WTS Yokohama 2015: Gwen Jorgensen wins in the wet

No surprises in Japan as Gwen Jorgensen (USA) continued her unassailable run of form at WTS Yokohama with yet another victory, while Britain’s Non Stanford finished an admirable seventh in her first competitive race for 20 months.


Crossing the line alone with a lead of over one minute, the win for Jorgensen marks her ninth World Triathlon Series victory in a row and catapults her back to the number one position in the Threadneedle Rankings.

Taking the silver medal was Ashleigh Gentle (AUS), who raced perhaps her best performance of her career to earn her first WTS podium. Fellow Australian Emma Moffatt also joined her compatriot on the podium when she took bronze to earn her first medal since the 2013 WTS Grand Final in London.
