Victory at the Swiss Duathlon Championships
In difficult and wet conditions, Spirig was able to edge Duathlon world championship runner-up Melanie Maurer in a tight and exciting race. The strong cyclist had challenged the 2012 Olympic champion deep into the race, but ultimately succumbed to Spirig’s superior running performance.
"I am happy with the way things went today”, said the six-time European triathlon champion in a post-race statement. "The weeks since my crash haven’t been easy and I had to make adjustments in my training. But today's performance makes me feel good about where I am at right now.”
Nicola Spirig’s next race will be the Taegi Tri in Wettingen (Switzeland) on September 6th.
