Jorgensen storms to victory at WTS Leeds

The home crowd could only stand and stare today as the 30-year-old from Wisconsin hunted down her fellow ITU athlete prey on the final 10km, to take her 17th WTS victory. The Brit team, which included Non Stanford, Vicky Holland, Jodie Stimpson, Jess Learmonth and Lucy Hall, took bronze, courtesy of Holland, behind Bermudan Flora Duffy in silver.


Brit swim power duo and Leeds residents Hall and Learmonth controlled the 1.5km first discipline, exiting Roundhay Park lake after 18:31mins, with bike specialist Duffy in tow.

While Holland was only several seconds back in sixth, a tricky wetsuit exit saw her miss the front trio, leaving her ensconced in the chase group along with Jorgensen.
