Triple Paratri success for Brits in Tokyo

Lauren Steadman, Joe Townsend and Dave Ellis, guided by Tim Don, were the British winners as the Paratriathlon World Cup doubling as the Paralympic test event took place in Tokyo.


In what has been a difficult week for organisers, the races were switched to a duathlon after early morning water tests showed high levels of E-Coli in Odaiba Marine Bay.

It meant the traditional first leg of a 750m swim was replaced with a 2.5km run, with the usual 20km bike and 5km run to follow.
