Ainhoa Murua finished ninth last Sunday in the Dextro Energy-Triathlon World Championships in Hamburg, Germany. This is Ainhoa’s best placing in the World Championship Series, on the day of her 32nd birthday.

The winner of the event was Swedish athlete Lisa Norden, who beat in the final sprint Emma Moffatt from Australia, new leader of the overall standings with three more races to go (London, Kitzbühel and the Grand Final in Budapest). Ainhoa, who was fourth at the European Championships in Athlone (Ireland) two weeks ago, equals the result she achieved at the beginning of June in the World Championships race of Madrid.

The athlete from Zarautz that I coach at USP Araba Sport Clinic places herself 15th in the World Championships overall ranking and aspires to finish in the competition’s Top-10 in mid-September.
