She has made an impressive start to her multisport career this season, with 3rd at the Senec ITU Triathlon European Cup in May and 2nd at the Nancy ETU Duathlon European Championships in April.

Meanwhile, Adam Bowden came fifth in the men’s race, finishing in 1:43.51. Todd Leckie finished in tenth position, despite breaking both elbows on a training accident earlier this year.
