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...

Luis crowned ITU World Champion, Blummenfelt discovers WTS gold in Lausanne

ITU - novinky - So, 31/08/2019 - 16:36
For a season that has had it all, the men’s WTS Grand Final delivered the ultimate final chapter on Saturday, with heroics from Norway’s Kristian Blummenfelt and defending champion Mario Mola but, ultimately, France’s Vincent Luis grabbing the glory, digging as deep as he could to be crowned the 2019 ITU World Champion. “That was a really tough race, I can’t believe it. The final 3km seemed like 10km for me, but the crowd was amazing, my parents were here and I just dug in really deep for them,” said an emotional Luis. “I just knew I needed to follow Mario as close as I could but I got dropped so just did my best to stay in touch and do what I needed to. You can’t buy a world title… beating guys like Mario and Javii… it is great to have my name with theirs.” — The race couldn’t have begun much better for Luis, who put himself out front early in the swim knowing that a top five finish would be enough to guarantee the title regardless of what happened ahead of him. It wasn’t long before South Africa’s Henri Schoeman worked his way to the front, too, Igor Polyanskiy (RUS) and Javier Gomez Noya also right in touch at the halfway point. Out of the water, Luis and teammate Pierre le Corre were just off the lead pair, Gomez 10 seconds back, Mola 20 seconds off the front, the likes of Hayden Wilde, Richard Murray and Alex Yee trailing further back with a lot to do on the bikes. It was Andrea Salvisberg (SUI) and Marten van Riel (BEL) who were first onto the gas, small pockets of riders behind them. The first lap of seven wasn’t even complete by the time Jonathan Brownlee and Blummenfelt had taken to the front, then it was Mola who hauled another group up to the mark and 23 riders were soon tucked in together. Once in that front pack, Mola was looking to put on the pace at every opportunity, along with the three Norwegians Blummenfelt, Casper Stornes and Gustav Iden. Even with the likes of Wilde, Jonas Schomburg (GER) and Tyler Mislawchuk (CAN) involved, the chase group couldn’t get organised and Murray dropped out, the leaders left to extend their lead gradually with every passing lap. It was up to a minute by lap three, then with 17km left it was Brownlee looking to start a breakaway, only to find no willing partners just over the halfway mark. Things then began to stretch out again a little with Ryan Fisher breaking away, Blummenfelt, Salvisberg and Stornes going with him. The move didn’t last long, but it did help stretch...

ITU announces 2019 Hall of Fame inductees

ITU - novinky - So, 31/08/2019 - 11:03
ITU today announced the six inductees for the fifth edition of the Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony took place at a gala dinner in Lausanne, the Olympic capital, the city that is hosting this week the 2019 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final. “It is with great pleasure that I welcome these inductees into the ITU Hall of Fame,” said ITU President and IOC Member Marisol Casado. “We are a very young International Federation, but we have been privileged enough to have witness some incredible athletes compete and accomplish amazing feats, so it is a great pleasure to have those great names included on our historical gallery”. Elite Women: Sheila Taormina, USA Sheila Taormina turned 50 earlier this year, so what better time to recognise a great all-round athlete whose achievements epitomise the universal appeal and accessibility of triathlon. Hailing from Michigan, Sheila’s background was always in swimming, captaining University of Georgia’s Bulldogs team in 1991. Five years later, she was part of the USA’s Olympic gold-winning 200m relay team at the Atlanta 1996 Games. Having taken some time out of the pool, Sheila found herself tackling triathlons to get into shape and fell in love with swim-bike-run, tackling her first World Cup in Lausanne in 1999. Almost exactly a year later, the American successfully qualified for the triathlon at the Sydney Olympics, finishing sixth. The following year, Sheila found herself on top of the ITU podium for the first time in the Cancun World Cup and in 2004 completed a remarkable journey by becoming World Champion. It is a mark of her determination and appetite for a challenge that Sheila would then go on to represent USA in modern pentathlon at Beijing 2008 to become the first woman to qualify for an Olympic Games in three different sports. For all these reasons, Sheila Taormina is hugely deserving of a place in the ITU Hall of Fame. “I can’t believe I am part of history. To see all these friend and meeting new friends. I haven’t been I triathlon circles in 15 years because life gets busy. The strange thing about doing different sports is you never really know where you belong but triathlon feels like family. Thank you to ITU for giving me the experience to race among class act women.” Emma Moffat, AUS Born in New South Wales and raised in Woolgoolga, Australia’s Emma Moffat is a two-time ITU World Champion and Olympic medallist who was a true great over the standard-distance format.

Spain’s Roberto Sanchez crowned U23 World Champion

ITU - novinky - Pá, 30/08/2019 - 16:46
Spain’s latest triathlon sensation Roberto Sanchez applied the early pressure over a taxing 10km run to wrap up the 2019 U23 World Championships in Lausanne thanks to an imperious performance that left the strong field trailing in his wake. A huge pack of athletes had flooded T2 together, almost all the pre-race favourites in contention, but it was the Spaniard who took proceedings by the throat, flying through the hilly final segment in little more than 32 minutes for the gold. Behind him, last year’s Junior World Champion Csongor Lehmann clearly enjoyed his first Grand Final among the U23s, pulling away from Ran Sagiv of Israel to collect the silver and bronze respectively. “I feel incredible,” said a thrilled Sanchez. “It was the perfect race for me. I was in the second group at the beginning of the bike course but we managed to work together and chase down the leaders. In the first lap of the run I gave it all and managed to open a 20-second gap, and then it was just a matter of maintaining it. This is the World Championships and I knew that there were really good runners in the field, I’m so happy with how the race went. — The men took to the pontoon on Lake Geneva with gold in their sights, but it was Australia’s Matthew Hauser who set the early pace in the water, leading the field round the first buoy, congestion behind as the likes of Seth Rider (USA) and Tayler Reid (NZL) sought a clear line. Chile’s Diego Moya put together another assured swim, Hungary’s Lehmann brothers Bence and Csongor also well set as they came to the end of the 1.5km. It was Reid and Rider first into transition, Hauser first to put the hammer down on the bike, crowd favourite Fabian Meeusen sticking close over the opening stages and attacking the first climb. What had been a strung-out field soon came together behind them, Brazil’s Kaue Willy and Simon Westermann (SUI) among those to merge into a 26-deep pack. Ran Sagiv was working hard to try and get his small group and Sanchez in touch, and as the lead group grew, it also stretched further away, 60 seconds the lead over chasers like Ben Dijkstra (GBR) and Charles Paquet after five laps of eight, the Canadian having fallen and remounted. New Zealand’s Kyle Smith and Portugal’s Vasco Vilaca were doing the lion’s share of the work out front for the leaders and at the bell, Anton Ponomarev (RUS) was also looking fresh enough to find a big finish. That effort had left little in the legs...

Gutsy run earns Emilie Morier U23 World title

ITU - novinky - Pá, 30/08/2019 - 13:52
It was across a blistering first three laps of the 10km run at the 2019 U23 World Championships that Emilie Morier was able to write the records in Lausanne, digging into her reserves to summon an almighty effort for the gold. Pulling away from the likes of Olivia Mathias (GBR) and Kira Hedgeland (AUS) straight out of T2, the French star never looked back, only tiring over the final kilometre, by which time the title was already hers. “It’s an amazing day for me and I worked very hard during the race. I had a very good performance in Tokyo and today I am World Champion. All my family are here and I am really emotional. I stayed focussed but it was a tough race, that last lap was so difficult but now I am World Champion.” — The U23 women took to the pontoon at midday, a 1.5km swim ahead of them as they dived into Lake Geneva. Sweden’s Emma Varga was the first to find her rhythm, threatening to pull away after a great start, only for Hungary’s Dorka Putnoczki and Sophie Alden (GBR) to find their groove and lead the field out at the halfway stage and back into the water. Morrier and Erika Ackerlund were also going well, before Hedgeland found her stroke and put herself out front as they finally put the swim behind them and flew into T1. Hedgeland wasted no time stepping on the gas and after an excellent transition, while Ackerlund’s was the last name able to tag onto the front pack of eleven riders that also included Therese Feuersinger (AUT) and Raz Poradosi (ISR). First it was Alden who fell away as the hill took its toll, while homing in but still some way back were Kate Waugh (GBR) and German duo Lisa Tertsch and Lena Meissner, Feuersinger just in their sights. With Mathias driving things forward ahead, the gap grew from 35 seconds to 50 and at the bell would be just over a minute, with Putnoczki the next to drop back. Fully aware of the strong runners behind, Morier knew that even a 65-second lead may not be enough over a hot and hilly 10km run so she immediately laid down the gauntlet to those around her as they came out of T2, stretching away for a first lap that was over 20 seconds quicker than that of next-best Mathias. Tertsch and Waugh could match the leader’s pace on lap two, and as Ackerlund’s challenge drifted away, it was Mathias who found herself all alone in second place, Hedgeland 18 seconds back, Feuersinger 45 seconds. While Morier slowly ground down to a jog over an exhausted final kilometre, the lead was such...

Fully aware of the strong runners behind, Morier knew that even a 65-second lead may not be enough over a hot and hilly 10km run so she immediately laid down the gauntlet to those around her as they came out of T2, stretching away for a first lap that was over 20 seconds quicker than that of next-best Mathias. Tertsch and Waugh could match the leader’s pace on lap two, and as Ackerlund’s challenge drifted away, it was Mathias who found herself all alone in second place, Hedgeland 18 seconds back, Feuersinger 45 seconds. While Morier slowly ground down to a jog over an exhausted final kilometre, the lead was such...

Portugal’s Ricardo Batista takes World Junior title with powerful finale

ITU - novinky - Pá, 30/08/2019 - 10:06
The Olympic City began to warm up in more ways than one as the Junior men took to the pontoon on the edge of Lake Geneva for Friday’s 2019 World Championships, and it would be Portugal’s Ricardo Batista who took the honours thanks to a lightening-fast run, holding off the challenge of Lorcan Redmond (AUS) in second, Spain’s Sergio Baxter Cabrera finishing with the bronze.  “This is really unbelievable,” said Batista before his achievement could truly sink in. “I have trained very hard and very long for this, since my first year as a Junior. I was worried on the bike course, because we had too many athletes in our group so I was just trying to stay safe and save some legs. And then out of T2 I felt really strong, and was able to drop many athletes. It was a really great race.” — The sun was beating down on the athletes as they got underway for the sprint-distance battle, and it was Alessio Crociani (ITA) out of the water first with South African Jamie Riddle and Great Britain’s Marcus Dey for company. Brock Hoel (CAN) was some 20 seconds back at this stage, Batista keeping in check just over 10 seconds away from the leaders as they got out and onto the four-lap bike. Just ten athletes were together for much of that first loop but, driven by Andreas Carlsson (SWE), the chasers were soon on their tails, and by the end of lap one that group was 32-deep, all the while Radim Grebik (CZE) and home favourite Sasha Caterina (SUI) driving them forward from the front. That sheer weight of numbers made progress difficult for the leaders with seemingly nobody willing to make a move, Travis Saunders (RSA) and Ernesto Gonzalez (CRC) among those able to benefit and pulling the next pack into the mix as more than forty athletes streamed into transition for the second time. First to make their move on the run was Australian Joshua Ferris, Crociani right on his shoulder and Boris Pierre (FRA) also finding his rhythm, pulling to the front halfway through lap one. Again the climbs would shuffle the pack, however, and it was Portugal’s Batista who began to seize control, moving into position behind the front runners and then passing them, Lorcan Redmond in pursuit. Spain’s Baxter had put in one of the fastest first laps to haul himself into contention as well, but having hung off the front pair for as long as he could, his challenge began to fade. That left a two-man duel for the World title, and it was Batista who was able to find enough in the legs to...

Beatrice Mallozzi wraps up incredible year with Junior World title in Lausanne

ITU - novinky - Pá, 30/08/2019 - 09:00
The female Junior athletes got the 2019 ITU Grand Finals Lausanne underway on Friday morning, and it was a huge performance from Italy’s Beatrice Mallozzi to bring home a World title to go with May’s European victory in Weert. “This race meant so much to me,” said the Italian talent, who held her nerve to out sprint training partner Constanza Arpinelli to the line. “I had a good start to the run but in the second lap I had some problems with my stomach but I tried to focus and get to the finish for the win and I am very happy.” France’s Jessica Fullagar took the bronze.  — 
Nerves were jangling as the athletes lined up for the 750m swim, a false start meaning they all had to be brought back to the pontoon and go through the pre-race motions once again. By the time they emerged from the water it was Gabriela Ribeiro (POR), Kira Gupta-Baltazar (CAN), Barbara de Koning (NED), Mercedes Romero (MEX) and Erin Wallace (GBR) who were all into transition together and out onto the bikes. Two packs soon formed, Hong Kong’s Bailee Brown powering forward the 18 lead riders, Anja Weber (SUI) also looking to try and stretch things out at the front but with little success. Barbara De Koning had slipped back and was 15 seconds off the pace alongside Mallozzi, a 17-strong group a further 20 seconds behind them. Over the four laps the chasers managed to eat into that gap, though, and at the bell the lead was down to a little over 20 seconds. Sophia Green, Hannah Knighton and Constanza Arpinelli were also flying at this point, but the opening stages of the run would prove telling. From a front group of thirteen all in check out of T2, the contenders were soon whittled down on the first climb of two on the 5km run. France’s Jessica Fullager was pushing the early pace to see who could go with her, and it was only Hannah Knighton and the Italian pair of Arpinelli and Mallozzi who could keep the pace, Erin Wallace dropping back. Knighton and Fullager had delivered incredible final bike laps to get to that point, and it looked to have taken its toll on the New Zealander as she began to fade on lap two. Then it was Arpinelli taking to the front with 500m to go, Mallozzi looking uncomfortable as she held her stomach, but it was after the final climb that Italy’s European Junior champion gritted her teeth to battle through the discomfort. As Fullagar faded, it was between the Italian training partners, and Mallozzi underlined her status as a name to...
