Nicky Samuel beat the weather in Mooloolaba

New Zealander Nicky Samuels achieved her first triumph in the triathlon World Cup, beating the waves, cold and rain at the Mooloolaba circuit (Australia) and surpassing the two-time world champion, the Australian Emma Moffatt and Chilean Bárbara Riveros Díaz who was third.

The prevailing bad weather conditions were key in the development of the test. The waves of almost one meter punished all the participants and weighed down their performance for the rest of the segments. These weather conditions were too harsh for many triathletes who dropped out of the cycling sector.

Samuels, who took risks on the bike, gained a lead of more than a minute that he was later able to maintain in the test on foot.

Bárbara Riveros gave a lesson in strength and took third place on the podium despite being penalized for an irregularity in the transition from bicycle to race.

As for the Spanish, Maria Pujol was disqualified and Ana Burgos retired in the cycling sector.
