She dared, attacked, was caught by the group, and gave it another try. In the end, it saw Hungary’s Zsanett Bragmayer claim the victory at the finals of the Europe Triathlon Cup in Tiszaujvaros. Second place went to Germany’s Selina Klamt and Swiss’ Anja Weber completed the podium.

Swimming 9:20 minutes, Bragmayer was first out of the water and onto the bike. She didn’t feel like waiting for the rest of the field, and decided to try and stay ahead on her own as long as she could. With a group of ten athletes taking shape behind her, it was tough to keep them off. About halfway through the bike part, they eventually caught up with her.

The group of eleven athletes – containing all eventual podium finishers – had created a one-minute gap towards the rest of the field once they were back in T2. On the run, Bragmayer took off on her own again. She didn’t wait until the final lap or stretch. From the very first moment that she hit the run course, she attacked.

This time, nobody was able to get back to Bragmayer. After a strong run Bragmayer broke the tape, staying clear of Klamt (+0:19) and Weber (+0:34), who took second and third respectively.
