London Triathlon: Helen Jenkins ‘had a bit of aggression to let out’

One week on from the Rio 2016 triathlon test event, two-time ITU world champ Helen Jenkins bounced back to win the female elite race at London Triathlon today (Sunday 9th August).


The Welshwoman finished over a minute ahead of fellow ITU racer Charlotte McShane (AUS), and almost five minutes ahead of bronze medallist Emma Pallant (GBR). 

Jenkins has had a tough run of luck in recent times, only returning to racing last year after a two-year absence due to injury. She was forced to pull out of the Rio 2016 triathlon test event last weekend after a tumultuous swim.
