Melanie Mquaid, Cros Triathlon World Champion

The Canadian Melanie Mcquaid, with a great history of podiums in XTERRA competitions in recent years, has managed to be crowned today, in "El Anillo" (Cáceres) 2011 Cross Triathlon World Champion, with a total time of 1:43:02

The second to reach the finish line was the American Shonny Vanlandingham, 1:43:25 and the third, also American, Emma Garrard 1:43:43

In the first transition he has not given clues about the final classification, like the tests held this morning, the segment that has defined the final positions has clearly been cycling. The Spaniards who started as favourites, Zuriñe Rodríguez and Helena Herrero, have corroborated expectations, reaching the finish line in 6th and 10th position respectively.

In the interview with Zuriñe Rodríguez, who did a total time of 1:47:34, he told us upon entering the finish line and after a hard race in which he never lost his smile "it is one of the most hard I have run, despite the fact that this morning we feared a hard segment on the bike due to the rain and muddy ground, the ground was firmer than expected. I have lost positions in this segment, but even so, I have enjoyed every pedal stroke I have given, and the race has been the definitive one to put me in a good position at the finish line”

Also highlight the performance of Spanish Helena Herrero, current Champion of Spain of Triathlon Cros 2010, Natalia Raña and Saleta Castro.
