  1. Coldwell leads Brits in women's race

    The leading three in the women’s series standings (Katie Zaferes and Great Britain’s Jess Learmonth and Georgia Taylor-Brown) are not racing in the women’s event this weekend in Edmonton.

    GB will have Jonny Brownlee, Sophie Coldwell and Beth Potter on the start line this weekend.

    It means Zaferes’ US team-mate Taylor Spivey will be looking for her first win of the season. Spivey has already posted a silver in the Abu Dhabi race and a bronze in Yokohama, where the USA swept the podium.

    She herself will be wary of another US athlete, Summer Rappaport, who has also been on the podium twice this season.

    The remaining events in this year’s series are next month’s Olympic test event in Tokyo (15-16 August) and then the Grand final in Lausanne (29 August- 1 September). Next year’s Edmonton event will be the 2020 Grand Final next year.

  2. France retain mixed relay title

    Team France held off Germany – almost on the line, to retain their title as Mixed Relay World Champions and win a third title in five years in Hamburg at the start of the month.

    Current World Series leader Vincent Luis produced a burst in the last 500m of the final leg to leave host nation Germany’s Justus Nieschlag behind after the pair broke away from Spain, Belgium and eventual bronze medallists Australia in the bike ride.

    Great Britain’s Jess Learmonth’s first leg saw her have problems with her helmet on the bike ride and GB struggled to get back into contention after that.

    Close to a minute behind as Jonny Brownlee passed over to Georgia Taylor-Brown for the third leg, GB were taken to a final placing of 10th, more than two minutes off the medal positions, by Alex Yee on the final leg.

  3. What happened last time?

    Great Britain's Non Stanford moved up to fifth in the World Triathlon Series by winning in Hamburg. The 30-year-old finished in a time of 59 minutes and 24 seconds.

    Georgia Taylor-Brown took fifth while compatriots Vicky Holland and Sophie Coldwell finished eighth and 13th respectively.

    France's Cassandre Beaugrand finished seven seconds behind the winner with American Summer Rappaport in third, 18 seconds behind Stanford.

    In the men's race, GB's Jonny Brownlee was forced to pull out due to mechanical problems after being involved in a huge bike crash.

    Team-mates Tom Bishop and Alex Yee were also involved in the crash, meaning they both finished well back in 38th and 43rd respectively, with Yee the highest-ranking Briton in 13th overall.

    Australia's Jake Birtwhistle won the men's race, beating Frenchman Vincent Luis in a sprint finish. Luis' second-placed finished moved him top of the overall standings with 4,125 points.

  5. Get Inspired: How to get into triathlon

    Get Inspired


    Like running, swimming or cycling? Fancy doing all three, one after the other? If you answered yes to the previous two questions then triathlon is the sport for you!

    The Olympic distances are a 1.5km swim, followed by a 40km cycle, rounded off with a 10km run. But don't feel daunted, it really is for everybody, as 63-year-old Grandma Sue Faulkner proved in 2015!

    The sport has a range of distances and formats to cut your teeth on, and as long as your daily exercise includes all three disciplines, you can call yourself a triathlete with pride.
