Defending champion Sam Warriner returns to Salford

Britain’s Michelle Dillon will be looking to emulate her 2004 Salford victory having enjoyed a successful start to her season with podium finishes at the Lisbon World Cup and World Duathlon Championships. She will be joined on the starting pontoon by Andrea Whitcombe who just missed out on a medal at the European Championships in Copenhagen, where she finished fourth.

Will Clarke’s sister, Rosie, 20, will race as an elite in Salford. The talented brother and sister are both based at the Loughborough High Performance Centre.

New Zealand’s Sam Warriner returns to Salford as defending champion in the women’s race. Originally from Alton, Warriner will return to Britain intent on victory in front of family members still living in Hampshire.

Cllr Merry, leader of Salford City Council commented: “Salford Quays has established itself as a world class sporting venue, and we are delighted that the BG Triathlon World Cup is returning for the fifth time to the city. We look forward to welcoming both athletes and spectators on 29 July to what promises to be a spectacular sporting occasion."

Heather Williams, British Triathlon’s Programme Performance Manager said: “The Salford BG Triathlon World Cup provides us with a great opportunity to showcase our best athletes and we are grateful to Salford City Council for their continued support of the race. This race marks the first step on the road to Olympic qualification with the opportunity to claim a place on the World Championships team, and the first of three Olympic selection races.”

Editors notes:

The full distance race in Salford comprises a 1500m swim, 40km bike ride and 10km run.
