These results follow a number of top-ten finishes by the British elites racing in Geneva on Friday (July 10), including fifth by Lucy Hall and Tom Bishop, and a ninth-place finish for Jodie Stimpson, who suffered a flat tyre on the bike. 

The paratriathletes fared even better, winning six medals including two golds, two silvers and two bronzes – a fantastic haul as they ramp up their preparations for paratriathlon’s Olympic debut at Rio 2016.
