More than 1,600 professional and amateur athletes from more than 23 countries participated in the fourth annual Beijing International Triathlon, on Sunday, Sept. 20. It was Americans Eric Lagerstrom and Lauren Goss who each earned the victories in their first attempt at this race.

“I never thought I would ever be racing with ‘the greats’ Greg Bennett and Matt Reed,” said 2015 Beijing International Triathlon Winner Eric Lagerstrom. “I grew up seeing these legends, Greg and Matt, on the covers of Triathlete M.agazine and to be racing with them and then sharing the podium here in Beijing is unbelievable.”

“The bike course was technical and the run course too with 600-plus stairs,” said 2015 Beijing International Triathlon Winner Lauren Goss. “This was the most beautiful course I have ever raced and the biggest win of my career.”
