The favorite in this event was Portugal’s Vanessa Fernandes, the 2007 World Champion and world ranked #1 in 2006-07. In May of 2008 Fernandes had won her record 20th World Cup race. She was expected to be challenged by the woman she displaced at the top of the rankings, Emma Snowsill of Australia, the 2003, 2005, and 2006 World Champion. Snowsill and Fernandes came out of the water close together, and rode together in the same pack during the cycling. Starting the run they were together in a fairly large group, with little to choose, but Snowsill stomped on the field in the 10 km run. She covered the course in 33:17, more than a minute ahead of Fernandes, who ran 34:21, as Snowsill won the gold medal with about a 67-second margin of victory. Fernandes was also well ahead of Snowsill’s teammate, Emma Moffatt, who won the bronze medal.
