A great day for Canada! Simon kicks off the 2008 campaign right where he left off in 2007, on top of the podium. Kathy Tremblay finished 5th (her best World Cup finish since a bronze in Mazatlan in 2006), and Colin Jenkins had a strong race, finishing 23rd. Aside from the strong Canadian team, one of the best performers had to be Hollie Avil, the 2007 Junior World Champion from Great Britain finished 3rd in her World Cup debut. The brits continue to prove they've got deep talent across the board. ITU Race Report here.

In the World Cup rankings, Tich drops to 4th, Simon moves into a tie for 5th, and Tremblay moves to 14th. Congrats to the athletes and their coaches Joel Filliol (Simon & Colin) and Philippe Bertrand (head coach of the Tri-o-Lacs Triathlon Club and Kathy Tremblay).
