Gwen Jorgensen wins ITU World Cup in New Zealand

American triathlete Gwen Jorgensen continued her dominating winning streak with a win at the 2016 ITU World Cup in New Plymouth, with Kiwi triathlete Andrea Hewitt coming second and Kirsten Kasper (USA) coming third.


“I have been in New Plymouth for a couple weeks now because my coach is originally from here and it has been great, the community has been so welcoming. I have loved being here,” Jorgensen said.

“I came here, there was a lot of good and tough athletes, a lot of fast swimmers so it was a good test. We were really pushing it on the swim, the bike and the run, so it was a really hard race. Next week I will start my WTS debut I guess for 2016 in Gold Coast, but the sole focus for me in August 20th, the Rio Olympics, so all of this has just been kind of training for that.”
