2013 Age-Group Sprint World Championships
Dozens of new ITU World Champions were crowned today in the 2013 Age-Group Sprint World Championships, as thousands of athletes toughed it out in wet and cold conditions in Hyde Park. To everyone that did, well done! Here is our social wrap.
- Hundreds of athletes lined up for the first waves from 8am in Hyde Park...
- and first across the line was Norway's Gustav Iden, taking the win in the men's 16-19 category.
- Catch all the video highlights here.
- There was plenty of team pride at the finish line.
- And lots of muddy faces as the rain kept coming.
- But some of the loudest cheers were for some of the athletes that took the longest to get there. Including these guys who had an all out sprint for the line, in the men's 70 to 74 category...
- And New Zealand's Alec Hill who collected the men's 80-84 world title.
