Amer­i­can Ellen Hart won her fourth world cham­pi­onship in the last few months. The 57-year-old took the ti­tle in Zell am See, won both the sprint and stan­dard dis­tance world ti­tles in Chicago, then de­fended her ti­tle in Kona. Rac­ing in her last full-dis­tance race, Amer­i­can Cherie Gru­en­feld suc­cess­fully de­fended her world ti­tle, tak­ing the lead with a mile to go.

Cana­di­ans dom­i­nated the women’s 65 to 69 age group, with Cullen Goodyear tak­ing first, Va­lerie Anne Gonzales fol­low­ing in sec­ond and Cather­ine Da­ley fin­ish­ing fourth. Dianne Wood­ward was sec­ond in the women’s 60 to 64 cat­e­gory.– Li­onel San­ders aced his Kona de­but, over­com­ing the heat is­sues that seemed to have plagued him in Texas and Mont-trem­blant to over­come an 11-minute deficit af­ter the swim and bike and run his way to 14th place.
