London ITU Dextro Triathlon

The previous weekend saw the final test event for the 2012 Olympic Triathlon venue in Hyde Park London. In the Elites it was not surprising to see a home win in the mens race for Alistair Brownlee and in the female race Helen Jenkins also won this for UK and pleasing to see her on top of the podium as she has been consistently at the top end of the race all season. Her consistency also showing in her current 4th ranking in the World Championship Series points.

From an Age group perspective, two very pleasing results with Parys being the fastest female age grouper overall, showing a nice to return to full fitness after injury & rehabilitation in the off season. Adding this victory to her Windsor Age group result in previous seasons, nice.

A more outstanding result was for Emma who took off a massive 10 minutes from last year and her previous pb and placing 3rd in age. This is a massive improvement over one season and showing that her fitness is peaking as she prepares for Beijing age group race next month. Great racing.
