Emma continued her impressive World Cup success and was crowed champion in the super-sprint final (The super sprint race format comprises a 400-metre swim, 10-kilometre bike and finishes with a 2.5-kilometre run.)
Emma once again proved that she’s Australia’s rising star earning gold after racing across two days of competition at the 2018 Chengdu ITU Triathlon World Cup.
“The smile is back again. I am really happy with the win,” exclaimed Jeffcoat.
With Emma's strong ocean swimming and Surf Life Saving background, she led the women through the swim. Out on the bike course the field of women separated immediately into three distinct groups.
Gorman, Jeffcoat, Sega and Bianca Bogen (GER) led the race and Australia’s Tamsyn Moana-Veale and China’s Mengying Zhong were at the front of the chase group riding 15-seconds down from the leaders.
The lead group of women recorded a quick transition, of approximately 20-seconds, to stride out on the run course.
Jeffcoat surged ahead to break away from the field and come away with the World Cup win today. Her race was perfect and the talented Australian dominated all three disciplines of today’s race.
“It was always my strategy to use my strong swim and bike to get away. I was always ready to be adaptable no matter what happened. The ideal situation played out today. The four of us worked really hard from the start. I really love the sprint and super sprint format! It’s hard from the go and that’s how I race,” Jeffcoat said.
