Increasing her 2018 World Triathlon Series gold medal tally to three, Great Britain’s Vicky Holland won her third WTS race of the season after claiming victory at the 2018 ITU World Triathlon Montreal. Winning her second Olympic-distance race of the year, the Brit advanced 805 points in the overall Series rankings after the Penultimate event to put her in a strong contention position for the World Championship Crown at the Gold Coast Grand Final next month. Starting off on the wrong foot with a late start off the pontoon, the Brit clawed herself back in the game by catching up to the leaders on the bike, then breaking away on the run to eventually win the race.

Finishing second was USA’s Katie Zaferes. With her silver-medal finish, Zaferes remains the overall Series leader, however, the win from Holland tightly closed the gap between the two women in the running for the World Championship. The two will enter the Grand Final in Gold Coast, Australia only separated by 34 points, meaning that the World Crown will go to whoever finishes ahead of the other.
