Brownlee and Norden ITU World Champs

Jonathan Brownlee and Lisa Norden already were Olympic medalists. Now they're also ITU World Champions. It's been a good 2012, we'd say.

After a dramatic sprint, Brownlee finished second to Spaniard Javier Gomez last weekend at the 2012 ITU World Triathlon Series Grand Final in Auckland. That result clinched Brownlee’s 2012 ITU World Championship. Throughout the season, Brownlee of Great Britain relied on Zipp 101 and Firecrest wheels as well as Zipp Service Course SL bars and stem. Brother Alistair, a fellow Zipp-sponsored athlete, won the ITU title in 2011.

Sweden’s Norden finished fourth in Auckland to claim the women’s 2012 ITU World Championship. She was a top performer in 2012, winning a silver medal in London in a photo finish and claiming two ITU series wins.

Congrats to both!
