The first race of the new ITU World Championship Series is in the books (for the women, at least), and Canadian women posted a strong showing with three top 10 finishes in Tongyeong, South Korea. Kathy Tremblay was 4th, Kirsten Sweetland 5th, and Lauren Groves 10th. Great job team!

Simon Whitfield, Brent McMahon and Kyle Jones will be in the mens race tomorrow.

Go Canada.


The Men's race looked liked an exciting affair, coming down to a sprint photo-finish between Bevan Docherty and Brad Kahlefeldt. Canada was well represented with Simon 14th, Kyle 19th and Brent 22nd. A good start to what will be a very competitive World Championship Series.
