(AP) Non Stanford of Britain captured the women's world triathlon title after winning the Grand Final race in London on Saturday.

Stanford claimed her second World Series victory of the season by winning in 2 hours, 1 minute, 32 seconds to finish ahead of compatriot Jodie Stimpson in the overall standings.

Gwen Jorgensen of the United States was leading overall by eight points from Germany's Anne Haug heading into the last of the eight races in the series, but both had a disappointing day.

Jorgensen had to retire after a crash on the bike and Haug had a poor swim, finishing 34th but just holding on for overall bronze.

Stanford was the under-23 champion last year and became the eighth athlete in 24 years of the world championship to clinch the title on home soil.
