Switzerlands Nicola Spirig victorious at ITU Cozumel World Cup
It was only Nicola Spirig's (SUI) third ITU race since winning gold at the London 2012 Olympic Games, but she made it three-for-three with the top finishing time on Sunday at the Cozumel World Cup. Lisa Perterer (AUT) improved on her third-place finish from last year to take the silver, and Yuliya Yelistratova (UKR) finished third for her second-straight World Cup podium finish.
Sophie Coldwell (GBR), Anastasia Abrosimova (RUS), Erin Jones (USA) and Carolina Routier (ESP) led the field out of the water, but after one lap of the bike 34 women were part of the lead group including the three podium finishers. Though there were just over 60 women on the start list, only 20 seconds separated the top 55 in the field as they left the second transition to start the run.
With a number of fast runners in the group and the heat starting to rise, the field broke apart a bit on the first lap of the run, which worked well for Spirig.
Clocking in at 58:47, Spirig grabbed her second consecutive World Cup title in Cozumel. Perterer was not far behind in 58:55. Yelistratova echoed those sentiments after earning bronze, adding to the bronze she won last weekend at the Alanya World Cup in 58:58.
