After a brilliant runner-up finish a week ago at the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final, Kristian Blummenfelt (NOR) continued his hot streak with a pair of wins this weekend at the Super League Triathlon in Jersey.

The Eliminator event on day two of the Super League Triathlon in Jersey consisted of three short races (300 m swim, 5 km bike an 2 km run) which saw all but 15 of the men eliminated after the first race and the top 10 from that second race compete in the final short tri.

Staying near the front in all three stages in the wet conditions, Blummenfelt moved to the front about halfway through the bike of the final race and then blasted out of transition. While he had one quick look behind with a few hundred meters to go, no one was close enough to threaten Blummenfelt's lead. Jonathan Brownlee (GBR), who had stayed close to Blummenfelt at the beginning of the run, was able to hold on for second ahead of a fast-finishing Richard Murray (RSA). The order of finish in the Eliminator was the finishing order for the overall race, too.
