Foreign domination

The 10th Quarteira Triathlon, incorporating the second round of the sport’s European Cup competition, was dominated by French and German athletes at the weekend.

In the men’s event, Vincent Luis and Frederic Belaubre led home the Ukraine’s Danylo Sapunov, with Portugal’s Duarte Marques finishing a respectable fourth.

Among the ladies, Germany’s Anne Haug and Rebecca Robish proved too good for Poland’s Agnieska Jerzyk in third place while the Portuguese challenge resulted in no better than 10th.

While a total of 111 athletes from 27 countries took part in Saturday’s international competition, Sunday’s national equivalent proved equally popular with Pedro Laginha and Melanie Santos taking the honours respectively.
