ITU Triathlon World Cup: Tamara Gorman Wins Silver in Chengdu

Tamara Gorman


CHENGDU, China: TAMARA Gorman reached for the second time the ITU Triathlon World Cup podium by winning silver in Chengdu, China a few hours ago.


“It worked out perfectly coming in today,” Gorman claimed. “I was pretty confident with a really relaxed day yesterday, and I was happy to go out there and go hard the whole time.”


On the other hand, U.S.’s Morgan Pearson was able to classify himself in sixth position in the men’s category and is now leading the American men triathletes with an impressive number of World Cup finishes.


Yesterday’s 400m swim, 10k bike, 2.5k run race, featured a semifinal format. It included a 750meter swim, 20kilometer bike, 5kilometer run on Saturday’s race and also, a super-sprint (400m swim, 10k bike, 2.5krun) A and B finals on Sunday.


After the first race, for the Sunday’s finals, it was only the top half of the two semifinal heats for women and three semifinal heats for the men who were able to advance to the main race.


After an impressive season in 2017, yesterday’s podium was Gorman’s first great achievement for the season. Some among the biggest names competing in the women’s A final was Sophie Chase who was placed 11th in 32:36, and also Mary Alex England who took 25th position in 34:07.
