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.’’
