Lisa Norden and Emma Moffatt head to head in Gold Coast for the title.

When Lisa Norden and Emma Moffatt went head to head at the Series Grand Final on Australia’s Gold Coast, only one would emerge as the new world champion.

Following a season of up and downs the final result rested on the last race and ultimately the last discipline with Norden needing to beat Moffatt by two places to clinch the world title.

As they headed out of transition together it was clear that neither athlete would give an inch and sure enough the home crowds were treated to a spectacle as their local hero Moffatt battled the charging Norden for the full extent of the ten kilometre run to the finish.
