After battling a chest infection before Hamburg and with it lingering on for a few weeks , I’m really happy to be back , maybe 95% healthy , and racing well again!
I had a very bad experience in the Rio Olympic Test event so I was hungry for a good result this time.
My 4th place is an equal career best in the World Triathlon Series so I’m thrilled about my performance. I’m happy with the way I raced and ran myself into 2nd with 1 lap left to go. It took a lot out of me and I didn’t have much left for the sprint for podium in the final kilometer.
Every race is a huge battle for a podium and you have to deliver an extraordinary effort these days to get it. It’s my 3rd time coming close to the podium this season. This was my closest yet. I won’t give up and I will keep pushing to be on the podium.
I’m probably even more excited about my 7th WTS ranking with only the final race in Chicago left for me. I look forward to give one final push in training and that I can deliver a good result in Chicago to secure my first top ten WTS season finish.
