Last year it was 27 medals, and today at the Standard Distance ITU Age-Group Duathlon World Championships – part of day one at the Pontevedra ITU Multisport World Championships – the total haul from the British Age-Group squad was 30. That follows up on 26 medals earlier today over the Sprint distance.

Catch up on all of the reports from Pontevedra 2019:

There were eight Gold medals this year and two of those – Lee Piercy and Rachel Wiseman – defended titles won last year in Fyn, Denmark. Not only that, they were also the fastest British athletes overall.

Rachel took that a stage further by being the fastest female Age-Group athlete across all categories. It was some performance… the next fastest finisher was seven and half minutes slower, with Rachel seemingly setting the fastest times on the first run, bike and second run too. I think you can all that a great day out.
