Just six months after retiring from professional cycling, Britain’s Olympic silver medallist Emma Pooley claimed gold at long-distance triathlon Challenge Philippines last weekend despite some hot and challenging conditions.
In the men’s race, Italy’s Domenico Passuello – also a former pro cyclist turned triathlete – took the title with a time of 4:04:22, finishing around 5mins ahead of Danish athlete Rasmus Petraeus after catching him on the bike. Third place was taken by Mitch Robbins (AUS).
