Roberts roars back in UK after lengthy injury break
- Updated: June 9, 2014
Two-time Olympian Kate Roberts has bounced back from a lengthy foot injury and ended second in this weekend’s Blenheim Palace triathlon in the United Kingdom, writes Mark Etheridge.
Winner was Great Britain’s Emma Pallant in 66:49 while Roberts’ splits were 9:42 for the swim, 32:53 for the bike ride and 20:53 for the run.
Roberts told Road to Rio 2016: “It was a great feeling after a disappointing showing at the World Triathlon Series in London the previous week. Unfortunately my wheel spoke broke in London and I cycled 20km with my brakes rubbingÔÇª it was a tough day out at the office.
“I was really happy with the result given that I have been injured and out of running for almost three months.
“I obviously have a lot of work to get back to my best but this result was a step in the right direction and proved to me that I am still able to race at a high level. I was rather devastated after London WTS.”
