Hi all

Main Link: My Smugmug photo gallery on the 2011 Mooloolaba ITU Women’s World Cup Triathlon, Sunshine Coast, Aust.

Our next dose of Mooloolaba triathlon goodness is the Women’s ITU World Cup event for elite competitors. Kiwi Nicky Samuels made a great breakaway on the bike and held on for the win. Aussie Emma Moffatt came second, closely followed by 2010 Sydney World Championship stage winner, Chilean, Barbara Riveros Diaz. Here are some pics:
