Strong British contingent revealed for Eton Dorney
Commonwealth Games champions Joe Townsend and Jade Jones-Hall will aim to continue their recent golden streak when the ITU Paratriathlon World Cup reaches home soil at Eton Dorney.
The duo claimed the respective men’s and women’s titles on the Gold Coast as paratriathlon made its Commonwealth Games debut.
And they will be back in action a little closer to home as part of a 16-strong British contingent for the event on Monday May 28.

Paralympic, world and European champion Andy Lewis will also race, competing in a strong PTS2 field that includes America’s Allan Armstrong, who came second behind the 35-year-old in their last encounter at the 2017 Sarasota ITU Paratriathlon World Cup.
Lewis said: “I’m excited to welcome some of the world’s best paratriathletes to a home World Cup event.”
This month’s gathering represents the fourth of eight rounds in this season’s ITU Paratriathlon World Cup with Dave Ellis another aiming to shine after winning the ITU world visually impaired title in Rotterdam last year.
Fellow visually impaired athlete, and Paralympic silver medallist Alison Patrick, will also compete while Hannah Moore makes her first ITU start after being selected during the 2017 Talent Identification Event.
