9:50 am on 28 April 2014

Aucklander Ryan Sissons has finished 10th at the latest World Triathlon Series event in South Africa.

The series was racing for the first time in Africa which meant a first visit back to the continent for Sissons in 14 years since his family moved to New Zealand from Zimbabwe.

It was the first time in 8 years that Sissons had seen his grandparents as they made the trip to Cape Town to watch the race and catch up with their New Zealand grandson.

Sissons has an overall world ranking of 6 after the opening 2 events.
