Moss was third in her age group and fourth overall while Cooper took gold in her category and was third woman overall amongst a highly competitive field that included Nicola Spirig, Olympic gold medallist.
Other athletes racing from the Do3 squad were Amy Hinton, Steven Hession, Paul Nash and Andrew White.
Do3 head coach, Dave Knight, said: “St Moritz is known as the home of the triathlon as it draws the very best athletes to train in the very best conditions. The squad took part in one of the most competitive fields and I’m delighted at their results.
“We’ve more to come in Glasgow and I wish everyone racing the best of luck in another tough field. This has been a standout year for Do3 and it’s down to the commitment and resilience each person has shown.”
