With a total of $1 million up for grabs, and $200,000 going to both the male and female winners, the fourth annual Hy-Vee ITU Triathlon Elite Cup attracted a stacked start list including three Olympic gold medallists, four former world champions and the current number one ranked male and female triathletes in the world.

Emma Snowsill won the women's event & the big pay cheque! She came from over a minute down at T2, and ran 34.05 !

6. Are you all teamed up for the weekend? Got your team theme sorted? Previous years have resulted in some very original outfits and/or colour schemes !! Not yet teamed up? Flick an email with your contact number. I'll include in Wednesday's e news and we'll see if we can do a bit of team matching.
