the bigger bucks) went to Greg Bennett (AUS), Bruno Pais (POR) and Craig Alexander (AUS) for the men and Vanessa Fernandes (POR), Emma Snowsill (AUS) and Julie Dibens for the women. Julie came out of the swim with the leading women and promptly stuck a two minute advantage into the bike leg but it wasn't enough as Fernandes and Snowsill both managed to outrun her and then some. Looks like Michelle was a no-show.

French Grand Prix

Well, yesterday's results are old hat - Javier Gomez managed to get himself red-carded for a transition violation (we think he failed to properly put his helmet in the box at T2) which promotes Kahlefeldt to the win, Will Clarke to second and Frederic Belaubre to third. Stu Hayes was 5th, Alistair Brownlee was 6th - a great effort for his first outing in this tough series, Tim Don was 12th after getting into trouble on the swim and missing the pack which a 15:52 fastest run split couldn't resolve. Nathan Shaw was 23rd, Richie Nicholls, who continues to impress with his transition from duathlon, was 30th with a top 10 run split of 16:35, Aaron Harris 36th, Fraser Cartmell 40th, Mark Threlfall 45th, and Blair Cartmell 65th.

The women's race results are unchanged but we can now add Carole Bridge at 10th, Merga Kiviranta at 14th (no idea who she is!), Alice Hector 15th and Vicky Holland 16th.
