With six of this year’s 10 World Triathlon Series races now done and dusted, we take a look at how the table stands – and how the Brits are faring.


In the women’s Columbia Threadneedle Rankings, Gwen Jorgensen has built up 4000pts thanks to five wins in five races this season, her latest win being London just a few days ago.

Her nearest rivals are fellow American Katie Zaferes (3645pts) and New Zealand’s Andrea Hewitt (2910pts), while fast-rising US athlete Sarah True is fourth with 2632pts. In fact, the Stars and Stripes have now earned 12 of the 18 women’s medals awarded in WTS races so far this season.

Jorgensen isn’t expected to race at the next three WTS races in Hamburg, Stockholm or Edmonton, instead saving her strength for the final in Chicago this September. This means Zaferes could win the series if she were to win the Grand Final and Jorgensen finishes outside the top five.

The only Brit in the top-10 is Vicky Holland (1386pts), whose efforts earned her a win in Cape Town. Other Brits include 2013 world champ Non Stanford in 38th place with 567pts, Helen Jenkins in 43rd with 501pts, super swimmer Lucy Hall in 48th with 409pts, WTS debutante Emma Pallant in 49th with 397pts, and last year’s title contender Jodie Stimpson in 49th (230pts).
