Hundreds of amateur and professional competitors were cheered on by thousands of enthusiastic spectators; the return of the World Triathlon to Leeds for a third year was an undoubted success.

While there has been concern about the extent of the road closures, hosting the Triathlon once again showcased Leeds as an excellent home to world-class sporting action. Coming just days after a sell-out crowd at Elland Road was widely praised for the excellent atmosphere at the England game, and building on the continued success of the Tour de Yorkshire, the city is putting itself firmly on the sporting map.
