Her 2019 ITU World Triathlon Series unbeaten streak was finally broken in Leeds this weekend, but that has hardly dented Katie Zaferes' hold on the top spot in the sport's prize money rankings. Her US$81,000 in prize money thanks to her three WTS victories and the Super League title from earlier this year put her ahead of Ironman stars Lucy Charles-Barclay and Daniela Ryf, with 70.3 specialist Holly Lawrence sitting in fourth and last weekend's Ironman Asia-Pacific champ Teresa Adam rounding out the top five.

Javier Gomez continues his all-around excellence, having moved his focus from distance racing earlier this year to nailing down his Olympic qualification for next year. A pair of WTS podiums (second in Bermuda and third in Leeds) along with the ITU Long Distance World Championships title in Pontevedra have helped put him atop the standings ahead of The Championship winner Sebastian Kienle. Super League champ Vincent Luis sits in third with Henri Schoeman in fourth. Last weekend's winner of the Ironman Asia-Pacific Championship, Braden Currie, rounds out the top five.
