Just two more races to go – the World Triathlon Series arrives in Edmonton this weekend, and there’s a very strong chance we could see more than one Brit up on the podium.


>>> WTS Edmonton 2014 round-up

As the last WTS race before the Grand Final in Chicago later this month, there’s bound to be some fast and furious racing over the sprint-distance course (750m swim/20km bike/5km run) in Canada this weekend.

Despite concerns over blue-green algae levels in Hawrelak Park Lake, it looks like the swim is definitely happening now that public health officials have given it the green light, saying toxin levels are “negative or extremely low”.

Women’s race

Britain’s Vicky Holland, Non Stanford and Helen Jenkins are all racing, with Holland and Stanford in particular enjoying a strong run of form at the moment. Their medal hopes will be fuelled by the absence of the USA’s Gwen Jorgensen, Katie Zaferes and Sarah True, who currently sit top of the points leaderboard.
