With no Tri Liverpool event this year, the British Elite Sprint Triathlon Championships were held on Sunday as part of the popular Bloodwise Blenheim Palace Triathlon.

An in-form Sophie Coldwell was a class apart in the women’s race, taking a big win in her eighth race at Blenheim, while Rio 2016 Olympian, Gordon Benson, came out on top in a close finish at the front of the men’s Elite race.
