Wales' Non Stanford has been crowned world triathlon champion after winning the Grand Final in Hyde Park. The 24 year-old dominated the 10 kilometre run despite having to take a 15-second penalty.
Stanford was the world under-23 champion last year and becomes the second athlete after Alistair Brownlee to win the two titles in successive seasons.
The Welshwoman's achievement is all the more impressive given she broke her arm in a crash on the bike in Hamburg in July, but recovered to finish second in Stockholm just five weeks later.
