Wales triathlete Helen Jenkins reveals that she will use her next ITU world series event in Hamburg to sharpen up ahead of the Commonwealth Games.

Wales's Helen Jenkins has admitted that she is focusing solely on the Commonwealth Games rather than pursuing the world triathlon crown.

The 30-year-old won a silver medal in her last ITU series event in Chicago and currently sits in second place in the overall standings.

However, Jenkins has revealed that she will be using the next race in Hamburg to find her range for the Games in Glasgow at the end of the month.

She told Radio Wales Sport: "The big focus of mine is the Commonwealths. The next race is in Hamburg, 10 days out from Commonwealth Games so I'm not going to be hitting that in top form.

"It's part of my preparation, it's almost like a sharpening for Glasgow."

Jenkins has won the world triathlon crown twice in her career in 2008 and 2011.
