Saturday’s Elite and Junior Finals at the Europe Triathlon Championships in Olsztyn, Poland saw close finishes – not a surprise in the super sprint format.

Germany led the way in the senior ranks while a Swedish athlete put multiple silver medals behind her to top the podium and become the European Junior Champion.


Germany leads the way

Great Britain’s Hollie Elliott was among the leaders out of the (wetsuit-legal) opening 300m swim, one of many British athletes racing here in the U23 category.

The flat course looked like it would lead to one large pack, but there was a split which saw five athletes come into T2 together. A duo of top German athletes, Nina Eim and Lena Meißner, were running side by side from the get-go, with Switzerland’s Cathia Schär in pursuit.

Eim was a repeat winner this year of the indoor European Triathlon Cup in Lievin, while Meißner was second at the Arena Games Triathlon Munich, so both are very familiar with short distances this season. Perfect for this super sprint format.

Only in the final 150m did Eim manage to pull clear and take the victory on the blue carpet.

As well as third place and bronze in the senior race, Cathia Schär took European U23 Championship gold.

Månsson strikes Junior gold

Sweden’s Tilda Månsson earned World and European Junior Championship silver medals in 2021 – she made the final step to the top of the podium here. Leading the group in T1, even a poor transition wouldn’t derail her progress as the fastest run split took her to a relatively comfortable win.
