The race included a 500-m swim, 20-km bike and 5-km run.

“The conditions played to my favour and it was a bonus to execute a race that I’m really proud of,” Jamnicky said after the race. “I fought all the way to the finish to try to get onto that top step of the podium.”

Jamnicky caught American Renee Tomlin on teh run, but the American managed to hang on for a two-second win, finishing in 59:02. American Kaitlin Donner took third in 59:08.
