Prize Money: Georgia Taylor-Brown And Jess Learmonth The Top Two Earners In Super League Triathlon 2021

Super League Munich 2021

Just one point separated Georgia Taylor-Brown and Jess Learmonth in the Super League Triathlon 2021 Championship Series standings and the two dominated the list of athletes earning the most prize money taking home $276,000 between them.

The pair were well clear of the next highest earner, not only in the women’s field but also the men’s.

Taylor-Brown’s four second place finishes, securing the run discipline jersey, the Championship Series title and second pace in the SLT Teams standings saw her bag $140,000 for her work in September.

Learmonth may have missed out on the trophy at the last, but three wins, the bike jersey and being part of the title winning SLT Eagles contributed to earnings only $4,000 shy of her friend and teammate.

The SLT Teams concept ensured every athlete earned prize money in a bid to support those developing and competing but not at the very top end of the field. In the women’s field there were seven athletes who would have earned no prize money were it not for SLT Teams.

The discipline jerseys also contributed. Vittoria Lopes secured $35,000, despite being eliminated before the end of every race, by virtue of winning the swim jersey, which also helped her SLT Eagles to the title and added another $15,000 to her winnings.
