Recap
Great Britain’s Lucy Hall won her first-ever ITU World Cup race on an amazing sprint finish against her training partner Jessica Learmonth. Hall won the sprint race in 59:34, with Learmonth in second at 59:35. Japan’s Ai Ueda took the last spot on the winner’s podium with a time of 1:00:04.

“The plan was to use Cape Town as part of our training and have a bit of fun! We wanted to test some training tactics as well and it did work, but triathlon is very unpredictable and there are so many variables … so when it all works out it is just wonderful!” said Hall.

On her first World Cup win she added: “It is amazing. I’m turning 25 next week and I always said that if I can get a World Cup podium before I am 25 then I will be happy.”
