In this special edition we preview the 2015 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final Chicago, and also look back on some highlights of the season so far, brought to you by Columbia Threadneedle.
We have to start with Gwen Jorgensen. As the defending ITU World Champion, Gwen has already proven her quality – but in 2015 she has taken that to a new level. Six World Triathlon Series starts and six wins mean that she has now won her last eleven World Triathlon Series events. Winning the 2016 Olympic Test Event in Rio de Janeiro too, that’s twelve consecutive victories since her third place finish in Cape Town last year. Brought up in Saint Paul, Minnesota, the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final Chicago represents almost a ‘home’ race for Gwen to complete her 2015 season.
