Fulwood multi-sports athlete Rachel Jones travelled to Setubal in Portugal for the third in the 2015 Biathle World Tour series of events – and came back feeling on top of the world.

Having won in Dubai and Italy, Jones was determined to make it a hat trick of wins.

The competition was held in Setubal’s Parc de Albarquel bordering the estuary of the Sado River estuary in which the swimming element of the continuous format run/swim/run event was staged.

Jones completed the 1,500 metres run, 200 metres swim another 1,500 metres run in a time of 14 minutes 15.59 seconds to take another excellent victory.

She now heads the World Tour rankings and looks forward to the World Championships to be held in the Georgian seaside resort of Batumi in September.
