Wet Win in Vancouver

Whangarei triathlete Samantha Warriner has won the US $100,000 BG Triathlon World Cup in Vancouver, clawing back from 20th place to beat American Sarah Haskins and Australian Erin Densham in wet and cold conditions. “The rain coming down made it quite tricky on the bike, especially on the S-bends but it has the hill in it and the technical corners so it’s a good course,” said the 35-year-old teacher. “The crowds lined the route and on the run I heard ‘go Kiwi’ so I was stoked.” The Vancouver course will host the ITU world championships next year.
