Second World Cup victory within 8 days

Olympic gold medalist Nicola Spirig wins also the Triathlon World Cup in Cartagena, Colombia over the olympic distance.

After the swimming, the 32-year-old Swiss had a backlog of 35 seconds on the top. Thanks to a good cooperation in the bike group she could catch up to the first group after about eight kilometers. Although she had trouble finding the rhythm while running, Nicola Spirig could stay in the top group. 1.5 km from the finish she finally felt better and was even able to increase the pace. The result: a unthreatened victory. "To win two World Cups within just a few days is exceptional. I am very happy and completely satisfied with my performance", says Nicola Spirig.

The achievement is not only extraordinary, but also brings her a lot of important World Cup points for participating in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
