Russian athletes pre race.

 

 

 

 

Javier Gomez warming up for the swim.

 

 

 

 

Alistair Brownlee looked happy and relaxed before the start.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the 100m swim would be over by now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Varga would push hard for a break on the bike early on with several other top athletes.

 

 

 

 

Gomez is a top all round triathlete and was a lead swimmer today.

Alistair also out in the first group.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The lead bike group was caught after leading for several laps.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the chase group caught up, the 3rd British athlete selected (Stuart Hayes) went to work at the front for his team.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alistair Brownlee first off and leaving nothing to chance.

First lap and the 3 medalists have separated themselves from all others.

 

 

 

 

7th for Russian Alexander Brukhankov, seen here trailing the two French triathletes.

 

 

 

Not to be in London, Bevan Docherty finishing in 12th.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Beijing Gold Medalist Jan Frodeno would have to settle for 6th today.
