Georgia Taylor-Brown takes second place in Lievin at World Triathlon Indoor Cup

British triathlete Georgia Taylor-Brown claimed the silver medal at the indoor World Cup, narrowly missing out on gold in an exciting sprint finish. The race took place in Lievin, France and saw Taylor-Brown, the reigning outdoor world champion, battle it out with Germany’s Laura Lindemann and American Gwen Jorgensen.

All three women crossed the finish line in an official time of 10 minutes and 19 seconds after completing a 150m swim, 3km bike, and 1km run. The indoor event features a unique course with a track surrounding a 25m pool, where athletes cycle on the outer lanes before running on the inner lanes.

Despite feeling slightly underprepared for the run, Taylor-Brown expressed her happiness with the result, acknowledging the challenging conditions in the indoor arena. Her British teammate Jessica Fullager finished 12th in the women’s final, while Vicky Holland, a 2016 Olympic bronze medallist, was disqualified earlier in the competition for not serving a penalty.

In the men’s race, Norway’s Vetle Bergsvik Thorn emerged as the winner, with Great Britain’s Sam Dickson finishing seventh overall.
