Jenna Wilson's and Jacques Marcoux's results at the 2003 ITU Duathlon World Championships (posted on August 30, 2003) 

Jenna Wilson and Jacques Marcoux competed at the 2003 ITU Duathlon World Championships in Affoltern Switzerland on August 30th.  As UofManitoba professor/observer Colleen Metge writes:
"The course was very difficult, as it was raining very hard on the bike course. Also, there was an immediate uphill run to the course (after surviving some very wet and slippery wood chips!?!), and a bike uphill that was as steep as I've seen. Also, for
flat-lander Manitobans, the down-hills were a different experience."
