Spain’s Javier Gomez made it three Triathlon World Cup Series wins in a row in a thrilling sprint finish with his young compatriot Mario Mola with South Africa’s Murray making the podium for the first time as he finished third. British brothers Alastair and Jonathan Brownleee were surprisingly unable to hold the fast run pace and finished 4th and 5th.
The US Gwen Jorgensen showed that if she gets off the bike with or near the leaders she can simply outrun her opponents as she won the female title.
