The 2017 World Triathlon Series speeds up this weekend on Australia's Gold Coast. Some of the athletes who will toe the startline for the sprint race spoke to the media on Thursday.
Keeping his undefeated 2016 streak alive, Spaniard Mario Mola executed a brilliant finishing run to win the 2016 Jewel World Triathlon Gold Coast on Saturday.
Javier Gomez captured his second WTS win and sixth podium of the season at World Triathlon Stockholm. The win makes his drive to become the first athlete to win five ITU World Championship titles very much alive with just two races in the season left.
The always impressive Javier Gomez is the man to beat in Stockholm, as are compatriots Mario Mola and Fernando Alarza, the three of whom top the Columbia Threadneedle Rankings.
