A small group of British paratriathletes had a weekend to remember at the ITU World Paratriathlon Event in Detroit, USA yesterday (17 August), with two golds and two silvers in the bag.
Ryan Taylor won gold in the PT2 category, finishing just over a minute ahead of second-place finisher Andy Lewis (GBR). George Peasgood won silver in the PT4 category, and Stefan Hoggan finished sixth.

On the women’s side, Clare Cunningham picked up gold in the PT4 category – her third ITU medal for 2015, having won the Buffalo City ITU World Paratriathlon event last March and picked up silver in London.
