it was a day of firsts at the Mooloolaba ITU Triathlon World Cup today as home-country hero Ashleigh Gentle, who has won a record six times in Noosa but never taken the win in Mooloolaba, finally found the top of the podium at the mainstay event on the Sunshine Coast, while Canadian Tyler Mislawchuk took his first world cup title.

Gentle runs to the win

Former Australian surf competitor Emma Jeffcoat led out of the water and was joined by a group that included fellow Aussies Kelly-Ann Perkins and Natalie Van Coevorden, along with American Tamara Gorman. The foursome opened up a gap of 21-seconds on the chasers through the first lap of the bike. By the end of the second lap, though,  the two lead groups were together, setting up a 5 km run for the win, which Gentle handled with ease despite a tough race schedule that had her racing Super League in Singapore, WTS in Abu Dhabi and then back home for the race in Mooloolaba. American Renee Tomlin took second, six-seconds behind Gentle, while Italy's Angelica Olmo rounded out the podium.

“It was really tough," Gentle said after the race. "I knew it was going to be a big ask to back up after Abu Dhabi last weekend. I am really happy and a little bit surprised, to be honest. Racing at home here in Queensland was really special to me today and I am really grateful for the support I get from my fellow Queenslanders so I really wanted to come back and race on home soil. Seeing some familiar faces here in Queensland today reminded me of why I started triathlon. I will do a training camp now in Perisher, Australia, before going over to America and then race the next World Triathlon Series race in Bermuda."

Mislawchuk's first world cup victory

The Canadian was billed as the pre-race favorite heading into the race in Mooloolaba and lived up to that billing with an impressive run to get himself clear for the win. After a solid swim and a fast transition, Mislawchuk led the large field of 67 men out onto the bike course for the technical, four-lap bike course. A large group of 30 stayed together through the 20 km ride, setting up a fast run for the title.

Once again Mislawchuk was at the front as he started the run alongside Australian Olympian Ryan Bailie and New Zealand's Sam Ward, and made his move early. He held on for a convincing five-second win over Australian Brandon Copeland and Germany's Valentin Wernz.
