Great Britain's Beth Potter was crowned world champion after victory at the World Triathlon Championship Series finals in Spain.

The 31-year-old was in the chasing pack in the swim and cycle before she pulled clear in the run, with team-mate Kate Waugh finishing second.

Potter's victory at the event in Pontevedra also secured her place at next year's Olympics Games in Paris.

"This has a been a dream season and I'm lost for words," Potter said.

"I wasn't going too good on the swim and bike so had to work harder. I felt better throughout the race, backed myself, believed in my training and was good on the run."
