Nicky Samuel beat the weather in Mooloolaba

The New Zealander Nicky Samuels achieved her first triumph in the triathlon World Cup by beating the waves, the cold and the rain on the Mooloolaba circuit (Australia) and surpassing the two-time world champion, the Australian Emma Moffatt and the 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 hindered their performance for the rest of the segments. These weather conditions were too harsh for many triathletes who abandoned the cycling sector.

Samuels, who took a risk on the bike, gained a lead of more than a minute that he was then able to maintain in the race on foot.

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

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