Duathlon: Emma Pooley wins ITU Long Distance Duathlon World Championships

September 10, 2014

Emma Pooley has won the World Long Distance Duathlon championships in her first outing representing GB in the sport.

The tough course which consisted of a 10km run, 150km bike ride and final 30km run suited Pooley, she finished more than half an hour ahead of the second place finisher in a time of 6:47:27 and broke the course record.

Pooley controlled the race from line to line, she lead the first 10km run before clocking a 16 minute advantage on the bike and eventually sailed over the finish line to seal a decisive win.

There were other successes for the British Team in the age group categories with a gold medal for Angela McGurk (30-34) in 09:45:58 and silver for Kirsti Sharratt (45-49) in 8.42.38.
