The Mixed Relay World Championships was a thrilling event which was won by a young French team! Australia crossed the line in second after a final sprint to pass the USA who finished in third place. The British team of Vicky Holland, Jonathan Brownlee, Jodie Stimpson and Tom Bishop had high hopes of challenging for the title however they fell just short of the podium, finishing in fourth place.

In Scotland, it was a quiet weekend with only the Stromness Sprint Triathlon taking place on Orkney. The event, organised by Orkney Triathlon Club, included over 30 participants and was won by Edinburgh University Triathlon Club’s Paul Kerr in 00:57:36. Shetland Triathlon Club’s Lynsey Henderson won the women’s race in 01:09:48.

In Canada, Isla Britton was competing in the Quebec Provincial Championships in Magog. Britton had a strong swim in choppy conditions, exiting the water in seventh place. After a fast transition and some good technical skills on a wet bike course, Britton moved to the front of the race. Losing her lead at the end of the bike course, Britton had a fantastic run which saw her cross the line in first place!
Congratulations to everyone raced this weekend!
