Emma Moffatt wins, Emma Jackson and Emma Snowsill round of the podium in Hamburg ITU World Championship Triathlon Series
It was an Emma of a day in Hamburg today as Australia's triathlon trio Emma Moffatt, Emma Jackson and Emma Snowsill celebrated a triumphant and history-making ITU Dextro Energy Triathlon World Championship round in Hamburg. In what was arguably the first time in triathlon and maybe even world sporting history that three girls with the same christian name and from the same country shared the podium in a major World Championship round in any sport.
The Australian Team for this Weekend’s Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship round in Hamburg
In the lead up to this weekend's ITU Dextro Energy Triathlon World Championship round in Hamburg, Australia's National Head Coach Shaun Stephens, runs the microscope over the Australian team's preparations as they continue their march towards the all-important London round on August 6 and 7. The majority of the Australian athletes are in Aix Le Bain in France while the VIS group is in northern Spain under coach Jonno Hall, and Olympic champion Emma Snowsill continues her preparations in Germany.
It's not often they enter a Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Series race and don't make the podium but Beijing 2008 gold medallist Emma Snowsill and reigning ITU World Champion Emma Moffatt failed to reach it at home in Sydney. Snowsill had a rough swim leg and was out of contention from the start, while Moffatt faded to finish 13th. It's the first time both are contesting the Madrid leg of the Dextro Energy Triathlon Series race, but if they are at their best, will be hard to beat. Also this weekend sees rising star Brendan Sexton race his second world championship race. With a win at Monterrey and a 4th in Sydney it will be great to see what he can do this weekend.
