Belgium’s Emmanuel Lejeune and Iceland's Edda Hannesdottir took the elite titles at the ITU Aquathlon World Championships.

In the men's race Australian Nathan Breen led the way out of the water, but was passed shortly after the 1 km mark by Lejeune, who held the lead to the line.

Great Britain's Chloe Pollard led the women out of the water, but it was Hannesdottir who dominated the run and held on to win by almost a minute. A month ago Hannesdottir got a concussion during a race, so the Iceland native was emotional at the finish line as she captured the world title.
