On the racing front, four hotly contested races were on offer:

Olympic race

After 1500m of swimming, 40km on the bike and an epic 10km run, it was GB triathlete David Bishop who emerged victorious as he blitzed his competitors with an incredible time of 1:50:44. Bishop beat Chris Silver who finished in second place and David Hynes, who finished third.

Emerging out of the water and exiting T1 in first position, Bishop became the hot favourite to win the race. However, as the athletes returned into the Roald Dahl Plass following the challenging 40km bike leg, David Hynes had cut Bishop’s lead to just 18secs.
