Norden and Gomez Noya win the US Open Triathlon

Potts and Haskins win Series titles.

Sweden’s Lisa Norden and Spain’s Javier Gomez Noya procured wins at the Toyota U.S. Open Triathlon in Dallas and both took home $15 000 for their efforts.

Norden trailed out of the water but crushed the 40-kilometre ride in 1:00:32 to grab the lead. She then ran 36:17 to stay in front to win for the fourth consecutive year in a time of 1:59:03. American Sarah Haskins finished second (2:01:54) and Australia’s Annabel Luxford third (2:02:45).

Gomez used the fastest 10-kilometre run of the day (31:13) to literally run away with the overall victory (1:47:55)

American Greg Bennett put up consistent splits across the board to get second (1:48:40), and fellow American Cameron Dye rode an incredible 55:36 to snatch third in 1:49:52.

Racing at the Ironman World Championships in less than one week, American Andy Potts posted the fastest swim (17:50) and finished fourth overall in 1:50:08. Potts had good reason to be in Dallas for the event. As one of the series leaders, he needed to stay in front of Cameron Dye, and Greg Bennett to ensure himself a healthy payday. By finishing fourth, he finished one point ahead of Dye in the standings and 2.5 points ahead of Bennett. As a result, he won $62 250 for the series win along with a Toyota vehicle. Fellow American Sarah Haskins won the women’s series crown by an easy 15.5-point margin.
