Dou­ble podium de­light for Ki­wis in Ed­mon­ton

An­drea Hewitt won sil­ver and Nicky Sa­muels bronze at the ITU World Triathlon Se­ries grand fi­nal in Ed­mon­ton on Sun­day. It is a con­sec­u­tive bronze for Wanaka-based Sa­muels and moves her to a ca­reer high fifth in the world. She was de­lighted with her per­for­mance. ‘‘I couldn’t re­ally have asked for much bet­ter, my run to come into its own on nine days of qual­ity train­ing, I amhappy with that. I was a bit con­cerned I was jet-lagged and was a bit sick com­ing into this so I amso stoked. The race was quite hard, ev­ery race is. It was a great day for it with so many spec­ta­tors out there and to share the podium with An­drea is spe­cial too.’’
