Headline results from the Elite races from the 2013 Virgin Active London Triathlon show victories for the in-form Jodie Stimpson and France's Gregory Rouault, another athlete coached by the 'D-Squad' team of Darren Smith who has done such a fine job in progressing the development of Stimpson over the past 12 months.

In the ladies race, 2012 Olympian dominated the swim as expected and she maintained that lead on the bike too, leaving Stimpson to produce a strong running performance to secure another London title.

On her win, Stimpson said “Lucy was cycling really well. I tried to close the gap on her but I couldn't beat her and so I used the run as a chance to catch up and take the lead. It was a fantastic event, you can't beat racing on home soil – it brings you to another level.”

France's Gregory Rouault prevented London regular Stuart Hayes from taking a second win at the event in what was his 15th attempt.

A happy Frenchman said “Last week after Hamburg was rough. I struggled a bit but I needed to get a good swim and I did. There's a fantastic atmosphere here today and it's lovely to see how many people get involved. I wish every country had a big triathlon like this.”

Second place for Hayes was also enough to secure second place (to Tom Bishop) in the British Triathlon Super Series which concluded at the ExCeL based event. Hayes added: “I'm happy with 2nd but I really wanted to win. I've done this race fifteen times and I love it.”
