After coming out of the water in 5th place Alex quickly managed to get a good spot in front of the race. Susie Cheetham overtook the first place from Katja Konschak after 20km of cycling. At the start of the running part Alex was still 2min33 behind Cheetham.
“Halfway the running course I felt I could keep up a high pace. With only 5km left to go, I was just 17 seconds behind. The first place was really close now, but I had to stay focused. The last 2.5km I had a 50 seconds advantage on Cheetham which I almost doubled towards the finish. This victory gives me a big boost for Frankfurt and I’m really happy that our team performed so well!”
