New Zealander Steve Farrell has won the 17th Cook Islands International Triathlon.

In windy conditions Farrell exited the water from the swim alongside fellow Kiwis Nathan Richmond and Jon Robinson, before Farrell took the lead on the bike leg.

Rarotongan local Roland Neururer moved up the field to claim second place ahead of Richmond.

Another local, Kelly Pick, was the first woman home, and finished several minutes clear of Rarotonga's Vanessa Palmer and Jo Carrel from New Zealand.
