Auckland, New Zealand is where the ITU World Triathlon Series 2015 continues this Sunday, with Jonny Brownlee and Lucy Hall among the athletes carrying British hopes in the first standard distance race of the year (1.5km swim/40km bike/10km run).


The elite women’s race will get underway at 12.50pm local time (11:50pm Saturday evening UK time), with series leader Gwen Jorgensen (USA) confirmed to start, along with compatriots Katie Zaferes – second at WTS Abu Dhabi a few weeks ago – and last seasons WTS Stockholm winner Sarah True.

Apart than Lucy Hall, the only other British female racing is Jessica Learmonth, 26, recently named into British Triathlon’s 2015 World Class Programme.
