Edmonton triathlete finishes fifth at worlds

Edmonton’s Paula Findlay finished fifth yesterday in the elite women’s event at the world triathlon championship.

Edmonton’s Paula Findlay finished fifth yesterday in the elite women’s event at the world triathlon championship.

Findlay, 21, finished the 1,500-metre swim, 40-kilometre bike circuit and 10-kilometre run in one hour 51 minutes 30 seconds. Findlay entered the race as one of the favourites after winning consecutive World Championship Series titles in her last two races.

“I worked so much harder today for fifth than I did in my two wins,” said Findlay. “This is a bitter-sweet finish.

“I wanted the podium so bad today, but if someone told me last year I would be fifth at the Grand Final, I would never have believed them.”
