30 June 2018 – Poznan, Poland: After a gruelling two-day battle for Super League Triathlon qualification in Poznan, Poland.
Emma Jeffcoat claimed the top spot in the women’s Super League Triathlon Qualifier races in spectacular style.
In warm and sunny conditions, Emma was awarded a ‘Golden Ticket’ qualification spot for the 2018-19 SLT Championship Series, along with eight further athletes across the men’s and women’s races who also qualified for the main series events this season.
“I’m thrilled to come to Poznan and execute on exactly what I came here for – a ticket into the Championship Series. I love to race hard from the go and the Super League formats reward that! I’ll be working hard now to put my best foot forward to hopefully earn a spot on the podium at the Championship Series starting in Jersey.”
After a great start and coming out of the swim at the front of the pack, Emma made her way into the lead on the bike, but the wet and slippery conditions snuck up on her, and in Emma's words; "we had a break off the front and came into that slippery corner too fast in the rain, I think we got a little too excited! But hey, got back up and still put in a solid effort!"
We think you did too Emma, great work after a set back, finishing in 12th.
