Snowsill runs away with women’s triathlon

Emma Snowsill of Australia has won the Olympic women’s triathlon, pulling away toward the beginning of the 10-kilometer run to finish over a minute ahead of the field.

Vanessa Fernandes of Portugal won the silver, and Emma Moffatt of Australia came across the finish line about 20 seconds later for the bronze.

Four years ago, Australia’s Loretta Harrop ran alone for over a half-hour before being passed only a few seconds away from the finish by Kate Allen. This year, Snowsill had time to grab a flag, pull up and wave for a bit before strolling across.

Snowsill, ranked No. 3 in the world, was the world champion in 2003, 2005 and 2006. She’s a nine-time World Cup winner.
