Welcome to London's Hyde Park the climax of the 2013 World

:00:22.:00:31.

Triathlon Series. After seven races across four continents, the battle

:00:31.:00:35.

to become this year's world champion has come down to the wire and still

:00:35.:00:41.

two Brits in with the chance to take the title, Non Stanford and Jodie

:00:41.:00:46.

Stimpson. Here is how things stand ahead of this year's Grand Final.

:00:46.:00:51.

Assistant podium performances means there is just 13 points dividing the

:00:51.:00:53.

top three women. It is really winner takes all.

:00:53.:01:03.

Whoever crosses the line first becomes a world champion. It is the

:01:03.:01:09.

top four results of the season that count towards these rankings and

:01:09.:01:14.

Jodie Stimpson's was weakened in Stockholm. She needs to win in

:01:14.:01:19.

London and hope the top three women finished third or lower.

:01:19.:01:25.

Very close and the Brits have a lot of support in the crowd. Let us hear

:01:25.:01:42.

from the women. I glad to be back in London in 2011. -- I am glad to be

:01:42.:01:50.

back in London in 2011, some humbling experiences, and I changed

:01:50.:01:56.

my career completely again, switched coaches, and it has been working out

:01:56.:02:01.

well. I am going up against two girls that will be tough to beat,

:02:01.:02:06.

excited to go out there, their tactics are the same, swim to your

:02:06.:02:11.

best, cycled to the best and run with everything you have. I am

:02:11.:02:17.

looking forward to finish the season with a medal would be nice, yeah,

:02:17.:02:25.

and I have fought for so long, and it is the final and I want to make

:02:25.:02:29.

it and I will be glad when it is over. It is a flat course. She was a

:02:29.:02:41.

flat running girl. I think she is the favourite. Number one at the

:02:41.:02:46.

moment. I would put my money on her. I do not have a plan, just go out,

:02:46.:02:51.

give it everything and see what happens. People say I am an

:02:51.:03:05.

overnight success, but it has taken a lot, lots of training, surrounded

:03:05.:03:11.

by people, not an overnight success, just so happened that all that hard

:03:11.:03:16.

work came of this year. All the races this year came down to the

:03:16.:03:24.

run. I have to be prepared for that. When was doing well in Stockholm,

:03:24.:03:28.

but I ran faster than harm in Madrid. -- Gwen was doing well. Do

:03:28.:03:38.

not write me off yet. London is weird I want to perform, home soil.

:03:38.:03:44.

Racing at home, you cannot put it into words. You have to race as hard

:03:44.:03:53.

as you can. Lots of fast swimmers in the field, lots of cyclists, and the

:03:53.:04:00.

runners, Gwen Jorgensen, Non Stanford, Anne Haug, I will have to

:04:00.:04:06.

try and keep up. The girls are ready, which means it

:04:06.:04:11.

is race time, time to join the commentary team.

:04:11.:04:18.

Went -- welcome to us all day and for gay Grand Final. -- foggy.

:04:18.:04:32.

They will go on to the bait for seven laps after two laps of a swim,

:04:33.:04:37.

out of the park, down Constitution Hill, around the Victoria Memorial

:04:38.:04:46.

before heading back up the hill and back into the park, completing seven

:04:46.:04:55.

5.7 laps on two wheels. Then the run course, different from the Olympic

:04:55.:05:00.

course, three laps this time, 33.3 kilometre laps, bringing up the ten

:05:00.:05:08.

kilometre to round up the rays. The final of the World Triathlon Series

:05:08.:05:14.

2013, ready to dive into the Serpentine, and away they go. A 1.5

:05:14.:05:23.

kilometre swim, important to find some clear water to avoid contact

:05:23.:05:29.

with your competitors. It can be dangerous, some getting bumped, some

:05:29.:05:36.

left behind slightly. We expect the strongest swimmers to surge forward

:05:36.:05:42.

in the early stages. It is so important to get clear water in the

:05:42.:05:46.

early stages of the swim, not least because the first buoy comes at 250

:05:46.:05:54.

metres, and you want to be out of that washing machine effect before

:05:54.:06:00.

you head that first one. I called 12.5 degrees, the water

:06:00.:06:03.

temperature, forcing athletes to wear wet suits. Already seeing

:06:03.:06:10.

Andrea Hewitt setting the pace, Non Stanford, and others making the

:06:10.:06:20.

break towards the middle. We will start to see and arrowhead form,

:06:20.:06:25.

with the helicopter shot, and some good crowds out on this soggy

:06:25.:06:29.

morning. The strongest swimmers now starting to dominate heading towards

:06:29.:06:35.

the first turned up by the Serpentine Bridge, which divides

:06:35.:06:41.

this lake in two. We could see the likes of Pamela Oliveira from

:06:41.:06:45.

Brazil, a frequent first place an issue in the swimming. Other than

:06:45.:06:51.

Pamela, not many standout swimmers. We know that Lucy had some leads,

:06:51.:06:58.

but to date, we have the likes of Alice Betto, Aileen Reid from

:06:58.:07:03.

Ireland, the kind of swimmers we can Alice Betto, Aileen Reid from

:07:03.:07:09.

see up there with Pamela Oliveira. Looks like number 14, Sarah Groff,

:07:09.:07:14.

leading, the American, sometimes laid down on the run, in enjoying

:07:14.:07:19.

these flat conditions, the flattest Waterbury have had to swim in all

:07:19.:07:25.

season. Things can get choppy out in the ocean. Barely any wind to date.

:07:25.:07:33.

Sarah Groff from the United States of America is doing very well. Very

:07:33.:07:40.

comfortable in London. That fantastic race last year at the

:07:40.:07:44.

Olympics, and issuing forth, and a very strong swimmer. Slightly below

:07:44.:07:52.

par season for Sarah, but let us see what you can do in London, very

:07:52.:07:55.

comfortable on this course, knows it well. Non Stanford missed quite a

:07:55.:08:03.

lot of swimming time and training following her crash in Hamburg,

:08:03.:08:07.

resulting in a broken arm. Only able to swim with one arm, now back to

:08:07.:08:13.

full training, and being a little left behind, and a blistering start

:08:13.:08:18.

as Sarah Groff heads the first turned with clear water between her

:08:18.:08:22.

and the next best, then things turning interesting, you do not want

:08:22.:08:27.

to get next to that inflatable yellow buoy, you can get duck tough

:08:27.:08:33.

underneath it, sometimes there can be some argy-bargy going on, and

:08:33.:08:38.

heading south for a few metres before turning and swimming back

:08:38.:08:43.

towards the start. They will exit the water and dived back in for the

:08:43.:08:50.

second lap, good fast times so far. In the junior race, the under 23

:08:50.:08:55.

race on Friday, some very strong swimming, and looking for around

:08:55.:08:58.

about 18 minutes for this 1500 metres swim. At the halfway point,

:08:58.:09:05.

swimmers exiting around about nine or possibly just under nine minutes.

:09:05.:09:12.

Sarah Groff now has some company at the front, Aileen Reid starting to

:09:12.:09:16.

make a move. There are three in fact. One more short term to make.

:09:16.:09:24.

They will come out of the water, run left, back along the pontoon and

:09:24.:09:32.

dived back in for lap two. Feel a significant break now, about 20

:09:32.:09:38.

swimmers away, then a gap of about ten meters. At this early stage,

:09:38.:09:42.

that is normally pretty significant, and we can see that lead extend,

:09:42.:09:47.

important that there is a small group going out on the bike. Let us

:09:47.:09:53.

see if it contains Gwen Jorgensen, because if she wins today, she takes

:09:53.:09:59.

the overall title. Non Stanford wins, she will be world champion, as

:09:59.:10:04.

would Gwen Jorgensen. And if Anne Haug Germany wins, she will also be

:10:04.:10:09.

world champion. Emma Moffatt officially first. Sarah Groff

:10:09.:10:21.

demoted to third. Jodie Stimpson is out intent. Gwen Jorgensen just

:10:21.:10:31.

behind her. -- out in tenth. We are keeping an eye out on the union

:10:31.:10:36.

flags. Natalie Milne in 1900 back row, still no sign of Non Stanford.

:10:36.:10:47.

Now in 24th position. Work to do for those in that 22nd behind group. The

:10:47.:10:57.

hope to close some ground now. And now to pick up the bikes after that.

:10:57.:11:05.

Quite well spread. It is. Did not notice Anne Haug coming out there.

:11:05.:11:13.

Getting some shots of Emma Moffatt exiting the first lap, no surprise

:11:13.:11:18.

as she is a strong swimmer. And things starting to unfold at the end

:11:18.:11:25.

of the swim. The swimmers begin to think about the exit of the water

:11:25.:11:33.

and the job to transition where the bikes are part. This is the best

:11:33.:11:39.

swim I have seen from Emma Moffatt. A good result in Yokohama, second

:11:39.:11:45.

there, third in San Diego. She has been solid without being spectacular

:11:45.:11:49.

this season. I wonder if she has saved her best to last. Telegraph

:11:49.:11:56.

managing to hold onto second position. -- Sarah Groff managing to

:11:56.:12:03.

hold onto second position. You mentioned how great that swimming

:12:03.:12:05.

hold onto second position. You was fought Emma Moffatt. We know she

:12:05.:12:09.

is now being trained by Darren Smith in D squad, and few do not improve

:12:09.:12:18.

going into that. There is always room for improvement. Just join the

:12:18.:12:24.

work that Darren has been doing with her and certainly paying off. Number

:12:24.:12:32.

two, Anne Haug, she has a little bit of work to do. Certainly not looking

:12:32.:12:37.

as easy in the water as Emma Moffatt and Sarah Groff out in front, on her

:12:37.:12:44.

own in the middle of the pack, heading back towards the pontoon for

:12:44.:12:49.

the second time. All on her own, cutting quite a lonely figure, and

:12:49.:12:54.

that is the gap between Haug and up towards the leading group, and

:12:54.:12:59.

another pack there, a significant lead that Sarah Groff and Emma

:12:59.:13:06.

Moffatt have opened up over Anne Haug and she has to work hard,

:13:06.:13:12.

hopefully get some help from one or two of the other Germans as the head

:13:12.:13:17.

onto the bike. You would think the German team managers would have some

:13:17.:13:23.

race tactics out there, knowing that Annie is not the greatest swimmers,

:13:23.:13:27.

and with the chance to take the titles, possibly using the likes of

:13:27.:13:31.

Anja Knapp to wait behind butter and helper on the bike. But we have seen

:13:31.:13:34.

Anja Knapp to wait behind butter and Annie not needing much help stop --

:13:34.:13:39.

weight behind for hard and helper on the bike. Something not quite right

:13:39.:13:45.

for Anne Haug in this stage, third in Stockholm, and the race in

:13:45.:13:51.

Hamburg, which was a sprint distance race, she won that, scenes of

:13:51.:13:56.

celebration in the city of Hamburg that day as Haug came through, the

:13:56.:14:04.

Germans won the relay as well. Known as the quiet assassin. I read an

:14:04.:14:09.

interview and she is meticulous in everything she does on a day-to-day

:14:09.:14:12.

basis, training, nutrition, everything, but not quite getting

:14:12.:14:18.

the swim here today, not quite part of her plan. And the leader going

:14:18.:14:24.

round that third buoy now on the second lap of this 1500 metre

:14:24.:14:26.

course, the field stretching out, second lap of this 1500 metre

:14:26.:14:31.

and around about 12 athletes in that front pack, and if that pack pushes

:14:31.:14:38.

on, there could be a break, which is what you want. The swim almost done,

:14:38.:14:44.

led for most of the second half by Emma Moffatt, Sarah Groff keeping

:14:44.:14:49.

clear of her feet, in second position. The deficit all the way

:14:49.:14:56.

back to Anne Haug is significant. Non Stanford is not too far off the

:14:56.:15:01.

pace, but not with the leaders, and some jostling for position at the

:15:01.:15:13.

next turn. It is rare you see a triathlon so well spread. And

:15:13.:15:15.

anything can happen as they come towards the end of the swim, and

:15:15.:15:20.

then they go from the water to the two wheels, with the bikes parked up

:15:20.:15:25.

seven laps into the park. The roads are closed in central London to

:15:25.:15:30.

allow them to go off and write down Constitution Hill, down to the

:15:30.:15:36.

Victoria Memorial in front of Buckingham Palace, in front of bird

:15:36.:15:44.

cage walk. It is a repeat of the spectacular Olympic triathlon from

:15:44.:15:49.

August 2012. 18 minutes of fast swim for these women this morning, very

:15:49.:15:53.

fast indeed, the flat water helping them. Emma Moffat will be first to

:15:53.:15:57.

Exeter water. Sarah Groff, an them. Emma Moffat will be first to

:15:58.:16:02.

excellent swim, she led the first lap dash to except the water. Sarah

:16:02.:16:12.

Moffett -- Sarah Moffett, followed by Sarah Groff. A good swim from

:16:12.:16:14.

Jessica Harrison. No sign yet of Non Stanford. There

:16:14.:16:34.

she is. She has made up three seconds from the second lap. 20

:16:34.:16:40.

seconds at the end of lap one. Down to 17 seconds at the end of lap two.

:16:40.:16:44.

A chance for Non Stanford to get involved. Moffett -- my fat -- Sarah

:16:44.:16:54.

Moffett is in the leading group. Various -- there is Jorgensen,

:16:54.:17:00.

Moffett is in the leading group. playing into her hands, this race.

:17:00.:17:06.

Moffett is in the leading group. They have gone from the navy blue to

:17:06.:17:12.

the black, and Stimpson and Stamford will hope to be in the first group.

:17:12.:17:16.

They can't get back onto the bike until they have passed the mounting

:17:17.:17:22.

up line, and some of them having problems with the shoes attached to

:17:22.:17:26.

the pedals, and we might see a big group forming. Katie Hugh Whitson --

:17:26.:17:38.

Katie Hugh listen, swimming a bit behind, but not a bad swim for her

:17:38.:17:51.

on this final race. We'll now ride with the French athlete. Pallant Is

:17:51.:17:59.

going with her. Forcing the pace at the front. She has got some good

:17:59.:18:04.

company. Good cycling talent. We expect a big group to form. Somebody

:18:04.:18:08.

has missed the box with the red -- wet suit. And Non Stanford has not

:18:08.:18:16.

got her wet suit in the box which is an infringement and could result in

:18:16.:18:23.

a penalty. Yes, they know they have to get the wet suit in the box. It

:18:23.:18:25.

is the same for everyone. And how, to get the wet suit in the box. It

:18:25.:18:42.

disastrous swim. She will -- and how Haug hasn't got the wet suit on. Is

:18:42.:18:47.

the gap to significant for her to close? She is in the running to the

:18:47.:18:50.

title. With Stanford having missed the box with the wet suit and Haug

:18:50.:19:00.

so far behind, this plays into Jorgensen's hands. The roads are

:19:00.:19:04.

wet, the likes of Jessica Harrison in the front. She is an attacker and

:19:04.:19:10.

will ride hard into the corners. We can see Haug with not the fastest

:19:10.:19:19.

transition. So close to taking a title, and as yet Germany have not

:19:19.:19:24.

had a woman win the World Championship Series. Sarah Groff is

:19:24.:19:35.

alongside Moffatt, Moffatt there, and Harrison and Sarah Groff forming

:19:35.:19:39.

a leading group of three. We expect a group of maybe a dozen to form

:19:39.:19:46.

quite quickly. I don't see too many of these girls just sitting in,

:19:46.:19:51.

because Jorgensen it has been running a minute faster than every

:19:51.:19:55.

woman in every race, so every lap, they have to work as hard as they

:19:55.:19:58.

can to get rid of her, because if not, it comes down to the run and

:19:58.:20:04.

then it is a foregone conclusion. They are on one of the roads within

:20:04.:20:09.

the park. They Exeter at the grand entrance at Hyde Park Corner before

:20:09.:20:12.

heading under the Wellington art -- they except at the grand entrance.

:20:12.:20:20.

Then they go past the Victoria Memorial. There is the gap. The lead

:20:20.:20:24.

group has two minutes and seconds -- seven seconds off Annie Haug.

:20:24.:20:44.

Groth, Moffatt and Hewison. There. This is where the athletes have to

:20:45.:20:49.

take care that goes the roads are wet. When the rain is a bit damp it

:20:49.:20:56.

makes it more slippery. That was the London home of the Duke of

:20:56.:20:59.

makes it more slippery. That was the Wellington, Asbury house. Now they

:20:59.:21:02.

come towards the Wellington arch. This is normally just a traffic

:21:02.:21:07.

island. All closed off, no traffic today. Under the magnificent

:21:07.:21:10.

Wellington arch, going past the Memorial Gates with the stone

:21:10.:21:26.

pillars. There are the names of the Commonwealth soldiers who have been

:21:26.:21:29.

awarded the George or Victoria Cross. Commonwealth Hill is barely a

:21:29.:21:36.

hill. It dissects Buckingham Palace and Green Park. We have Olivera.

:21:36.:21:43.

Harrison. Jodie Stimpson with the front group as well. Good action so

:21:43.:21:48.

far from Jodie Stimpson, the winner in kits built, third in Madrid, the

:21:48.:21:56.

winner in Yokohama. Stimpson was fifth last time in Stockholm. Down

:21:56.:22:02.

towards Buckingham Palace. Quite quiet down here on this Saturday

:22:02.:22:08.

morning. The Spanish rider very comfortable, seventh in the Olympic

:22:08.:22:12.

Games, one of those athletes who sits in quietly, but also can be a

:22:13.:22:21.

danger on the run. Is that Haug? She has a problem of some kind. This

:22:21.:22:31.

could be the German tactic, as she is looking, waiting a long time,

:22:31.:22:38.

waiting for Annie Haug. Being overtaken by group of six or seven,

:22:39.:22:41.

waiting for Annie Haug. Being doing the right thing by the team,

:22:41.:22:47.

but no sign of her compatriot yet. This is a difficult position. She is

:22:47.:22:50.

wondering if she is out on the water. Do I get on with my own race

:22:50.:22:58.

or wait for her? This was it. This was her wondering and watching with

:22:58.:23:03.

the brakes on. She went on under the Wellington arch but has a long

:23:03.:23:07.

wait, because we know it was two minutes and seven seconds, the gap

:23:07.:23:15.

from the leaders. Haug Is in contention for the title today, but

:23:15.:23:18.

at the moment, things have not gone according to plan. This front group

:23:18.:23:25.

has to work effectively. Six is a fantastic number of the course. If

:23:25.:23:31.

they take the term they can take a lead over the significant pack which

:23:32.:23:40.

includes Gwen Jorgensen. We will get these terrific pictures still. Jodie

:23:40.:23:44.

Stimpson is in fourth. She has an outside chance of taking the world

:23:44.:23:50.

triathlon series title, but it is really Gwen Jorgensen's victory for

:23:50.:23:53.

the taking. Non Stanford will hope to start making a move and getting

:23:53.:23:59.

involved with the front group. The front group has grown considerably.

:23:59.:24:03.

From 15 up to 20 riders. Back Emma front group has grown considerably.

:24:03.:24:16.

-- back-up to Hyde Park Corner. Emma Moffatt taking the lead. We have

:24:17.:24:23.

seen in every race that the bigger the front group, the slower they are

:24:23.:24:27.

probably going to go, so it is hard to get a big pack working properly.

:24:27.:24:32.

As we can see, just over a kilometre between the leaders and Annie Haug.

:24:32.:24:38.

That's a good couple of minutes, and she is a great cyclist and it's not

:24:38.:24:47.

all over yet. We have not got a full look at the pellet on so far. -- the

:24:47.:24:53.

pellet on. Making a move before they look at the pellet on so far. -- the

:24:53.:25:00.

drop past the statue of Achilles. That is a big group, about 20

:25:00.:25:06.

athletes. They will have to be very committed, and they almost need a

:25:06.:25:08.

leader to get them working well in committed, and they almost need a

:25:08.:25:14.

the pack to prevent Annie Haug from writing them down. -- riding them

:25:14.:25:17.

down. She is in a impossible position. No

:25:17.:25:33.

pace at all as she waits for Haug to catch up. Here we are. The lead

:25:33.:25:38.

group is significant. We have not seen Gwen Jorgensen yet, but I think

:25:38.:25:44.

she is in their somewhere. That means that she is, with her running

:25:44.:25:50.

ability, particularly, Jorgensen she will sit at the back of the group.

:25:50.:25:54.

There she is, number one, middle of the group, the tall, slim figure.

:25:54.:25:57.

She's in the right position, with the leaders. Jorgensen's race has

:25:57.:26:02.

started superbly. The Germans still the leaders. Jorgensen's race has

:26:02.:26:08.

trying to get together and form a pair to make some inroads here. That

:26:08.:26:14.

is the Dutch rider coming past. A poor start from her. Out of the

:26:14.:26:27.

saddle, and pushing hard. One or two of the backmarkers trying to get

:26:27.:26:30.

involved as they come towards the end of the first lap. Jodie Stimpson

:26:30.:26:44.

and Natalie Milne. Olivera, and, significantly, Jorgensen is there.

:26:44.:26:59.

23 riders in total in the front group. Still the German tactics are

:26:59.:27:14.

for number 18 Knapp to wait for Haug it to arrive. This is tough for

:27:14.:27:24.

Knapp, she was part of the team in Germany that won the team

:27:24.:27:27.

championship injured -- Hamburg a few months ago. -- that one. A bit

:27:27.:27:36.

of chitchat going on between the lead riders. They need to share the

:27:36.:27:41.

workload here. Well on their way on the second lap now. One or two speed

:27:41.:27:45.

bumps to be absorbed, and the pace is now coming from number five, from

:27:45.:27:52.

New Zealand. 37 in the lead group is Olivera of Brazil. She did have a

:27:52.:27:57.

big shunt during the Olympic cycle stage 12 months ago and hit the deck

:27:57.:28:03.

hard down by the Palace. There is a little mini breakaway at the front.

:28:03.:28:07.

A couple of them trying to get clear, but they can be reeled in

:28:07.:28:12.

quite quickly. We saw the tactic employed by Alistair Brownlee in

:28:12.:28:16.

Stockholm in the previous race. But he left his charge until much later

:28:16.:28:19.

in the race. The Germans have come together at last. Haug And Knapp

:28:19.:28:27.

have joined forces. Can make make a dent in what has become a massive

:28:27.:28:32.

lead for the front group of 23? They are working together but a lot later

:28:32.:28:37.

than anticipated. You would not put your money on Hani Haug -- Annie

:28:37.:28:47.

Haug right now. The way they are riding compared to the front pack,

:28:47.:28:51.

you can guarantee they are riding a lot faster, but still just about two

:28:51.:28:54.

minutes down. Back with the leaders, lot faster, but still just about two

:28:54.:29:00.

following them from the helicopter shot, which means we can distinguish

:29:00.:29:07.

the cyclists through the fog. 32.5 kilometres to ride still. A group of

:29:07.:29:14.

23. Non Stanford has incurred a penalty. 15 second stop-go penalty

:29:14.:29:22.

that she will have to take on any of the laps on the run, of which there

:29:22.:29:27.

are three. She can take it at any time. It is significant, because she

:29:27.:29:31.

is with the leaders at the moment. But she will be aware that the

:29:31.:29:36.

penalty has been incurred. Another penalty has been given to Charlotte

:29:36.:29:47.

Bonin of Italy and is another one to pick up the 15 second penalty,

:29:47.:29:52.

similar to Jonathan Brownlee at the Olympic Games last year. Anne Haug

:29:52.:30:01.

still just two minutes down, the same difference after the first

:30:01.:30:06.

swim, and the first lap of the bike course. Emma Moffatt and Sarah Groff

:30:06.:30:09.

swim, and the first lap of the bike setting the pace on the water. The

:30:09.:30:16.

bad news is Non Stanford did not manage to get her wet suit into her

:30:16.:30:22.

box on transition, picking up a 15 second penalty, so Jodie Stimpson

:30:22.:30:26.

looks the better placed of the British so far. She and Non Stanford

:30:26.:30:30.

both riding with this lead group, currently lead I Jodie Stimpson in

:30:31.:30:41.

the dark strip. They could look like the Americans with that kit. It is

:30:41.:30:45.

Stinson pushing the pace at the front. It looks like she has Non

:30:45.:30:51.

Stanford for company as they head for the second time. -- Stimpson

:30:51.:30:58.

pushing the pace. These athletes cannot afford to sit in and not

:30:58.:31:03.

attempt some sort of breakaway. Gwen Jorgensen has the fastest 10k by

:31:03.:31:09.

over one minute. If you wait for the run, you could know that first place

:31:09.:31:15.

has gone. Possibly Non Stanford and Jodie Stimpson could have discussed

:31:15.:31:19.

an attack. You have to be very committed when you do that. With

:31:19.:31:25.

seven laps in total, you would think that the fourth or fifth would be

:31:25.:31:33.

the time to make a move. So that is, not quite the chase group, a

:31:33.:31:37.

little farther behind, involving the two Germans, Anne Haug, Anja Knapp,

:31:37.:31:46.

around the Victoria Memorial again. The triangle takes them onto bird

:31:46.:31:54.

cage Walk, getting into the direction back towards the parts to

:31:54.:32:00.

complete lap two of seven. The pace is relaxed at the front, partly due

:32:00.:32:05.

to the wet conditions of the roads, and maybe they need to up it, and

:32:05.:32:13.

the Germans will make a dent in this lead and riding as a parent is much

:32:13.:32:21.

safer than a group of 23. Moffatt taking it easy, but a huge pile-up,

:32:21.:32:26.

two hitting the deck, a right royal pile-up at the Palace! Was that Gwen

:32:26.:32:37.

Jorgensen? It could be, we will get confirmation, her race could be

:32:37.:32:42.

over! Something is not right. It looks like Jorgensen is down,

:32:42.:32:50.

desperately trying to fix her bike, she has lost her chained and could

:32:50.:32:54.

have lost her chance to become the champion of the world. Jorgensen

:32:54.:33:02.

cannot get the chain back on, cannot get any purchase, cannot get the

:33:02.:33:08.

rear wheel to turn, a nightmare for the American! Back on now, can she

:33:08.:33:14.

move away? Feedback on the pedals, caught out by the wet conditions,

:33:14.:33:20.

hit the deck hard, she will be sore to say the least, but is she able to

:33:20.:33:25.

continue and have any significant further involvement? It will be

:33:25.:33:32.

interesting. The two German athletes behind her, she will have to work on

:33:32.:33:35.

interesting. The two German athletes and work with them, but Anne Haug

:33:35.:33:39.

will not want to work with her, and all depending if she and her bike

:33:39.:33:46.

are in one piece. What drama! All three of the World Championship

:33:46.:33:50.

contenders having the issues, Abu swim for Anne Haug, the lack of wet

:33:50.:33:59.

suit for Non Stanford at transition, and this crash for Gwen Jorgensen.

:33:59.:34:04.

The second rider came away unscathed and was able to write clear of the

:34:05.:34:09.

accident. Devastating for her world title hopes. A lot to make up from

:34:10.:34:18.

last year's Olympics, going in as one of the dark horses, finishing

:34:18.:34:24.

38th, coming here with such high hopes of making up for that. But it

:34:24.:34:30.

looks like her race might be over unless she gets with the German duo,

:34:30.:34:34.

jumps on the back of that, and can get pulled up back to the front

:34:34.:34:40.

pack. It looks like the Italian, Alice Betto, has decided to move

:34:40.:34:45.

things back up. And neither a look at that incident, and Jorgensen went

:34:45.:34:54.

down face first. And lucky not to bring anyone else down. It looks

:34:54.:34:58.

like one did come down, but managed to get back on the pack. The wet

:34:58.:35:05.

roads proving a real hazard and the pace is significantly lower than

:35:05.:35:09.

normally seen on a dry day at the World Triathlon Series. Disappearing

:35:09.:35:12.

under the trees heading back up towards the end of the second lap

:35:13.:35:22.

and the lead group, now down to our by 21, following the crash with

:35:22.:35:27.

Jorgensen and that other athlete midway through number two. That will

:35:27.:35:33.

and nerve the girls, aware that the roads are quite obviously wet and

:35:33.:35:38.

slippery, but when you see one athlete go down, it can make you

:35:38.:35:48.

nervous and more cautious. Coming towards the end of lap number two,

:35:48.:35:52.

and we can check on who is still involved, who has been dropped, who

:35:52.:35:57.

has joined the lead group. A good crowd starting to form, the blue

:35:57.:36:02.

carpet signalling the end of transition and the end of the second

:36:02.:36:17.

lap. We think we have lost Jorgensen. Non Stanford not involved

:36:17.:36:18.

with the crash, so still involved Jorgensen. Non Stanford not involved

:36:18.:36:23.

with leading group. Natalie Milne is there. But Stanford still has that

:36:23.:36:30.

15 penalty to take, which she will take on one of the three laps on the

:36:30.:36:36.

run. And meanwhile, a dejected looking Gwen Jorgensen all on her

:36:36.:36:41.

own. A world champion in waiting and I wonder if she is able to continue.

:36:41.:36:48.

Any significant damage to the bike? And away that the two Germans are

:36:48.:36:53.

behind her and working hard to get back to the leaders pack? Not a lot

:36:53.:36:59.

of team are going on. Andrea Hewitt from New Zealand pushing the pace.

:36:59.:37:09.

-- not a lot of teamwork going on. And Non Stanford and Jodie Stimpson

:37:09.:37:13.

in the middle there. Hopefully keeping out of trouble. Back into

:37:13.:37:20.

the park now. The roads have been closed off all week in Hyde Park for

:37:20.:37:22.

the park now. The roads have been all the various junior events, the

:37:22.:37:31.

under 23 world champions, after long week, swimming, cycling, running

:37:32.:37:38.

action, and the conclusion is the two days of elite racing, with

:37:38.:37:41.

British triathletes in the running for the world title, Non Stanford

:37:41.:37:51.

still has that 15 second penalty. Stimpson and Stanford not split by

:37:51.:38:03.

much on world standings. 1200 points for the wind here today. Hewitt

:38:03.:38:09.

could still become the World Triathlon Series champion for 2013.

:38:09.:38:18.

-- Jodie Stimpson could still become the World Triathlon Series champion

:38:18.:38:25.

for 2013. And her compatriot, Non Stanford, still has to stop for 15

:38:25.:38:31.

seconds. Jodie has so much confidence, I was reading an

:38:31.:38:35.

interview, and she had hoped for possibly top ten overall finish in

:38:35.:38:39.

this series at the start of the year, but she has matured beyond

:38:39.:38:45.

belief and is so strong now in all three disciplines. At the end of lap

:38:45.:38:55.

three, with four to go, the chasers are desperately trying to hold their

:38:56.:39:01.

way back into contention. I have had no news for a while from Gwen

:39:01.:39:11.

Jorgensen. The tennis courts, one is in play! On a wet Saturday morning

:39:11.:39:17.

and the rain getting harder and heavier. There is the Diana,

:39:17.:39:23.

Princess of Wales Memorial, the stone ring fountain, opened in 2004.

:39:23.:39:31.

We do not want to get ahead of ourselves, but I think if Jodie was

:39:31.:39:37.

to win to date and take the title, she would be the third British

:39:37.:39:41.

female athlete to take it since the world triathlon series, which

:39:41.:39:48.

started 24 years ago, we saw Helen Tucker take the championship title

:39:48.:39:50.

in 2008 and 2011, and Leanda Cave Tucker take the championship title

:39:50.:39:53.

back in 2002. Just pictures they are of the third

:39:53.:40:18.

German athlete, I wonder if she knows what is going on behind her

:40:18.:40:23.

with her team-mates. She has her gloves there, very well prepared for

:40:23.:40:27.

these cold conditions. Back to the second packed with Anne Haug really

:40:27.:40:31.

taking her turn on the frontier. No, that is her team-mate Anja Knapp.

:40:31.:40:37.

taking her turn on the frontier. No, Anne Haug is just tucked in behind,

:40:37.:40:42.

desperately trying to claw back that more than two minute deficit they

:40:42.:40:48.

incurred after their swim, when Anja Knapp was asked to hand back to wait

:40:48.:40:53.

for Anne Haug to arrive, it is now three minutes plus. Jodie Stimpson

:40:53.:41:00.

was first at the end of lap three, the gap off three minutes and 20

:41:00.:41:10.

seconds to Anne Haug and her group, enormous in triathlon terms. And

:41:10.:41:16.

four laps built to write, and the chance one-minute or one minute and

:41:16.:41:21.

a half could be taken and too much for Anne Haug to keep up. The

:41:21.:41:27.

distinct possibility of a battle for the world title between the two

:41:27.:41:32.

British, Jodie Stimpson and Non Stanford, bearing in mind Non

:41:32.:41:36.

Stanford has a 15 minute penalty to come during the run. The same thing

:41:36.:41:40.

happened to Jonathan Brownlee in the come during the run. The same thing

:41:40.:41:43.

Olympic race last summer and still held on to take bronze. This front

:41:43.:41:50.

group, their pace certainly has been deceptive. I did not think they were

:41:51.:41:55.

working that well together, but must be, because the time between them

:41:55.:41:59.

and Anne Haug is growing, three minutes and 20 seconds,

:41:59.:42:04.

and Anne Haug is growing, three under the Wellington Arch, cleared

:42:04.:42:13.

of tourists and cleared of sightseers today, and people

:42:13.:42:18.

beginning to come out to watch the race. Buckingham Palace Gardens, 40

:42:18.:42:24.

acres in total on the right, Green Park on the left, freewheeling down

:42:24.:42:29.

Constitution Hill with just under half way still to ride. Just under

:42:29.:42:37.

20 kilometres on two wields. I wonder what is going on in the front

:42:37.:42:42.

pack, difficult to know the disaster is going on behind them, not unlike

:42:42.:42:46.

the Tour de France where they will have an earpiece and team members

:42:46.:42:53.

shouting through what is happening, trouble they not know Gwen Jorgensen

:42:54.:42:57.

is out of the race, or that Anne Haug is over three minutes down.

:42:58.:43:04.

Just coming round, we can see the race starting to come down roads

:43:04.:43:09.

very wet and the triathletes riding very cautiously and I do not blame

:43:09.:43:15.

them. If Jodie Stimpson wins, and Non Stanford finishes second,

:43:15.:43:19.

Stanford will still be world champion. That is the only some I

:43:19.:43:25.

have managed to do in my head in the last few minutes with all the

:43:25.:43:28.

drama. Back row the only sounds I have managed. Shall give everything

:43:28.:43:37.

as it develops. Down into the ten kilometre run and when and how do

:43:37.:43:42.

the penalty will affect Non Stanford. She will have to stop,

:43:42.:43:47.

come out, stands still for 15 seconds, then start running again,

:43:48.:43:52.

always a tough call. Back with the Germans, Anne Haug still in the

:43:52.:43:56.

running for a World Championship title, way off the pace, three

:43:56.:44:05.

minutes down last time we saw. A lone biker on the right-hand side of

:44:05.:44:09.

the road there. The elite triathletes asked to stay on the

:44:09.:44:15.

left-hand side. Just looking at the 10k splits over the course of the

:44:15.:44:21.

year and for Jodie to beat Non Stanford, she has to run at a

:44:21.:44:26.

roundabout 30 seconds faster, quite a lot, so that 15 seconds Non

:44:27.:44:32.

Stanford will sit out half of that time, but Jodie Stimpson needing the

:44:32.:44:36.

run of her life to beat Non Stanford on this run course.

:44:36.:45:14.

How Deep into the fourth lap, 18.4 kilometres to ride as they pass over

:45:14.:45:21.

the New Zealand and Australian War Memorial. Deteriorating conditions.

:45:21.:45:33.

Very difficult triathlon conditions, starting with the cold

:45:33.:45:37.

water of the Serpentine, then the damp streets of central London. And

:45:37.:45:48.

there is Gwen Jorgensen. I think these are recorded pictures, and

:45:48.:45:54.

Jorgensen is out of the race and on her way to the medical centre. As

:45:54.:46:01.

far as we are led to believe, the race is over 30 American. She was

:46:01.:46:07.

the leader in the series for 2013 -- for the American. She arrived in

:46:07.:46:10.

high hopes that she could make an impact, but that crash by the

:46:10.:46:15.

Palace. She is warmly applauded by the grad. The crash by the Palace

:46:15.:46:20.

has put paid to her ambitions -- by the crowd. She cuts a sorrowful

:46:20.:46:27.

figure as she exits the race, and she has officially retired from the

:46:27.:46:30.

London grand finale. All over for your Ganson. -- Gwen Jorgensen. So,

:46:30.:46:42.

Stimpson is in contention for the world triathlon series title.

:46:42.:46:47.

Exchanging a few words with Emma Moffat. Gwen Jorgensen does not like

:46:47.:46:51.

talking to the media at the best of times, so she won't want to talk to

:46:51.:47:01.

anybody at all right now. Devastating for Gwen Jorgensen.

:47:01.:47:06.

Backward Jodie Stimpson again. -- back with Jodie Stimpson. Amazing

:47:06.:47:12.

how Gwen Jorgensen got the transition so wrong. They call it

:47:12.:47:16.

the fourth discipline of the triathlon. A simple mistake of not

:47:16.:47:23.

putting the wet suit in the box. That costing her becoming world

:47:23.:47:29.

champion a possibility. There are still various mathematical

:47:29.:47:31.

possibilities as the race unfolds. At the end of the fourth lap, still

:47:31.:47:35.

possibilities as the race unfolds. a significantly large group.

:47:35.:47:44.

Stimpson is officially in ninth, with the other two fighting behind

:47:44.:47:47.

as we say goodbye again to Gwen Jorgensen. We will check on the gap

:47:47.:47:53.

to the chasers in a moment. It should be around 23 in the lead

:47:53.:48:04.

group, no, it has grown to 24. Bonin Is the last of them through.

:48:04.:48:09.

Crossing over the Serpentine Bridge now, and they are getting welcomed

:48:09.:48:14.

as they come into the transition to complete their fourth lap. The

:48:14.:48:25.

second pack about come through the transition. Coming up to one

:48:25.:48:30.

minute, and still no sign of the German duo, a good couple of minutes

:48:30.:48:36.

behind the second lap. We think that Non Stanford, if she finishes third

:48:36.:48:42.

or below, then Jodie Stimpson will win the race, then Jodie Saint --

:48:42.:48:47.

Stimpson will become world champion. It was all about Gwen Jorgensen,

:48:47.:48:55.

Stanford and anyhow, but suddenly looks like she might just be about

:48:55.:49:01.

to be favourite to become world champion -- Stanford and and how. It

:49:01.:49:09.

depends how she responds after the 15th -- 15 second penalty. Jodie

:49:09.:49:18.

would need a 32nd lead on Non Stanford, and when she gets the bit

:49:18.:49:22.

between her teeth there will be no stopping her. She came into the race

:49:22.:49:24.

so relaxed, the underdog, and when she gets the bit between her teeth

:49:24.:49:27.

there will be no stopping her. She came into the race so relaxed, the

:49:27.:49:30.

underdog, a nice position to your own race and not bearing in mind

:49:30.:49:40.

that Stanford has the choice of which lap she can take the penalty,

:49:40.:49:44.

where would she do it? I think she would have to do it right at the

:49:44.:49:48.

beginning. It is hard to be going flat out and then stop. We saw

:49:48.:49:53.

Johnny Bramley in the Olympics, and that is difficult. -- Johnny

:49:53.:49:59.

Brownlee. It is not quite as hard when you are mid-run. Deep into the

:49:59.:50:11.

fifth lap of seven now. This triathlon, the first part of the

:50:11.:50:14.

double-header this weekend with the men's race due off at 1:30pm on

:50:14.:50:21.

Sunday afternoon, live on BBC Two, and we have had plenty of drama and

:50:22.:50:27.

excitement so far. The men's race still to come, so a mouthwatering

:50:27.:50:34.

prospect with two days of triathlon. There is the subplot as

:50:34.:50:40.

well developing with the Germans Haug and Anja Knapp, who have joined

:50:40.:50:45.

up with the others, as they determinedly ride through the

:50:45.:50:49.

streets and through the park. Attempting to close the gap. We will

:50:49.:50:53.

have a look at how that gap is. It was three minutes and eight seconds

:50:54.:50:59.

at one point. I think it is down to three minutes and 30 now. Three

:50:59.:51:06.

minutes and 30 seconds between the leaders and this pack, led by the

:51:06.:51:16.

two Germans, Haug Knapp and -- how and -- Haug and Knapp. She has a

:51:16.:51:26.

good chance of running down the front pack, but now looking at that

:51:26.:51:30.

three and a half minute deficit, it will be quite difficult to catch

:51:30.:51:38.

some of these slower runners. The rain falling quite heavily now. We

:51:38.:51:45.

had a dry -ish morning. The forecast just about coming true as the rain

:51:45.:51:48.

starts to fall. Thankfully the helicopter can stay in the air as

:51:48.:51:53.

the riders pass under the magnificent Wellington Arch. I am

:51:53.:52:00.

wondering if anyone is thinking about making a break because it is

:52:00.:52:04.

wet, it will be a bit dangerous and it could be a disaster to come off

:52:04.:52:08.

at this point in the race. The likes of Andrea Hewitt, who knows she

:52:08.:52:12.

can't go as fast as the others, she might think, with the second lap

:52:12.:52:17.

left, she might put the hammer down for the transition with ten or 20

:52:17.:52:23.

seconds lead on the chasers. Jessica Harrison, formerly of Great

series event under the French colours which has been her nation of

:52:30.:52:34.

choice pretty much throughout her elite triathlon career. Still at the

:52:34.:52:42.

back, Emma Jackson, sitting at the back of the pack where she seems to

:52:42.:52:49.

have spent the entire season. I brownie points, but to be honest,

:52:51.:52:56.

the girls in front are much stronger cyclists and she cannot do much, so

:52:56.:53:00.

she might as well wait for the run. She has a great run. We saw her race

:53:00.:53:04.

really well at the Olympics. Harrison has called it a day, I

:53:04.:53:09.

think. She has got a bike problem. She needs a new wheel. She will lose

:53:09.:53:18.

a good deal of time. The front group have ridden away from me French

:53:18.:53:24.

triathlete, Jessica Harrison, she clearly has a mechanical problem.

:53:24.:53:26.

She will be changing the wheel right now. The grit to stick to the tyres

:53:26.:53:33.

and rubber, and that is what has happened. I would not be surprised

:53:33.:53:36.

and rubber, and that is what has if we did not see one or two more

:53:36.:53:43.

retirees by the end of the race. Buckingham Palace originally known

:53:43.:53:47.

as Buckingham house, and became the official royal palace when Queen

:53:47.:53:51.

Victoria came to the throne in 1837. Jessica Harrison realising she

:53:51.:53:55.

has a puncture, and it is dangerous in these wet conditions as the air

:53:55.:54:01.

comes out of the tyre. Harrison going to the area where the spare

:54:02.:54:06.

wheels are kept down in front of Buckingham Palace. We can see the

:54:06.:54:10.

inner quadrant. Magnificent gardens stretching out behind. Jackson still

:54:10.:54:16.

at the back of the pack where she is happy to remain throughout this

:54:16.:54:22.

cycle section. We are back with the Germans, and look at the effort that

:54:22.:54:32.

and how -- at Haug is putting in. Trying to claw back the time. There

:54:32.:54:36.

is no way that she can close the gap. With the effort she is putting

:54:36.:54:39.

is no way that she can close the in on this 40 kilometre bike ride

:54:39.:54:42.

you wonder what she will have left for the run. The end of the fifth

:54:42.:54:48.

lap, and the triathlon has been in process now for one hour and seven

:54:48.:54:53.

minutes and 55 seconds. We still have the last two laps and the ten

:54:53.:55:00.

kilometres to go. We can have a full check with Stanford and Natalie

:55:00.:55:06.

Milne and Jodie Stimpson Wall featuring -- all featuring in the

:55:06.:55:12.

first few times. Joined by some good runners here. But you have to think

:55:12.:55:16.

first few times. Joined by some good that Stimpson and Stanford are the

:55:16.:55:22.

strongest runners still featuring in this elite group. Jodie talked about

:55:22.:55:29.

her legs and how they feel on the road, but she said you do not know

:55:29.:55:34.

until you step off the bike and know if you have your running legs. She

:55:34.:55:38.

has all her family and friends here. It is going to be a pretty exciting

:55:38.:55:44.

occasion for Jodie to be racing on home soil. She spoke about how

:55:44.:55:51.

important it would be to her, the three weeks off after her race she

:55:51.:55:58.

will spend it all but her family. It is getting wetter. The rainfall

:55:58.:56:00.

becoming more and more significant now. And the chasing group are

:56:00.:56:09.

coming through. Jessica Harrison, the puncture cost her 30 seconds in

:56:09.:56:14.

the end. She is riding on her own at the moment. 30 seconds behind the

:56:14.:56:17.

lead group. The chasers are coming through. Jessica said she is going

:56:17.:56:30.

to retire after the race. Katie Hewison is through, one and a half

:56:30.:56:37.

minutes of the pace. Fernandez, number 35, also with the chasing

:56:37.:56:41.

group. The leaders well on their way now. And the time, an energy bar for

:56:41.:56:54.

Stanford and Stimpson. Number three, third in the world triathlon series

:56:54.:56:56.

championship and she will be well aware she has got the 15 pack --

:56:57.:57:04.

second penalty to come. That is Jodie Stimpson, from Oldbury, in the

:57:04.:57:09.

West Midlands. Well positioned, Stimpson. It could be a battle

:57:10.:57:13.

between Stimpson and Stanford for the world title. Olive Eire from

:57:13.:57:21.

Brazil, number 37, coming through. Number seven is Ashley capital

:57:21.:57:31.

letter gentle -- is Ashley Gentle. 14 in the background, Sarah Groff of

:57:31.:57:37.

the US, group -- a decent runner. She could feature in the top five

:57:37.:57:41.

places today. Number 17 coming through, the Italian, another good

:57:41.:57:47.

swimmer and biker, but has she got the legs for the run? We will find

:57:47.:57:54.

out in the next 20 minutes or so. A bit of information on Ashley

:57:54.:58:02.

Gentle, she was the 2010 world junior champion, and she is one of

:58:03.:58:07.

those athletes in the top sentence and still has her eye on a podium

:58:07.:58:16.

position -- in the top seven. Sato is the leading rider officially. The

:58:16.:58:24.

Germans, they have only taken three seconds out of it during that lap.

:58:24.:58:30.

So, no dent made, no significant margin gained for Haug. You have to

:58:30.:58:43.

be impressed by her determination -- her determination, but she does not

:58:43.:58:46.

like she is giving up. The only thing that can happen is that the

:58:46.:58:50.

front pack give up a little bit and they might gain a bit of time.

:58:50.:58:56.

Heading for the Wellington Arch, coming up the Constitution Hill

:58:56.:59:02.

again. The Wellington Arch originally had an law -- an enormous

:59:02.:59:05.

statue of the Duke of Wellington on top of it, but it was moved and put

:59:05.:59:13.

up again in Aldershot at the top of the arch there which is now adorned

:59:13.:59:20.

with the quad region which represents the Angel of peace coming

:59:20.:59:25.

down onto the chariot of war. Through the memorial gates with just

:59:25.:59:33.

over 8.5 kilometres still to write. Down Constitution Hill again --

:59:33.:59:34.

still to ride. Familiar sight, the Down Constitution Hill again --

:59:35.:59:40.

green and gold colours of Australia, Down Constitution Hill again --

:59:40.:59:43.

Emma Jackson, having a nice little ride around this 40 kilometre bike

:59:43.:59:52.

course. It is getting more and more difficult for the helicopter to

:59:52.:59:54.

bring us the shots as the weather worsens.

:59:54.:00:02.

Three and a half minutes between the leaders and the German period of

:00:02.:00:12.

Anja Knapp and Anne Haug, shaping up nicely from a British perspective as

:00:12.:00:17.

they come down in front of the Victoria Memorial for the

:00:17.:00:22.

penultimate time and the triangle taking them to bird cage walk, the

:00:22.:00:28.

other side of the road before returning again to the park at the

:00:28.:00:30.

other side of the road before top of Constitution Hill. Bird cage

:00:30.:00:40.

Walk. Left-handed now, around this woodland. The chance on the course

:00:40.:00:44.

to get a look at the chasers. Being 3.5 minutes and find, -- behind, too

:00:44.:00:55.

far back. The Germans may not yet be out of the park. Fairly well spread

:00:55.:01:00.

here, everyone riding most of this bike course in single file. It looks

:01:00.:01:10.

like we have an attack on the front there, I can see one rider, one big

:01:11.:01:16.

gap, two riders, then another big gap. We will see who is in front

:01:16.:01:22.

once we track from the back of the course, the camera struggling with

:01:22.:01:27.

the moisture, and up towards the front to see who has made the

:01:27.:01:37.

break. It is Jackson and Bonin at the back. A bit more ardent as we

:01:37.:01:44.

get to the last but one lap. -- a bit more urgency. This is when we

:01:44.:01:49.

had a break in the Stockholm race, which proved to be a winning break.

:01:49.:01:55.

You have to be committed when doing an attack, no point doing that for

:01:55.:02:00.

ten seconds, Alistair Brownlee put his head down and did not look back,

:02:00.:02:10.

which paid off. Absolutely. Yuka Sato of Japan, possibly ending up

:02:10.:02:16.

with a season's best to date. A lot of athletes who have not featured,

:02:16.:02:22.

possibly not seeing the problems that beset Gwen Jorgensen, and Anne

:02:22.:02:27.

Haug, and the 15 second penalty for Non Stanford. One athlete in that

:02:27.:02:39.

front pack is Ai Ueda from Japan. In 2013, certainly picked up her game,

:02:39.:02:43.

and a decent runner, I would expect 2013, certainly picked up her game,

:02:43.:02:48.

to see her in the urgent stages of the run. Taking the Bell, then one

:02:48.:03:00.

more lap to ride. It would be nice to see an attack, making it

:03:00.:03:07.

exciting. Some might try to set up a shot at the lead. Maybe Non

:03:07.:03:11.

Stanford, who knows she has a 15 second penalty to come, and as they

:03:11.:03:16.

fly over the Palace of Westminster here, the helicopter steering clear

:03:16.:03:21.

of the cloud. If Non Stanford knows she has a 15 second penalty to

:03:22.:03:26.

come, maybe she will try to make up for it and cancel it out by getting

:03:26.:03:31.

herself 10-12 seconds in front at the end of the bike course, possibly

:03:31.:03:36.

at tactic she will employees. We will see her decision as the riders

:03:36.:03:40.

come back towards where it all started again to conclude lap. You

:03:40.:03:47.

come back towards where it all can see in the back, some of the

:03:47.:03:54.

athletes having a bit of a chitchat, a bit of a tell-tale sign that the

:03:54.:03:58.

pace has dropped and they are cruising around what is meant to be

:03:58.:04:05.

the last lap very shortly. This is something the Brownlee brothers

:04:05.:04:08.

prefer not to do, taking it out hard, some prefer to have a little

:04:08.:04:12.

prefer not to do, taking it out break in the last lap. On the

:04:12.:04:16.

right-hand side, the Japanese riders. A determined move to the

:04:17.:04:23.

front by Non Stanford. 17 minutes and 25 seconds. Stanford moves to

:04:23.:04:31.

the front. And it is the end of lap six with one to go, taking the

:04:31.:04:37.

bell, Stimson keeping out of trouble. Emma Moffatt, who has had a

:04:37.:04:44.

horrific race so far, doing plenty of the work. With one lap to go, the

:04:45.:04:59.

Japanese cross first. Rebecca Robisch the best of the Germans

:04:59.:05:05.

today. Natalie Milne on course for a personal best today. And a good

:05:05.:05:13.

opportunity to get involved for Stanford and Stimpson, completing

:05:13.:05:16.

the bike, and recording her best ever result. Back with the Germans

:05:16.:05:25.

now. We expect the time between them to have shrunk now. But not

:05:25.:05:30.

significantly. They were not even back in the park, still a way to go.

:05:30.:05:36.

Vanessa Raw, we have not seen her yet, racing very well in Stockholm.

:05:36.:05:42.

Sadly not making the front pack today, which is unusual for Vanessa.

:05:42.:05:47.

She has a strong swim, but pushing this second pack, seeing if they can

:05:47.:05:52.

claw back a few seconds before the run. Vicky Holland is also in the

:05:52.:06:00.

race, finishing fourth in Stockholm, lots of British interest bill in

:06:00.:06:06.

this final World Triathlon Series race of 2013. All began in Auckland

:06:06.:06:13.

one by Anne Haug, when Jorgensen took the win in San Diego, coming

:06:13.:06:18.

from a long way back. In Yokohama, Gwen Jorgensen one again. Stanford

:06:18.:06:25.

had her maiden win in Madrid still is the end Kitzbuhel in the Austrian

:06:26.:06:31.

apps, it was Jodie Stimpson. Gwen Jorgensen triumphed again in

:06:31.:06:37.

Stockholm. It is all about the series of eight races over the

:06:37.:06:44.

year. Although Jackson was prerace favourite to become world champion

:06:44.:06:48.

today, -- although Gwen Jorgensen was prerace favourite to become

:06:48.:06:54.

world champion today, hard bicycle crash has played into the hands of

:06:54.:07:00.

Stanford or Stimpson, dependent on this 15 second penalty that Stanford

:07:00.:07:08.

has to undertake. And we have Rachel from Holland, the current European

:07:08.:07:13.

champion, in the front pack, not seeing her taking much of a turn on

:07:13.:07:18.

the front. Saving her legs for the 10k run. Stimpson and Stanford, in

:07:18.:07:30.

close proximity. Stanford starting to think about this penalty she has

:07:30.:07:34.

to take. A brilliant runner. And this is what it was all about. That

:07:34.:07:40.

wet suit did not make it into the box, and she will serve a 15 second

:07:40.:07:45.

penalty for equipment out of the box. It is harsh, but she knows the

:07:45.:07:52.

rules. Really harsh. But if all athletes threw down their wet suit,

:07:52.:07:56.

the transition area would be a mess, it has to be one rule for

:07:56.:08:01.

everyone. Pretty harsh because half was in the wet box. I do not know

:08:01.:08:08.

what she was thinking. I would like to say inexperienced, but she is

:08:08.:08:13.

not. Inexperienced at the start of this year, but not now. The Germans

:08:13.:08:17.

now complete their sixth lap, one more to go for them. No timing that

:08:17.:08:24.

time, we know it was three minutes, 27 seconds last time. Three, 23,

:08:24.:08:30.

taking a further four seconds, but no significant move by Anne Haug and

:08:30.:08:41.

Anja Knapp, joined in this group by Maaike Caelers and one or two macro

:08:41.:08:47.

others. The only positive thing in the last two macro laps is not

:08:47.:08:51.

losing any more time, but losing a huge amount in the first half and of

:08:51.:09:02.

course in the swimming as well. Haug certainly giving it everything. But

:09:02.:09:09.

with so many good writers, it was always going to be a tough call. --

:09:09.:09:15.

riders. I wondered what was going on with Anne Haug, not a great swimmer,

:09:15.:09:20.

but to get so far behind. Just difficult times for her. She

:09:20.:09:25.

separated from her coach, Darren Smith, who has turned her around in

:09:25.:09:29.

the last two macro years from pretty much a nobody up to an athlete that

:09:29.:09:34.

is chasing the World Championship title. A change of circumstances,

:09:34.:09:41.

back to the German federation, quite pleased to get her back, I think,

:09:41.:09:46.

Anne Haug, and they went on to win that relay team really in Stockholm

:09:46.:09:55.

where she also won the individual sprint there, but things not going

:09:55.:09:58.

in the right direction since. Finishing third in Stockholm behind

:09:59.:10:04.

Gwen Jorgensen and Non Stanford. That's the place in Stockholm put

:10:04.:10:09.

her into contention for the World Triathlon Series, but with the

:10:09.:10:13.

dreadful swim here in the early morning in Hyde Park, that has left

:10:13.:10:21.

her with a mountain to climb. Helped along by Anja Knapp, 18, and the

:10:21.:10:25.

rest of this group who are desperately trying to bridge the

:10:26.:10:30.

gap, but it has been a thankless task, just a couple of seconds each

:10:31.:10:36.

lap, sometimes we can see riders chasing down a gap of one minute or

:10:36.:10:41.

more during a 40 K right, but has not happened for the Germans and the

:10:41.:10:43.

rest of their group. If you look at not happened for the Germans and the

:10:43.:10:50.

the style of Anne Haug's riding, in that a row position, she looks like

:10:50.:10:55.

she is giving it her all, and surprisingly that they have not

:10:55.:10:59.

managed to claw back more time, because the front pack has not

:10:59.:11:03.

looked particularly tidy, but it just goes to show the pace they are

:11:03.:11:08.

riding is obviously significantly faster than the Germans. Not that it

:11:08.:11:13.

has anything to do with Emma Jackson, still at the back as she

:11:13.:11:17.

was at the start, she just sits at the tail end, does none of the work

:11:18.:11:23.

at the front, keeps herself out of trouble, nothing in the rules of the

:11:23.:11:27.

old system of triathlon when drafting was not committing. It was

:11:27.:11:34.

impossible to police, of course, and Jackson would have to do plenty of

:11:34.:11:39.

work, but in drafting races, she is able to sit there and enjoy the

:11:39.:11:46.

ride. And why not? If you can. But playing a very sensible race. Emma

:11:46.:11:51.

Jackson has a great run, knows this cause well, seven that the Olympics,

:11:51.:11:57.

second in Kitzbuhel, seventh in Hamburg, very fit coming into this

:11:57.:12:02.

race, and it is now back to Anja Knapp they're really trying to push

:12:02.:12:07.

the pace on this last lap. Trying to bring back that 3.5 minutes. May be

:12:07.:12:14.

taking a few seconds out of the lead in this final lap coming through the

:12:14.:12:21.

memorial gates once again. And heading on to partly on for this

:12:21.:12:26.

last little rectangle at the final lap on the bike. Devastating for

:12:26.:12:34.

Anne Haug. She has had a sensational season, opening up with winning in

:12:34.:12:40.

Auckland, both in San Diego, second in Madrid, first in Hamburg, beating

:12:40.:12:47.

Non Stanford, third in Stockholm, and all falling apart in the final

:12:47.:12:51.

and most important race. And swimming conditions were so good,

:12:51.:12:57.

with flat water, plenty of space, not working out for hard. We will

:12:57.:13:01.

find out what happened after the race. But it is looking like it

:13:01.:13:06.

might be one where she goes home empty-handed. She is leading this

:13:06.:13:14.

group of six along, but the leaders meanwhile are starting to think

:13:14.:13:17.

about the arrival in transition for the final time. Sarah Groff moves

:13:17.:13:24.

forward to take it up at the front. Out of the saddle, stretching them a

:13:24.:13:30.

little. Stanford and Stimpson not letting them get too far away.

:13:30.:13:35.

Reaching down shortly to undo the Velcro straps on their shoes, giving

:13:35.:13:39.

them the quickest possible transition, needing to get off right

:13:39.:13:47.

before the dismount line. The wheels still turning quickly, edition in

:13:47.:13:52.

their feet on top of the pedals to jump off over to their allotted

:13:52.:13:57.

space in transition, Park thereby, very careful to get everything in

:13:57.:14:00.

space in transition, Park thereby, the box. -- park their bicycles.

:14:00.:14:07.

Picking up their running shoes, leaving helmets behind, and then a

:14:07.:14:18.

10k run. Emma Moffatt the Queen of transition, waiting late to get her

:14:18.:14:23.

feet of the shoes. Resting feedback on to the pedals, crews in. --

:14:23.:14:35.

cruise in. Sarah Groff just about ready to go, Stanford and Stimpson

:14:35.:14:38.

cruise in. Sarah Groff just about shoulder to shoulder, and remember

:14:38.:14:42.

that Stanford has a 15 second penalty. The bike is over, running

:14:42.:14:47.

towards transition, Stanford leaving them in, will she go in early for

:14:47.:14:50.

towards transition, Stanford leaving the penalty? A huge group coming

:14:50.:14:58.

into transition to get the. Stimpson's dreams of becoming the

:14:58.:15:02.

World Triathlon Series champion of the world for 2013 very much alive.

:15:02.:15:08.

Stimpson arrives at her parking stand. Stanford there as well. The

:15:08.:15:12.

wet suit is in the bogs, but too late for her. Stimpson struggling

:15:12.:15:18.

with her left shoe. She cannot get her foot in the shoe, getting left

:15:18.:15:24.

behind, then try athlete is exiting transition at least before Stimpson

:15:24.:15:31.

got her left shoe on. I can tell you what happened, their hands are

:15:31.:15:35.

freezing, and they cannot coordinate themselves. She just could not get

:15:35.:15:40.

her foot in. The sensible riders were wearing gloves today. Out they

:15:40.:15:47.

go, and Stanford hits the front. Kicking clear of transition. She has

:15:47.:15:51.

a 15 second stop-go penalty to take and it will be her choice as to

:15:51.:15:56.

which lap she takes it on, the first, second or third. This was

:15:56.:16:02.

Stimpson coming into the transition. Her hands frozen, and she could not

:16:02.:16:06.

get her left shoe on. The right she went on straightaway. The left one

:16:06.:16:11.

would just not going. -- the right shoe. Sometimes they go on to the

:16:11.:16:19.

run with the helmet on because they physically cannot get the clip

:16:20.:16:24.

open. Finally Stimpson got the shoe on, and she's on her way. Stanford

:16:24.:16:29.

has kicked clear. This is her tactic. It could be she feels she

:16:29.:16:33.

has got the measure of the rest of them in running terms, and with no

:16:33.:16:40.

Gwen Jorgensen and Haug to content which you might be the best of the

:16:40.:16:43.

runners today. She might think she can open up a 15 second lead, take

:16:43.:16:48.

the stop-go penalty and still give herself a chance. 500 metres into

:16:48.:16:54.

the race and it looks like she has about five seconds on the pack

:16:54.:16:58.

behind her. When I saw her run in Madrid I was so impressed. She has

:16:58.:17:01.

behind her. When I saw her run in such a wonderfully relaxed

:17:01.:17:05.

technique. This was the transition from Stanford. This is where she saw

:17:05.:17:10.

the mistake, the wet suit by then had been put into the box, but it

:17:10.:17:14.

wasn't there at the end of the swim, which is what cost her. SPD

:17:14.:17:24.

transition. -- a speedy transition. Yes, but eventually the clip came

:17:24.:17:29.

off and away she went. These are the chasers, one to wearing the scars of

:17:29.:17:32.

battle. The Chinese rider has clearly hit the deck during the run.

:17:32.:17:39.

Haug Is starting to prepare for transition. Stanford on the way.

:17:39.:17:44.

Sarah Groff is next best in second. Looks like Emma Moffat is holding

:17:44.:17:49.

third. The gap between Stanford and Sarah Groff is about five seconds,

:17:49.:17:54.

maybe less, three seconds at this stage. Then a further eight or nine

:17:54.:17:58.

seconds back to Sarah Moffatt. Stanford kicking clear of the pack

:17:58.:18:06.

as the group containing Haug and Anja Knapp arrive. The gap is three

:18:06.:18:11.

minutes and 20 seconds. They took another four seconds they're out of

:18:11.:18:20.

the lead during the final cycle lap. Haug, she does not look like she's

:18:20.:18:24.

running comfortably. Grimacing as she arrives at the stand. Let's see

:18:24.:18:33.

how her transition goes. She has to hope she has her best running legs

:18:33.:18:36.

on if she is going to salvage anything in this last race of the

:18:36.:18:45.

series. Those are the visor and gets a helping hand from Anja Knapp, with

:18:45.:18:49.

an awful lot of work to do now for those two. Three laps to go. A

:18:49.:18:54.

slightly altered course to the Olympics last year. Stanford is deep

:18:54.:19:00.

into lap one, practically sprinting through the first 500 metres here.

:19:00.:19:04.

Terrific start for Non Stanford. Plenty to offer here, and Jodie

:19:05.:19:11.

Stimpson is quite a way behind. Yes, she mentioned a few weeks back that

:19:11.:19:17.

she trains with her partner, David McNamee, regular top-10 finisher,

:19:17.:19:23.

and he has trouble keeping up with her on the track. Let's not forget

:19:23.:19:29.

that Stanford has to take the standing count the 15 seconds rather

:19:29.:19:33.

like a boxer and then head back onto the course. She will hope to build

:19:33.:19:37.

up a gap of something approaching ten or 15 seconds. She is absolutely

:19:37.:19:46.

flying. It is like the pace of a 1500 metre runner. Sarah Groff

:19:46.:19:52.

cannot even stay with her at this stage. There is the gap to Emma

:19:52.:19:58.

Moffat and the group which includes Jodie Stimpson, who is in equal

:19:59.:20:05.

fifth at the moment. What a gutsy move from Non Stanford. What a

:20:05.:20:08.

season she has had. A breakthrough season in her first -- with her

:20:08.:20:16.

first win coming in Madrid, then the second in Hamburg, second in

:20:16.:20:19.

Stockholm, and she could round off the season potentially with victory

:20:19.:20:22.

and become the world champion. 15 the season potentially with victory

:20:22.:20:31.

seconds to stand still, that is the penalty for not getting her wet suit

:20:31.:20:37.

in the box. Compare the running style Stanford to Sarah Moffatt,

:20:37.:20:40.

extraordinarily different. There is Stimpson of Great Britain. Jackson,

:20:40.:20:46.

who was at the back of the pack throughout the cycle is in sixth.

:20:46.:20:50.

Andrea Hewitt looking like she is struggling with the pace. And we

:20:50.:21:07.

have lost Vanessa Raw, helped away to the medical centre, we can see

:21:07.:21:11.

that from the commentary position. The main focus will be on one of the

:21:11.:21:16.

other British triathletes as Non Stanford, from Wales, goes about her

:21:16.:21:21.

business. The tactic is clearly to open up a gap and see how much of a

:21:21.:21:27.

gap she can put over Sarah Groff and the rest of the chasing pack as they

:21:27.:21:31.

approach the end of the first lap. 3.33 kilometres to conclude the

:21:31.:21:41.

10,000. I think she will take the penalty as if she is doing a rap on

:21:41.:21:45.

the track. Then she will go again. It is going to be tough, but she

:21:45.:21:49.

will be used to doing it in training, even though it is a

:21:49.:21:52.

slightly shorter rest than used to if she was doing repetitions on the

:21:52.:21:59.

track. Haug, she is moving up through the field and seems to have

:21:59.:22:02.

rediscovered her Mojo after a dreadful swim and her lack of

:22:02.:22:07.

ability on the two wheels to close a gap to the leaders. But she is

:22:07.:22:10.

making her way and made up a few gap to the leaders. But she is

:22:10.:22:14.

places already. Sarah Groff is in second. The gap to Non Stanford is

:22:14.:22:19.

growing all the time. We can see from this camera angle that Stanford

:22:19.:22:24.

needs it to be 15 seconds or more if she wants to take the standing count

:22:24.:22:30.

and then resume the race in front. It is still possible. Remember it

:22:30.:22:35.

happened to Jonathan Brownlee a year ago. He was in third position, took

:22:35.:22:40.

the punishment, and then took his 15 second count and resumed his race.

:22:40.:22:42.

the punishment, and then took his 15 He was still in third position and

:22:42.:22:45.

went on to win the Olympic bronze medal. Now Stanford can get a good

:22:45.:22:53.

look at the gap she has opened up over Sarah Groff as she heads in the

:22:53.:23:00.

opposite direction. Just looking at some of the results when Non

:23:00.:23:03.

Stanford one in Madrid and had that fantastic final ten kilometres --

:23:03.:23:08.

one in Madrid. She was a good 30 seconds up on all of the other

:23:08.:23:13.

athletes, so are very well placed position right now, not even the

:23:13.:23:17.

first lap down, and thereafter relapsed here. I think she is going

:23:17.:23:22.

to look like the 15 seconds not going to play such a huge part now.

:23:22.:23:26.

to look like the 15 seconds not She has opened up a substantial lead

:23:26.:23:30.

bidding to become the world triathlon champion for 2013. The

:23:36.:23:43.

24-year-old, grown-up in Swansea, lives in Leeds, trains regularly

:23:43.:23:47.

with the Brownlee brothers in the North of England. She has lots to

:23:47.:23:51.

think about here, but what a good start to the race. Only Sarah Groff

:23:51.:23:55.

has managed to stay with her. And Sarah Groff is already four or five

:23:55.:24:01.

seconds off the pace. An explosive start to the final stage of this

:24:01.:24:07.

Hyde Park triathlon for Non Stanford. If she hadn't had the 15

:24:07.:24:13.

second penalty and Gwen Jorgensen had not had the crash, it would have

:24:14.:24:18.

been interesting to see these two go head to head. Stimpson is in about

:24:18.:24:25.

fourth at this stage. But the most comfortable of the runners at this

:24:25.:24:28.

stage is definitely Non Stanford. She's flying along here. Such

:24:28.:24:35.

efficient technique, nice fast turnover, very relaxed arms. Back in

:24:36.:24:43.

the field, Haug arriving with three minutes and 20 seconds deficit. Very

:24:43.:24:56.

difficult for and how -- for Haug, crossing paths with Non Stanford,

:24:56.:25:00.

knowing it is not going to be her day-to-day. Back to Non Stanford who

:25:00.:25:07.

is flying. We mentioned the 32 second ten kilometres changeover she

:25:07.:25:10.

ran earlier in the year, and she is fitter now. It will be very exciting

:25:10.:25:16.

to see minus the penalty what she is capable of running. Bearing in mind

:25:16.:25:20.

that she has recently returned from a broken arm. She broke her arm

:25:20.:25:25.

crashing in the hamburg team race. There was a sprint race on Saturday

:25:25.:25:30.

in which she finished second, and then she was part of the British

:25:30.:25:34.

team that went out to defend their world team relay title, including

:25:34.:25:40.

the Brownlee brothers, and Jodie Stimpson as well. But as she went

:25:40.:25:44.

out on the bike in hamburg she crashed, went to the medical centre,

:25:44.:25:48.

and they said there was no damage done. She continued to feel pain,

:25:48.:25:52.

and when she arrived at training, she got it checked, and it turned

:25:52.:25:56.

out it was fractured. She spent an awful lot of time in recovery. Let's

:25:56.:26:00.

see the gap, two laps to go. What is the difference here between Stanford

:26:00.:26:06.

and Sarah Groff? She has got the 15 seconds. That is what she needed.

:26:06.:26:11.

She needs to open up a gap of around 15 seconds. She can take the penalty

:26:11.:26:16.

now and slotting behind Sarah Groff at the start of the second lap, as

:26:16.:26:20.

Sarah Groff crosses the line. There is a further 14 seconds. 15 seconds

:26:20.:26:28.

do Stimpson, Hewitt and Jackson. -- to Stimpson. She obviously wants to

:26:28.:26:35.

build up a Big Brother so when she takes the 15 second she doesn't feel

:26:35.:26:39.

she has to have a group battle -- a big buffer. One down, two to go for

:26:39.:26:48.

Non Stanford as she continues quest to become champion of the world for

:26:48.:26:52.

2013 with this stop-go penalty still to take. Where is Sarah Groff? As we

:26:52.:27:01.

watch once again some of the back markers, the German who was with the

:27:01.:27:05.

leaders during the cycle, but not comfortable on the run. Samuels of

:27:05.:27:07.

New Zealand as well. Stanford is on the charge here. The

:27:07.:27:20.

gap to Sarah Groff growing all the time. It was 15 seconds at the end

:27:21.:27:26.

of the second -- first lap. They are waiting to welcome her into the

:27:26.:27:30.

penalty box when she chooses. She can take it on any one of the three

:27:30.:27:37.

laps. Interesting that we have not mentioned Helen Jenkins, the Welsh

:27:37.:27:42.

athlete, she missed the Olympic Games from being out with a knee

:27:42.:27:47.

injury. Back to Anja Knapp who did so much work for her training

:27:47.:27:52.

partner and fellow German team member, and now I think perhaps she

:27:52.:27:57.

is just taking it pretty easy around this ten kilometre course, her work

:27:57.:28:02.

done for the day. Back with Non Stanford, our leader, world champion

:28:02.:28:06.

in waiting, but still with the daunting prospect of being asked to

:28:06.:28:10.

stop and stand still and take the 15 second count. That is still to come.

:28:10.:28:16.

Her choice. She can take it on the second or third lap. She does have a

:28:16.:28:22.

chance coming now to eyeball Sarah Groff coming in the opposite

:28:22.:28:25.

direction. And she will figure that the gap is enough, at present, to

:28:25.:28:31.

maintain the lead and put her still in front after she has taken the

:28:31.:28:37.

penalty. That will be a huge boost to her confidence because it must be

:28:37.:28:41.

pretty worrying knowing she has the 15 seconds, but a big gap now, not

:28:41.:28:45.

even halfway through the course, so she has to know things are looking

:28:45.:28:51.

pretty comfortable for her. Here are the chasers, Emma Moffatt, Jackson,

:28:51.:29:00.

Jodie Stimpson taking the corner. Jodie Stimpson, such a fantastic

:29:00.:29:03.

year. She has been running so strongly. She came into Stockholm

:29:03.:29:07.

looking a bit fatigued. She had been training in altitude and sometimes

:29:07.:29:11.

it does not suit all athletes. That might be the with Jodie. -- might be

:29:11.:29:15.

the case with Jodie. Stanford might be the with Jodie. -- might be

:29:15.:29:20.

getting some shelter under the trees at the side there. Good crowds out

:29:20.:29:24.

today in Hyde Park despite the inclement weather. They have come

:29:24.:29:30.

out in force. Everybody keen to rekindle the Olympic spirit from

:29:30.:29:34.

2012, and they are all wrapped up against the chill and the rain, but

:29:34.:29:40.

there -- they are six or seven deep in places in Hyde Park. A couple of

:29:40.:29:44.

hundred thousand out for the Olympic triathlon, the men's Olympic

:29:44.:29:49.

triathlon on August seven last year, and good crowds for the women's

:29:49.:29:53.

event on August four. What a run from Non Stanford so far. Still got

:29:53.:30:01.

a penalty to take as Haug runs along with the Hungarian and Kate Roberts

:30:01.:30:04.

of South Africa, with so much work to do. The Olympics was a massive

:30:04.:30:14.

thing for triathlon, which is the fastest-growing Olympic sport that

:30:14.:30:15.

there is in the last year. There has been an increase in

:30:15.:30:24.

participation, certainly fantastic for triathlon. Anne Haug doing her

:30:24.:30:31.

level best to maintain some sort of semblance of being able to challenge

:30:31.:30:35.

for the world title, but the welcome that Non Stanford gets in transition

:30:35.:30:40.

says it all. 15 second penalty still to come. That was the gap in lap

:30:40.:30:48.

one, enough to take the penalty and emerge in first position, that she

:30:48.:30:53.

might not take it until the last possible opportunity on lap three. I

:30:53.:30:58.

will take a guess and say she will take it now, then she can go into

:30:58.:31:03.

the final lap confident she knows she has done enough. Bouncing along

:31:03.:31:09.

still. Stanford looks absolutely full of running. She has had her own

:31:09.:31:15.

issues during this race, which she has benefited from the crash and

:31:15.:31:24.

mechanical failure of raw the prerace favourite Gwen Jorgensen,

:31:24.:31:29.

and problems for Anne Haug, seizing up on those opportunities and it

:31:29.:31:32.

could well be we are looking at a British double this weekend, with

:31:32.:31:37.

Alistair and that in Brownlee battling for world domination

:31:37.:31:42.

tomorrow -- Alistair Dan Jonny Brownlee. And we have Non Stanford

:31:42.:31:50.

on this Saturday morning. Huge progress being made in the women's

:31:50.:31:55.

race. The 10k time has gone down by over one minute in the last year. A

:31:55.:32:03.

significant improvement. Really is. I would love to see Emma, Gwen

:32:03.:32:11.

Jorgensen and Stanford go head-to-head. Now, the chase group,

:32:11.:32:24.

Sarah Groff in second, a group of six including Andrea Hewitt and

:32:24.:32:28.

Jodie Stimpson. And the leader Non Stanford of Great Britain. Hurley

:32:28.:32:32.

was 15 seconds at the last official check, equating to the penalty she

:32:32.:32:39.

has yet to take and stop -- her lead was 15 seconds. After Madrid, we

:32:39.:32:45.

wondered if she could keep this place up. Very hot weather

:32:45.:32:50.

conditions there. She maintained the pace right the way through. A visual

:32:50.:32:56.

check on the time difference now between Stanford, leader, and Sarah

:32:56.:33:01.

Groff in second, and might be getting closer to 20 seconds.

:33:01.:33:09.

Stanford on her own at the front of the field. Everybody snapping away

:33:09.:33:13.

from the sidelines, getting a picture of the world champion in

:33:13.:33:18.

waiting, but still a significant event to happen with the stop-go

:33:18.:33:23.

penalty coming up soon. That camera distance seeming to close the

:33:23.:33:26.

penalty coming up soon. That camera distance, it is more than that

:33:26.:33:30.

picture would suggest. About 20 seconds or so. Stanford kick away

:33:30.:33:38.

from transition, a fearsome pace, not letting up since. Another out

:33:38.:33:47.

and back years, she will turn, and she will get a definite idea of the

:33:47.:33:49.

and back years, she will turn, and gap she has opened up, so Stanford

:33:49.:33:56.

at the turn, Sarah Groff and the others still heading in the opposite

:33:56.:34:01.

direction, and they will eyeball Non Stanford now, some enviously as she

:34:01.:34:08.

heads on this section, well clear of the field, Groff holding second in

:34:08.:34:11.

her own right and stop and six vying for the final place on the medal

:34:11.:34:20.

podium. I think Jodie is having a slightly tough day on the run.

:34:20.:34:24.

Normally a real front run runner, pushing the pace, but choosing to

:34:24.:34:30.

stick with that fact there are, about six athletes, maybe suggesting

:34:30.:34:36.

she is tired. It has been a long season, racing since back in March.

:34:36.:34:44.

Jodie finished second there, Anne Haug was first, and a long season

:34:44.:34:53.

for these athletes. Hewitt being dropped, and able to keep pace with

:34:53.:34:58.

that group. Stanford will soon get sight of Anne Haug, one half her

:34:58.:35:04.

main rivals for the World Championship title of 2013, and will

:35:04.:35:09.

see the gap she has over Anne Haug is enormous. Katie Hewison of Great

:35:09.:35:17.

Britain having a good race. Kate McIlroy of New Zealand just in

:35:17.:35:21.

front. Stanford only has the motorcycle camera for company now,

:35:21.:35:31.

plus the noisy Hyde Park Road. And Kate Roberts from South Africa, a

:35:31.:35:34.

strong runner, suggesting that Anne Haug is not running at full pace.

:35:34.:35:42.

300 metres to go until the end of lap two. The gap was 15 at the end

:35:43.:35:50.

of lap one, it has grown since then, as Stanford continues to punish her

:35:50.:36:03.

opponents here. So, that penalty still very much on her mind, and it

:36:03.:36:08.

will be tough for her, because her legs are working, but suddenly, she

:36:08.:36:13.

will have to stop and stand for 15 seconds, which will seem like 15

:36:14.:36:18.

minutes as she watches the clock, but kicking away early, sensibly,

:36:18.:36:22.

opening the gap, giving herself the time difference. We saw how it

:36:22.:36:30.

affected Jonny Brownlee last year, coming across the line absolutely

:36:30.:36:35.

spent, and it can sometimes be a shock to the system. You are all

:36:35.:36:41.

out, heart rate at around 180 plus, stop dead, it drops, then you ask it

:36:41.:36:50.

to go again. Stanford takes her punishment, a 15 second standing

:36:50.:36:53.

time, because she did not get the wet suit in the vaults, keeping

:36:53.:36:59.

moving, looking towards the timing official. Then she gets released and

:36:59.:37:06.

the tactic has paid off for Non Stanford, still in first position,

:37:06.:37:12.

having taken the 15 seconds, Non Stanford still leading the World

:37:12.:37:15.

Triathlon Series Grand Final here in London, a terrific performance so

:37:15.:37:21.

far! The crowd responding to her efforts! Brilliant! I felt that,

:37:21.:37:28.

that 15 seconds felt like a lifetime. Still has a lead of 14

:37:28.:37:38.

seconds. The hard work in the second lap in particular has paid off, a

:37:38.:37:42.

final lap to run. If she crosses in first, she will become world

:37:42.:37:48.

champion. And a little pack separating out a bit. The grimace on

:37:48.:37:55.

Jodie Stimpson's face, and Sarah Groff perhaps being reeled in,

:37:55.:38:00.

Andrea Hewitt, so consistent, but not able to go with the front fact

:38:00.:38:07.

of runners. Into the final lap and you cannot see Sarah Groff in the

:38:07.:38:11.

distance, touches Non Stanford's total domination of this 10k run so

:38:11.:38:19.

far, slightly less than 3.3 kilometres to Iran, on the final

:38:20.:38:24.

lap, and we can see how far behind Anne Haug is, -- 3.3 kilometres to

:38:24.:38:35.

run. No sign of Anne Haug, so far behind, it is really insignificant

:38:35.:38:43.

now, because it is Stanford's title for the taking. She is going to be

:38:43.:38:50.

feeling pretty good. You have to take your hat off to Anne Haug,

:38:50.:38:54.

running their with Katie Roberts from South Africa, not giving up,

:38:55.:38:59.

but just a case of finishing this race and seeing what points she can

:38:59.:39:06.

get. Starting badly for her, diving into the Serpentine, way off the

:39:06.:39:11.

pace by the end of lap one, finishing a minute and a half behind

:39:11.:39:15.

the best of the swimmers coming out of the water, failed to make a nine

:39:15.:39:23.

pact despite teaming up with Anja Knapp, generously staying back and

:39:23.:39:29.

waiting for her. -- field to make an impact. They try to make inroads to

:39:29.:39:35.

the lead, but to no avail. Championship aspirations vanishing

:39:35.:39:39.

by the second. Stanford still looks full of running as she takes that

:39:39.:39:46.

out and back and another chance to eyeball her closest rivals led by

:39:46.:39:50.

Sarah Groff, her lead appears to be diminishing over Moffatt, making a

:39:50.:39:56.

move into third position, joined on her shoulder by Aileen Reid from

:39:56.:40:01.

Arlen, Jodie Stimpson throwing away her sunglasses. Someone has a free

:40:01.:40:08.

bearing the crowd. Stimpson clearly frustrated with how things have

:40:08.:40:13.

worked out. She had a chance to win the world title, not quite panning

:40:14.:40:17.

out, and bond down to about 50 position. Andrea Hewitt, the pace

:40:17.:40:29.

was too much. -- bumped to fifth position. We are deep into the final

:40:29.:40:38.

lap, the final chapter of the World Triathlon Series for the women for

:40:38.:40:43.

2013, and it looks as if it will be a world title for Non Stanford from

:40:43.:40:53.

Wales. Ashleigh Gentle going through the picture there, her trainer was a

:40:53.:40:59.

multiple World Cup winner back in the late '90s on the ITU circuit.

:40:59.:41:08.

Moffett has been caught. Emma Moffatt with designs on second place

:41:08.:41:15.

here. Anne Haug has broken clear of Katie Roberts and opened up a little

:41:15.:41:22.

bit of daylight now. There is no way back now for Anne Haug. She cannot

even after her 15 second kind, her lead was still 14 seconds, a

Aileen Reid from Ireland tries to go with her. As Stimpson gone too fast

Stanford starts to soak up the atmosphere now. No sign of her

Trying to move herself back into the picture, into the frames, and it

looks like she is fast approaching on Emma Moffatt. Maybe she went to

LA? -- too early? Death look at the league that Stanford has. All of

not where it is about the body, it is about the mind. This has been a

tough race in tough conditions. They have everything still to play for.

Stimpson just about holding on to Aileen Reid. Jodie Stimpson might

:46:07.:46:12.

get involved in the sprint finish. Aileen Reid looks more comfortable,

but Stimpson comes again. Not letting Aileen Reid break free, but

:46:17.:46:21.

out in front, Non Stanford can taste victory now. Well inside the final

:46:22.:46:28.

kilometre. What a brilliant race for Non Stanford. The whole event has

:46:28.:46:35.

been full of drama and incident with Gwen Jorgensen's affair on the bike

outside the palace with her crash. The Germans's desperate attempt to

:46:42.:46:49.

get back in, and the wet suit violation for Non Stanford and the

:46:49.:46:52.

stop-go penalty which she took at the last moment. Into the last 500

:46:52.:46:57.

metres now, and Non Stanford is cruising to victory. Well, an

:46:57.:47:06.

outstanding performance, and we are about to witness a third British

:47:06.:47:09.

athlete to win the world Championships. Stimpson dropped by

:47:09.:47:18.

Eileen Reid, daylight between the Irish triathlete and Jodie Stimpson,

:47:18.:47:21.

and it seems to be going. She looked the more comfortable of the two and

:47:21.:47:24.

it looks like Stimpson might end up finishing in fourth, which is always

:47:24.:47:30.

the worst to finish in, because Emma Moffatt is in second, and Aileen

:47:30.:47:35.

Reid is closing in on Moffatt. Stanford moves into a sprint to

:47:35.:47:43.

round off this world Triumph leaked -- triathlon series for 2013. At

:47:43.:47:48.

last she can smile. She deserves all the applause and praise today. She

:47:48.:47:54.

can pick up the flag, the Welsh flag for Non Stanford. The sprint is over

:47:54.:47:58.

and it is just down to a lap of honour at the end of the race for

:47:58.:48:02.

Non Stanford of Great Britain. A sensational race, culminating in a

:48:02.:48:10.

magnificent victory for Non Stanford. Non Stanford is the

:48:10.:48:17.

champion of the world! Two hours and one minute and 33 seconds. And there

:48:17.:48:22.

is a sprint for second between Moffatt, who is hobbling through,

:48:22.:48:28.

and Aileen Reid of Ireland. Stimpson has been dropped to fourth. Aileen

:48:28.:48:33.

Reid takes it away from Moffatt within 50 yards of the line. She

:48:33.:48:39.

joins Stanford on the podium, and Moffatt is third. A gutsy

:48:39.:48:42.

performance yet again from Jodie Stimpson. She grimaced her way

:48:42.:48:47.

through that run. She picks up fourth position. Emma Jackson is in

:48:47.:48:56.

sixth, falling over the line, followed by Sarah Groff, who was

:48:56.:49:02.

seconds -- for so much of the race. What a finish for Non Stanford.

:49:02.:49:12.

World champion for 2013. Perhaps a slightly disappointing day for Jodie

Stimpson, but with the points she gains today, not making the podium

today, but she will make the podium in the world Championships. Stimpson

hamburg. Second place in Stockholm, all coming good. And she will be

:49:51.:49:58.

crowned as the 2013 ITU world triathlon series champion. It looked

:49:58.:50:03.

at the start as if it would all be about Haug, but it didn't quite

:50:03.:50:14.

happen. Haug And your Ganson in pole position to become world champion,

:50:14.:50:22.

but they both had issues -- Haug and Gwen Jorgensen. Confirmation of the

:50:22.:50:26.

final results. A comfortable win for Non Stanford. Aileen Reid was second

:50:26.:50:28.

for Ireland. Emma Moffatt in third. Non Stanford is the champion of the

:50:28.:50:41.

world for 2013, joined on the world triathlon series podium by Jodie

Stimpson in second, and Haug holding on for third. In third place,

back the tears it seems, coming here with a realistic prospect of

becoming champion of the world, but it didn't happen for her today.

Third place in the world triathlon series standings for 2013. Beaten

So, the national anthem rings out within earshot of Buckingham Palace.

At last, Stanford can only enjoy the moment, and she will be back to

:53:30.:53:38.

cheer on her training partners, Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee

:53:38.:53:42.

tomorrow. I cannot put it into words how I feel. I go from related to

:53:42.:53:47.

nearly crying. I could not quite believe it. It has all happened so

:53:47.:53:53.

quickly. I cannot quite believe it, the way the race panned out. I think

:53:53.:53:59.

it was about the person who were sensible and kept their head. You

:53:59.:54:05.

made it a tough watch for the fans with a penalty, and a bit tougher

:54:05.:54:08.

for yourself. When you heard about it, what went through your mind? I

:54:08.:54:16.

did Johnny Brownlee! I knew I had to go out hard, and I knew I could

:54:16.:54:22.

break the mercifully, so a 25 seconds I thought I had to take it

:54:22.:54:24.

early and get out of the penalty box seconds I thought I had to take it

:54:24.:54:28.

as quickly as possible. I had to not given the chance to get back in

:54:29.:54:30.

contact. It was hurting on the last given the chance to get back in

:54:30.:54:34.

lap so I was glad to see it when I came to the finish line. How much

:54:34.:54:39.

were you aware of the drama around you? It was really unfortunate on

:54:39.:54:44.

that corner. I heard someone go down behind me and me got feedback it was

:54:44.:54:47.

Gwen Jorgensen, and it's a shame because you do not want to have a

:54:47.:54:51.

world title come to you that way. It would have been great to have her in

:54:51.:54:55.

the run and beaten her that way. But you have to keep your wits about you

:54:55.:54:59.

on the course. It is notoriously slippery, so we were prepared for

:54:59.:55:04.

that. Aileen Reid, congratulations, how does it feel? Fantastic,

:55:04.:55:12.

surprising, amazing. What was it like to be racing out there? I

:55:12.:55:16.

wished it was a sprint distance because we had four laps on the bike

:55:16.:55:20.

and I was freezing. I was freezing, so I thought everyone else was, so

:55:20.:55:24.

just keep going and hopefully people will drop out and you have more of a

:55:24.:55:31.

chance. Jodie, huge congratulations, you are this year 's World Series

:55:31.:55:36.

runner-up, how does it feel? It's amazing. I was giving all I could

:55:36.:55:43.

give, but then second in the series, OK, I will take that. That race was

:55:43.:55:49.

so dramatic. How much information did you get about what else was

:55:49.:55:52.

going on and how much were you trying to focus on your own race in

:55:52.:55:57.

these conditions? To be honest, on the bike, it was just try to stay

:55:57.:56:01.

near the front and I properly stayed there a bit too long. Stay upright

:56:01.:56:06.

or go into the back and risk coming off. Then we know that Gwen

:56:06.:56:12.

Jorgensen came off and Non Stanford have the time penalty. On the run, I

:56:12.:56:16.

couldn't get my shoes on because my hands were so cold. But the race

:56:16.:56:20.

wasn't perfect, but it ended on a high in the end. Your best season

:56:20.:56:26.

ever, and he finished in front of a home crowd in this way. You must

:56:26.:56:32.

feel great. I am ecstatic. All of my family is here and it's brilliant. I

:56:32.:56:36.

feel great. I am ecstatic. All of my finally got to race here. I did last

:56:37.:56:42.

year, and to finish like that, it is good. Great to see those tears of

:56:42.:56:49.

joy. Congratulations. Thank you. That must be one of the toughest

:56:49.:56:53.

races you have ever had. One of the toughest days in the office so far,

:56:53.:56:57.

but I am glad I won the bronze medal. It was a really hard fight

:56:57.:57:02.

and I am more than happy. Not the perfect day, but that is sport, you

:57:02.:57:07.

never know what happens. What a dramatic and emotional end to what

:57:07.:57:11.

has been a very exciting world triathlon series for the winning

:57:11.:57:15.

this year. And this race was the perfect example of just how

:57:15.:57:19.

unpredictable this sport can be. And there is plenty more sport to look

:57:19.:57:23.

forward to this weekend. Including, of course, the men's grand frying or

:57:24.:57:29.

where the Brownlee brothers and Spain's Javier Gomez -- the grand

:57:29.:57:35.

final. Before that at 9:30am, Mo Farah will compete in the great

:57:35.:57:40.

North run, fresh from his 5000 and 10,000 metre double at the world

:57:40.:57:44.

championships. And in any -- if any of this inspires you to take part
