Fifth Win for Warriner
NZ athletes made another strong showing in the eleventh leg of the 2007 BG Triathlon World Cup Series. The event in Tiszaujvaros, Hungary, saw three podium finishes for NZ competitors. Samantha Warriner became the first NZ woman in the event’s 11-year history to win at Tiszaujvaros, jumping to No.2 in the world rankings as a result. “This is my fifth [series] win and every win is better because you have to work so much harder to get it,” she said. Debbie Tanner, ranked world No.3, won bronze in the women’s event and Kris Gemmell took silver in the men’s. Four races remain in the 2007 series.
