2006 World Champ shows he’s still a formidable force by winning ITU race in Korea over the weekend.

Tim Don showed he’s gunning for a fourth Olympic Games appearance by winning the Seoul ITU Triathlon Asian Cup over the weekend.

Renowned battler Don, 33, the 2006 world champion, showed his impressive turn of speed to outrun the competition and take the title by 35 seconds from Ukrainian Danylo Sapunov. He finished in 1:51:57.

Hideko Kikuchi of Japan took the women’s title, outrunning New Zealand’s Kate McIlroy to finish in 2:07:46.

The victory is Don’s second at an ITU Continental Cup this season following a win at the Port Elizabeth ITU Triathlon African Cup in March.

Don chose to race in Seoul following the postponement of the World Championship Series race in Yokohama Japan, which will now take place on Monday September 19.

Don said: “It’s always fantastic to achieve a win on the ITU circuit.”
