World Duathlon Champs: GB Standard Distance Age-Group medals

We look at how Great Britain fared in the Standard Age-Group racing at the World Duathlon Championships in Aviles on Sunday.

Following Saturday’s racing over the Sprint distance, it was the turn of Age-Group racing over the Standard Distance (10km / 40km / 5km) on Sunday at the World Triathlon Duathlon Championships in Aviles, Northern Spain.

Unlike Saturday’s draft-legal short distance event, it was back to the non-drafting format on Sunday.

While the format and distances changed, one thing remained statistically consistent: the GB Age-Group team exactly matched the 24 medal total gained on Saturday. Some 14 nations graced the awards podium this time around, and once again the Brits edged out the host nation Spain, who claimed 22 of the 70 medals awarded.


Fastest Age-Group athletes overall

Brits led the way in the men’s race, with Alex Doherty (35-39) and Bruce Raeside (40-44) the two fastest athletes overall. Alex last won the World Champs three years ago in Fyn, Denmark, while that was a first World Championship win for Raeside, who has won European medals every year since 2017.

Fastest female Brit, second overall was Katherine Stringer (25-29). Unfortunately for her, second fastest overall was also second fastest in her F25-29 category, though that was still one step up from her bronze medal in Pontevedra, two years ago.
