A tough day for Wurtele and Naeth

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - FEATURES -

Heather Wurtele started her day with a solid swim, trail­ing Swal­low by just un­der five min­utes, and ap­peared ready to work her way to the front of the race on the bike. Then dis­as­ter struck as some­thing hap­pened to her rear derailleur and she sud­denly found her­self stuck in her hard­est gear. At­tempts to fix her bike failed and she was forced out of the race.

You could tell some­thing was wrong with An­gela Naeth as she ran to her bike in T1 – she had a no­tice­able limp. Naeth was the sec­ond fastest woman on the day on the bike, but was un­able to start the run due to a foot in­jury.
