Pontevedra ITU Duathlon World Championships 2019

The ‘scores on the doors’ total comes to 26 medals, of which eight were Gold. The sole British athlete to defend their title from Fyn 2018 was Jane Holmes in the F65-69 division.

Just to prove that medals don’t tell you everything, the two fastest British male athletes across all division – James Hodgson and Ben Cockburn – don’t feature in the medals roundup, such was the standard in the M25-29 category, while Gwen Kinsey was the fastest British female athlete by more than a minute and a half, was the third fastest overall too… but that was still ‘only’ good enough for Silver in the F45-49 category.

Fastest British athletes overall

MEN

1st – James Hodgson (4th, 25-29) – 58:24 – 6th fastest female AG athlete overall
