Summary

Australia’s Loretta Harrop and America’s Sheila Taormina led the swim leg in 18:37, with Harrop exiting the water with a slight lead. Harrop was also an excellent cyclist and finished second on the bike, trailing another USA athlete, [Susan Williams]. Harrop had led the race at every checkpoint starting the run, but that was her weakest discipline. Austria’s Kate Allen was a weak swimmer and finished the swim over two minutes behind Harrop, 44th of the 50 starters. Allen lost almost another minute to Harrop on the bike, and started the run in 28th place, 2:48 back. But Kate Allen was by far the best runner in the event. She won that leg by over a minute over Italy’s Nadia Cortassa, and picked up 2:59 on Harrop, catching her in the last kilometer, and pulling away to win by seven seconds.
