morrison's silver lining

Aileen Morrison has further cemented her reputation as one of triathlon's top international competitors with a second-place finish at the Ishigaki ITU World Cup in Japan yesterday.

"I'm pleased with silver," said the Derry native (pictured above). "Obviously I'm a little disappointed I couldn't have a chance at the gold but (winner) Kathy (Tremblay) had an amazing race and she ran really well, so fair play to her."

Also racing was Olympic hopeful Gavin Noble, who did his qualification chances no harm with a 24th-place finish.
