Jonathan Brownlee had come second in the men’s elite World Triathlon Grand Final in Auckland New Zealand.
This leaves him first overall in the series.
What they neglected to mention is that my cousin Elise Salt, running for New Zealand, came 8th in the Junior Women’s race.
Elise couldn’t wait to represent NZ at the Junior Elite World Champs and it seems like she didn’t hang about in the race itself, finishing just 31 seconds behind the winner.
And at only 17 she has another year in the category.
We are all incredibly proud of her and looking forward to seeing her in London next year!
