Junior Women Review

Reigning European Junior Champion Georgia Taylor-Brown put in another supreme performance to win the ETU Tiszaujvaros European Cup.

The Brit, who won her semi final heat, comfortably powered away from her rivals on the run, having worked well in a group of three to establish a strong position.

Sophie Coldwell and Holly Grice worked with Taylor-Brown on the bike but couldn’t keep up on the run. Coldwell pipped Grice on the final lap to win the silver medal with the Australian having to settle for third and the bronze medal.

Sophie Coldwell and Sian Rainsley put in a spirited swim to lead heading into T1 with Holly Grice, a winner in hear semi final heat, also following close by.

Georgia Taylor-Brown followed in 4th and Kristin Ranwig was 5th as they embarked on a 12km bike.

But Taylor-Brown was quickly on the pace and burst into a lead. Grice and Coldwell went with her and the trio quickly established a 16 second lead over the chase group of 5 which included Jaz Hedgeland, Jodie Duff (both AUS), Kristin Ranwig (GER), Sian Rainsley and Leah Peploe (both GBR).

The lead trio maintained their pace through the second lap, with the chasers only able to nick a second off the lead. But a monster final lap gave the leading group a mammoth lead and once on the run there was no stopping Taylor-Brown.

She said: “It’s such a good atmosphere here and it was great to get a good blast out before the Worlds. In a semi final you want to take it easy as possible, yesterday was like a Sunday run so it was good to get a hard run out today.

“I ran hard into transition and then me, Sophie and Hollie worked really hard on the bike and got a good pace on. It was a really good race.”
