Doughty continues winning streak

VIS Paratriathlete Kate Doughty continued her winning streak at the World Paratriathlon Event in Yokohama over the weekend.

Doughty overcame stomach cramps on the run to chalk up another impressive performance en-route to the sport’s debut at this year’s Paralympics in Rio

Doughty said her race was really about practicing and executing everything as efficiently as possible in the lead up to Rio.

“The swim was good, I love this course, the bike is technical but it plays to my strengths (so) it was a great bike,” said Doughty.

“I didn’t feel the best in the run; my stomach played up the whole time and coming in I wasn’t in the best way, but I was able to push through it.

“I’m just really happy; at the end of the day it comes down to that mental strength that gets that extra one
