She chased down the early leaders Sif Bendix Madsen of Denmark and Switzerland’s Anja Weber in the Argentine capital’s Green Park to claim the victory.

The 17-year-old from Durban began the race with a very weak swimming segment, leaving the water in seventh position and 27 seconds behind the leaders.
