Doughty returns in style
Tuesday, 12 March 2019
Super-mum Kate Doughty made a spectacular start to her 2019 season, winning the PTS5 class at the ITU Paratriathlon World Cup in Devonport last weekend.
Rio Paralympian Doughty won the race in convincing fashion from Hungary's Petra Levay and Australia's Molly Wallace.
Doughty said she felt she had the race under her control across the three legs and was happy with how her comeback to the sport was coming along.
"I always like racing in Devonport and the conditions were perfect for the swim, bike and run," Doughty said.
"I was making sure I was remaining calm and it took really good rhythm, I am not back at full training capacity and it was great to win here.
