Triathlon and Duathlon in St. Moritz: Last form test for the European Championships
Successful weekend for Olympic triathlon champion Nicola Spirig in St. Moritz:On Saturday 177 children and young people took part in the Kids Cup by Nicola Spirig - more than ever before. Nicola was there herself, cheered on the participants, handed out autographs and held award ceremonies.
On Sunday Spirig started in the Sprint Duathlon, which she won with a comfortable advantage over Melanie Maurer, European Championship silver medal winner of the 2018 duathlon middle distance. Afterwards a triathlon followed for Spirig. Celine Schärer took over the swimming and sent Spirig to the bike and running course. "I walked three times the six kilometers through the Stazerwald. The track was quite hilly and a challenge. But in the end it was the best preparation for the European Championship," said Nicola Spirig.
The triathlon silver medallist from Rio 2016 will travel to the European Championships in Glasgow on Tuesday. The single race of the European Championship will take place on Thursday, the team race on Saturday.
