GB Age-Group medals: Duathlon World’s – Standard Distance

Penticton

Lee Piercy and Gill Fullen lead home the Brits in Penticton

After Saturday’s Sprint Distance Duathlon (report/results HERE), the 2017 ITU Standard Distance Duathlon World Championships were held in at the Penticton ITU Multisport Festival in Canada.

There was a serious case of Deja Vu for the fastest British athletes. Both Lee Piercy (40-44) and Gill Fullen (50-54) repeated their Gold medals from 12 months ago in Aviles, and once again both were also the fastest Brits over the Standard Distance. Gill now has 11 podiums (from 11 starts) and nine Gold’s in her ITU/ETU career, to add to wins this year at the Outlaw Half Nottingham and course record at the Outlaw Full. The recovery continues… what an athlete she is. Lee is now also into double figures, with 10 ITU/ETU podium of which seven are Gold’s, all in Duathlon.

Top 3 fastest overall British athletes:

MEN

  1. Lee Piercy – 1:52:04 (40-44 Gold)
  2. Simon Cole – 1:54:28 (35-39 – Silver)
  3. Daniel Geisler – 1:56:59 (30-34 Bronze)
