After 3 days of racing, Gwen Jorgensen and Richard Murray are crowned Champions of the 2016 Island House Invitational Triathlon

Olympic Champion Gwen Jorgensen of the USA and Richard Murray of South Africa bested a world-class field to take top honors and the largest share of the $500,000 prize purse. This past weekend saw the second running of the Island House Invitational Triathlon. Close to 40 of the world’s best triathletes, including Olympians and Ironman World Champions, gathered in the Bahamas for the multi-day event. The race combined individual time trials, an enduro event and a sprint distance triathlon to determine a general classification (“GC”) winner across all three stages.
