Which Brits collected trophies in Samorin?

As well as a fine Pro race (report HERE), Age-Group racing at The Championship was very competitive on Sunday and, I predict, will continue to get even tougher over the next couple of years as awareness of this gem of a race increased.

Several British names, including Kona podium finishers and ITU / ETU Champions were attracted to Slovakia this year, which resulted in a total of 11 British athletes stepping on to the podium on Sunday evening at the prize presentation.
