Our next installment of Mooloolaba Triathlon goodness is the Women's ITU World Cup for elite competitors. Last year's Noosa Triathlon third-placegetter, Kiwi Nicky Samuels won here. Popular Aussie Emma Moffatt was second, and 2010 Sydney World Championship stage winner, Chilean Barbara Riveros Diaz came third. Some pics:
