    Birmingham medical student Oliver Ziff, 21, has won the British Universities Triathlon Championships in Sheffield.

    Ziff, 21, from Leeds, retained the title he won as a freshman last year.

    He said: "I wasn't totally happy with my performance in the 1,500m swim, and I benefitted from the mistake of two swimmers who had broken away but then lost 10 seconds by going slightly off course.

    "I managed to tag on to the back of the leading group and benefit from their slipstream. The 40k bike ride went really well and I finished it in second place. I then ran with the leader for the first half of the 10k run and was still feeling strong and I pulled away over the second half.

    "My time of 2 hours 1 minute was by no means my fastest, but there is a wide variation between courses anyway. This event was non-drafting, meaning that slipstreaming was not allowed during the bike stage."

    Ziff will now focus on preparing for the London Triathlon at the start of August, which incorporates the trial for the World Under 23 Triathlon Championships in Budapest in September.
