New Zealand beat British quartet in Edmonton mixed relay

A young New Zealand team defeated Great Britain in the mixed relay in Edmonton to give the Kiwis their first victory in this format in the World Triathlon Series.


All aged under 23, the quartet was anchored by Hayden Wilde who burst away from 2016 Rio Olympian Gordon Benson on the run to win by 9sec, with the USA third and the Australians fourth after serving a time penalty after a botched handover.

The win came despite Wilde squandering a lead at the start of the final leg after he went off course during the 300m swim.
