GB’s Vicky Holland and Non Stanford secure spots for Rio

GB pro athletes Vicky Holland and Non Stanford are two steps closer to Rio thanks to their outstanding performances at yesterday’s WTS Grand Final in Chicago. British Tri’s strict Olympic nomination policy demanded podium finishes at both the Test Event in Rio and the Grand Final to ensure automatic qualification. By repeating their two-three finish from Rio, Stanford and Holland achieved what many believed to be a nigh-on impossible feat, and, bar injury, will be lining up on Copacabana Beach on 20 August 2016.
