There were three days of World Triathlon Series action this past weekend. While we saw the Elite Men, Elite Women and Mixed Relay races in Hamburg, the weekend started earlier for the top tier of paratriathletes.

The Bassin Olympique at Parc Jean-Drapeau and the Gilles-Villeneuve race track provided the location for World Triathlon Para Series Montreal, the second round of the WTPS. The next one of course will be in Swansea, South Wales on August 6.

Paralympic Champions on top

Living up their favourite status were Tokyo 2020 champions Jetze Plat (PTWC) from the Netherlands and Susanna Rodriguez (PTVI of Spain, who was guided in Canada by Sara Loehr).

Both continue to excel and will of continue to be the favourites every time they race this season.


Silver into Gold

Several athletes who were silver medallists at the Paralympic Games last year took gold in Montreal. Lauren Parker (AUS), who lost out to Kendall Gretsch (USA) in that thrilling finish in Tokyo, took the win in Montreal by a big margin.

Grace Norman (USA) in PTS5 and Haley Danz (USA) in PTS2 also took maximum points in Canada.


Home winner

Just as the Brits will in Cardiff, local expectations were on Stefan Daniel in the PTS5 category. The bronze medallist from Tokyo delivered on those hopes to top Chris Hammer (USA) – World Champion in Abu Dhabi – on home turf.

The Brits

The small British entry included silver medals for Finley Jakes (PTS4) and for Commonwealth Games bound Oscar Kelly (guided by Charlie Harding), in the PTVI category. Still new to the international circuit, they put up a great display versus Kyle Coon (USA), who also won in Yokohama.

Michael Salisbury (PTS5), another athlete who was racing in only his second international paratriathlon event, followed up second place at the European Championships with ninth in Montreal.
