The social story of #WTSCapeTown

The glorious Table Mountain was the backdrop of the third stop on the 2016 WTS calendar that brought one woman's first title since 2013 and another man's first title in the history of his career!

  2. While hometown hero Richard Murray was unable to compete due to his injury from the Gold Coast, we were lucky to have him in the commentary booth during both races!

  3. First up were the women, taking on the sprint distance course! Spaniard Carolina Routier dominated in the swim per usual, but this time she was joined by Bermuda's Flora Duffy.

  4. As she exited the waters with a marginal lead, Duffy decided to take a joy ride through the 5-lap course. She solo rode out in front of the chasers for the majority of the cycle!

  5. But because triathlon is not over until someone passes the finish tape, heading out onto the run a group of 5 women rushed out of the gate in the quest of grabbing that WTS gold medal.
  6. Ultimately it was Great Britain's Non Stanford that was able to come out on top as she broke away in the final lap! It was her first WTS title since 2013, so welcome back to the top of the podium Non... it missed you!

  7. British compatriot Jodie Stimpson followed shortly behind to grab the silver medal, while Duffy was finally able to get up on the WTS podium this season!
