Dominika Jamnicky lands career best 4th place finish at Yucatan World Cup

Jamnicky bounces back after disappointing performance at WTS Edmonton, to earn a career-best finish in Mexico.

Dominika Jamnicky had the best race of her career so far with a fourth place finish at the inaugural Yucatan World Cup in Mexico over the weekend.

Jamnicky came out of the water just 19 seconds behind the leader, and overall winner Summer Cook of the USA. She stayed in the lead pack of nine on the bike with fellow Canadian Amelie Kretz as well. The group stayed together for the entire four-lap bike course and when they came into T2, it was clear those nine women would be the ones fighting for the podium. Jamnicky hung tight for an 18:06 run split and finished fourth just less than a minute behind Cook.

Kretz managed to stay in the top 10 as well with a ninth place finish, while Canadians Emy Legault and Elisabeth Boutin took 17th and 21st respectively.

Check out ITU’s video recap of the race featuring highlights from Jamnicky’s day, below:

On the men’s side, Matthew Sharpe managed a top-10 finish as well taking ninth. Taylor Forbes and Jeremy Briand took 14th and 15th respectively, John Rasmussen finished in 20th Brennen Smith in 35th and Michael Lori finished in 37th.
