The ETU Winter Triathlon European Championships kicked off on Saturday in Gaishorn am See, Austria.

In the elite womens race the question was if Sigrid Mutscheller would able to defend her title again and remain unbeaten.  Carina Wasle was the best on the run from the very beginning as nobody was able to keep pace with her. She increased her lead lap by lap. Her lead was 1 minute, 30 seconds after the first discipline. Yulia Surikova from Russia came second with Mutscheller on her heels.  The large audience expected Mutscheller to catch Wasle during the mountain bike leg but instead Wasle increased her lead by another 30 seconds and started the cross-country ski leg with an impressive two minute lead. Mutscheller came second, Surikova third and Anke Kullman from Germany fourth. After two laps of the eight lap cross-country ski course, it was more and more certain that Mutscheller would secure the win and halfway through the last leg she was already in the lead. The other German, Kullman passed Surikova and climbed onto the podium. Wasle finished second.

A big elite mens field started at 14:00 with several former champions in the field. Florian Holzinger tried to replicate what Wasle did in the womens race. He increased his lead on the run and began the bike leg with a lead of 40 seconds over the local favorite Heinz Planizer. The former champions included Daniel Antonioli from Italy, Andreas Svanebo from Sweden and Sigi Bauer from Austria but all were down by 90 seconds after the run. On the mountain bike section, the first and second athletes remained in the lead, but the chase group gained some ground them. Two Czech athletes, Tomas Dolezal and Pavel Jindra, joined this group with an outstanding bike performance. Holzinger hit the cross-country ski course followed by Planitzer from the same distance as after the run. Their lead was very impressive, but not for Svanebo, who performed one of the best ski segments and caught all his rivals one by one, lap by lap and was able to defend his European title. Holzinger was very happy with the second place and the locals were very elated for Planitzer finishing third.

Los Campeonatos de Europa de Triatln empezaron el sbado en Gaishorn am See, Austria.

En la carrera de la lite femenina la pregunta era si Sigrid Mutscheller sera capaz de defender su ttulo otra vez y permanecer imbatida. Carina Wasle fue la mejor corriendo desde el inicio y nadie fue capaz de seguirla. Ella aumentaba su ventaja vuelta tras vuelta. Su ventaja era de 1 minuto, 30 segundos al finalizar la primera disciplina. Yulia Surikova de Rusia lleg segunda con Mutscheller pegada a sus talones. El numeroso pblico esperaba que Mutscheller atrapase a Wasle durante el segmento de la bicicleta de montaa a pesar de que Wasle incrementase su ventaja en otros 30 segundos e iniciase el segmento de esqu campo a travs con una ventaja impresionante de dos minutos. Mutscheller lleg segunda, Surikova tercera y Anke Kullman de Alemania cuarta. Despus de dos de las ocho vueltas del circuito de esqu campo a travs, era cada vez ms cierto que Mutscheller se asegurara la victoria y a la mitad del ltimo segmento ella ya estaba en cabeza. La otra alemana, Kullman super a Surikova y se subi al podium. Wasle finaliz segunda.

Florian Holzinger trat de reproducir los que Wasle haba hecho en la carrera femenina. l increment su ventaja en la carrera a pie y empez el segmento de la bicicleta con una ventaja de 40 segundos sobre el favorito local Heinz Planizer. Los anteriores campeones de otras ediciones, entre los que estaban Daniel Antonioli de Italia, Andreas Svanebo de Suecia y Sigi Bauer de Austria estaban por detrs a 90 segundos, tras la carrera a pi. En el segmento de la bicicleta, los dos primeros clasificados permanecieron en cabeza, pero el grupo perseguidor recorto distancias. Dos atletas checos, Tomas Dolezal y Pavel Jindra, se unieron a este grupo con una excepcional actuacin en la bicicleta. Holzinger encabez el circuito campo a travs seguido de Planitzer a la misma distancia que despus de la carrera. Tena una ventaja muy importante, pero no tanto para Svanebo, que realiz uno de los mejores segmentos de esqu y cogi a todos sus rivales uno por uno, vuelta tras vuelta y fue capaz de defender su ttulo europeo. Holzinger estaba muy feliz con su segundo puesto y el pblico local estaba eufrico por el tercer puesto de Planitzer.
