Interview: Jenny Vincent, 2019 Award of Excellence winner

ITU - novinky - Út, 03/09/2019 - 11:46
The British Triathlon Federation’s Jenny Vincent received the 2019 Award of Excellence in Lausanne, given to individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to the promotion of female participation in triathlon. We caught up with her to hear how her initiatives have caught the imaginations of would-be athletes in the UK. 
When you joined BTF in 2010 was the promotion of gender equality something you were determined to work at right from the start? We have always been quite lucky as triathlon is quite a modern, gender-equal sport with the Elites competing in the WTS with fairly equal representation and coverage compared to some other sports. However, when I joined BTF, we didn’t have much awareness of the participation in terms of gender across all areas and levels of the sport. I had never participated in triathlon myself, and I had a real motivation to ensure that the sport was accessible and attractive to all. I signed up to a couple of tri’s myself to learn what it felt like to be a female beginner in our sport. At this point, This Girl Can was in its initial planning stage, but here was a campaign that we really believed in and saw a real opportunity to engage with the campaign, developing a strategy for women’s participation.   How intrinsic were you in the launch of the GoTri programme in 2013 and why do you think it gained so much traction among women? I was a regional manager when we started developing and trialling GO TRI. Having a beginner-focused programme, it made complete sense to me and since its introduction I have loved everything to do with GO TRI. I remember attending my first event at Lee Valley White Water centre (a London 2012 Olympic Venue) and seeing the great experience that those beginning their swim, bike and run journeys were having. I learnt so much in those initial months that I have taken with me to implement with the team to further develop GO TRI. We held some female focus groups in 2013-14 to learn about the barriers females faced when thinking about starting out in triathlon. We talked about imagery and language, like not using distances; don’t say a swim is 200m, instead say it’s 8 lengths, and inspirational case studies. We took these learnings seriously and built the GO TRI brand around them.    What are the key tenets of your Women’s Participation Strategy?  We aimed to improve knowledge and measurement of women’s participation, to positively raise the profile of triathlon among active...

Jenny Vincent wins 2019 ITU Women’s Committee Award of Excellence

ITU - novinky - Út, 03/09/2019 - 11:37
British Triathlon’s (BTF) Head of Participation, Jenny Vincent, is the winner of this year’s ITU Women’s Committee Award of Excellence for her efforts in promoting triathlon in Great Britain through the NF’s exceptional GO TRI programme. The annual prize is awarded to individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the promotion and inclusion of women in triathlon, part of ITU’s commitment to equality in the sport, and Jenny’s award reflects her remarkable achievements in the area. Joining British Triathlon in 2010, Jenny helped launch the GO TRI programme in 2013, designed to encourage beginners to take part in triathlon by providing a friendly and informal setting. A resolutely co-education programme, it nevertheless found particular traction and success among women looking to try the sport. Of the 27,400 participants engaged today in the GO TRI community, 59% are female. “When I joined BTF, we didn’t have much awareness of the participation in terms of gender across all areas and levels in the sport,” says Jenny. “I had never participated in triathlon myself, and I had a real motivation to ensure that the sport was accessible and attractive to all. I signed up to a couple of tri’s myself to learn what it felt to be a female beginner in our sport.” “We held some female focus groups in 2013-14 to learn about the barriers females faced when thinking about starting out in triathlon. We talked about imagery, language (don’t use distance – don’t say the swim is 200m but say it’s 8 lengths), inspirational case studies. We took these learnings seriously and built the GO TRI brand around them.” Two years on from the GO TRI launch, Jenny developed a Women’s Participation Strategy to ensure gender equality was considered in all areas of BTF’s work. She took on the management of the GO TRI programme in 2017 and re-launched it with a new look and an innovative approach to events that has been central to that success since, with no minimum distances to cover and pool as well as open-water swims to help widen their appeal. So far in 2019, 54% of race entrants have been women, while several women-only events have also been launched. The GO TRI active brand has found great success among women too, with 76% of attendees to the entry level, turn-up-and-take-part sessions being female. Within that, Jenny launched the Tri Something New programme, inspired by the launch of WTS Leeds four years ago to achieve engagement...

Knighton, Reid, Thorpe & Wilde bring home Mixed Relay gold for New Zealand

ITU - novinky - Ne, 01/09/2019 - 18:45
Team New Zealand brought home the gold after suffering the heartache of disqualification last year, conquering the Junior and U23 Mixed Relay World Championships with a magnificent leg by Hayden Wilde sealing another magnificent team performance. Hannah Knighton brought the Kiwis back up to contention with an excellent bike before Tyler Reid‘s swim built on her good work. Ainsley Thorpe kept the team’s momentum brilliantly, before Wilde pulled away on the bike to put enough daylight between himself and Alex Yee to ensure the gold went to team New Zealand. “I had one of my best swims and I had to hammer it to get on the back of that group,” said Wilde. “I knew Alex would be there, I rode with him all day yesterday, he was super strong on the hills. On the corner I absolutely hooked it and knew it would come down to just absolutely running hard. I am so stoked.” — In one of the most crowded start lists ever to be seen in a Mixed Relay event, 23 teams lined up in Lausanne in the search of the gold, all comprised of a heady mix of talent from across the previous two days’ Junior, U23 and, in the case of the likes of Wilde, Taylor Knibb (USA) and Nina Eim (GER) to name but three, Saturday’s Elite racing. Emilie Morier, crowned U23 female World Champion on Friday, showed that France - Elite World Champions two years in a row - was still ready to give it all to demonstrate their mastery of the format. She managed to get out of the water along with Sweden’s Emma Varga, followed closely by Olivia Mathias (GBR). Tamara Gorman (USA) caught them all on the bike, only to drop back again on the run, Nina Eim hauling Germany right back into contention. The second leg saw the likes of Ben Dijkstra (GBR) and Tyler Reid (NZL) heading down the chute and flying into the 300m swim. Reid quickly made up ground on the leaders, cutting a vital 7 seconds out of the lead, only for Portugal’s Vasco Vilaca to drop the hammer on the bike, initially dragging Boris Pierre and Reid with him, before they, too, were left chasing dust. At the same time, Koki Yamamoto brought Japan into contention, but while Vilaca had 15 seconds over the field off the bike, Ben Dijkstra laid down another incredible run leg to put Team GB into pole as he handed over to Kate Waugh. Waugh was looking comfortable as she exited the swim with the lead still intact and out onto the bike course, only for Taylor Knibb to lead the group chasing her down and onto her back wheel. A tough transition for her...

2019 World Paratriathlon Champions crowned at Lausanne Grand Final

ITU - novinky - Ne, 01/09/2019 - 17:15
The world’s best paratriathletes gathered for the 2019 Grand Final on Sunday afternoon, where 12 superb World Champions were crowned. The course was always going to test the technical abilities as well as the power on the bike and, with nowhere to hide, it truly brought the best out of the stacked fields across all classes. PTVI First off were the visually impaired PTVI athletes, with Jose Garcia and Brad Snyder making it through T1 with some daylight behind but the second wave with Dave Ellis (GBR) and Hector Catala looking to make up the gap once out of the water themselves. Meanwhile Canada’s Jessica Luomela was also already getting on to her tandem and hoping to stretch her lead. It was an impressive display on the bike as she flew into the corners and made light work of the climbs, but there was always the imminent threat of 2018 World Champion Susanna Rodriguez closing in once the run was underway. Catala was able to get the edge over Ellis and Aaron Schiedies (USA) and carve out a decent advantage, stretching away over the final lap to take the tape in style, 50 seconds ahead of Ellis in second, the American taking the bronze. Rodriguez did indeed catch and pass Luomela and Melissa Reid (GBR) to secure another world title by an incredible two-minute margin over Reid, Luomela finishing in third. PTWC Australia’s Nic Beveridge put in a superb swim in the men’s PTWC to put himself into a good position for a tough handbike course. Unfortunately for him, Jetze Plat was also strong through the water and once more proved untouchable on the bike. Almost three minutes faster than compatriot Geert Schipper on the middle segment, that set Plat up for another grandstand finish, his fourth consecutive World title. Schipper came home in second almost six minutes back, Joe Townsend putting together a fine run to grab the bronze. In the women’s race, the day belonged to Lauren Parker, who was second fastest in the water behind Netherlands’ Margret Ijdema before grabbing the tough bike section by the horns and devouring the hills to put herself into pole position heading into T2. USA’s Kendall Gretsch put herself into a podium position with an incredible run, but it wasn’t enough to catch the flying Australian, Germany’s Christiane Reppe coming home with the bronze. PTS5 Another excellent George Peasgood (GBR) swim saw him off to a great start in the men’s PTS5, Martin Schulz (GER) also going well heading into transition and out on the bike. Stefan...

Katie Zaferes imperious in Lausanne, closing incredible season as World Champion

ITU - novinky - So, 31/08/2019 - 19:13
Katie Zaferes became ITU World Champion on Saturday evening in the Olympic Capital Lausanne, sealing the greatest season of her career with a fifth WTS gold of the year. It all boiled down to another incredible battle with British duo Jessica Learmonth and Georgia Taylor Brown, but it was Zaferes delivering yet another big finish, pulling away from Learmonth down the final 200 metres to drink in the magic of the moment that a hard season had built up to. “I don’t even know if it has hit me yet, I had a lot of emotions and doubts coming in to this race but I’m just really happy right now,” said a thrilled Zaferes. “I worked really hard to get in the mental frame, I knew physically I was in the right frame, so I didn’t let it get to me too much. I’m just out there enjoying it and enjoying the process, and to do it on this course is amazing.” Second for Learmonth ensured she finished with the overall Series silver, third for Taylor Brown maintaining her place on the all important end-of-campaign podium for the second year. — It was Learmonth who was once again in command in the water, pulling away from the very first strokes to spearhead an initial lead group of seven that included the ever-excellent Vittoria Lopes (BRA), Taylor Spivey (USA), Summer Rappaport (USA) and Sophie Coldwell (GBR). Zaferes was 10 seconds back at the halfway re-entry, Flora Duffy 18 and Nicola Spirig (SUI) 30 seconds, and the gap to the front had almost doubled by the time the American was back out of the water and heading into transition for the first time, but in good company to work with to close in. Duffy was up with Zaferes, Learmonth, Coldwell, Spivey and Lopes in no time, and the six worked themselves into a rhythm led by the Bermudian double-World Champion. Another powerful cyclist was working her magic further back, home-crowd hero Spirig hauling a group that included the likes of Taylor Knibb (USA) and Vicky Holland (GBR) along with her. After 12km the gap was nearly 30 seconds and closing, and collectively they could have caused issues for Zaferes if they had bridged successfully. Duffy had other ideas, though, and her power saw Taylor Spivey and Sophie Coldwell dropped, leaving five flying out front. Again she took up the attack at the top of the hill on lap six and threatened to pull away. Though the door was shut again on Duffy’s latest hopes of success, the effort did mean that Spirig’s group was left trailing yet further behind, the...
