Welcome to another city for another world triathlon event. We are in

:00:59.:01:03.

Hamburg and it is the last one before Rio. -- Rio de Janiero. Most

:01:04.:01:08.

of the team have opted for altitude training but many of the world's

:01:09.:01:11.

Best archaeological promises to be fast and furious. That's because it

:01:12.:01:18.

is the annual festival and, looking for three in a row, the dominant

:01:19.:01:23.

force, Gwen Jorgensen of the USA. She is up against the only woman to

:01:24.:01:31.

have beaten her in a World Series race, Helen Jenkins. Spain's Mario

:01:32.:01:45.

Mola is back. And it is a welcome return for Richard Murray, after he

:01:46.:01:48.

broke his collarbone. We will hear from them later in the programme.

:01:49.:01:55.

Some great racing in store but the big news is about who is not here.

:01:56.:02:02.

Five times world champion Javier Gomez announced he would not be

:02:03.:02:06.

going to Rio de Janiero. He said he had come off his bike during a

:02:07.:02:13.

training exercise and he had broken his elbow and required surgery. With

:02:14.:02:18.

the race only 32 days away he acknowledged he would not have

:02:19.:02:22.

enough time to get to the start line fit and ready. Obviously a huge

:02:23.:02:30.

disappointment. Jonny Brownlee tweeted his sadness and

:02:31.:02:38.

disappointment that he would not be participating. It is devastating,

:02:39.:02:48.

you don't want that for any athlete. Everyone will be disappointed

:02:49.:02:52.

because you want to race the best. Javier Gomez has only one thing left

:02:53.:02:59.

to complete for his CV, he wants the Olympic title. It is bad for the

:03:00.:03:04.

Spanish team and for him. It is bad news for the triathlon. I think the

:03:05.:03:09.

Olympics will not be the same without him. I feel for him and it

:03:10.:03:15.

is bad luck, terrible timing, he's a great champion and everyone would

:03:16.:03:21.

have loved to see him in Rio. Everybody likes to see a good show.

:03:22.:03:27.

It is sad not to have him competing but with the likes of Mario and the

:03:28.:03:39.

Brownlees, we will not be short of talent, but it is always nice to

:03:40.:03:42.

have the Spanish Armada racing together. The race will not be the

:03:43.:03:53.

same but I hope to race for Spain. There is nothing you can do. You

:03:54.:04:02.

cannot compete with a broken arm. He's a strong character, he will

:04:03.:04:10.

bounce back, and other guys will be fearing him come the end of the

:04:11.:04:15.

season. We will have more reaction to that later in the programme.

:04:16.:04:16.

Let's move on to the women's race. Flora Duffy's victory in Stockholm

:04:17.:04:29.

enabled her to extend her lead against Jodie Stimpson. She is back

:04:30.:04:36.

to try and narrow the gap between them and Andrea Hewitt is in second

:04:37.:04:40.

place. With just one more race to come, Jodie Stimpson has everything

:04:41.:04:46.

to play for as she aims for her first world title.

:04:47.:04:52.

The good news as far as non-Stanson is concerned is her injury is fine.

:04:53.:05:04.

Helen Jenkins is here, beating the seemingly unbeatable Gwen Jorgensen.

:05:05.:05:13.

She is here as well so all eyes are on the two of them competing. Gwen

:05:14.:05:19.

Jorgensen is not used to this. That was the first time they had

:05:20.:05:35.

lost, are you prepared for that focus? I get asked about this, is it

:05:36.:05:45.

a psychological rematch? I don't think either of us are thinking

:05:46.:05:56.

that. It is a step in the process. I think Gwen is still the overwhelming

:05:57.:06:04.

favourite. Since the World Cup she has two series victories. I don't

:06:05.:06:09.

see myself as a major contender in this race to her but come Rio,

:06:10.:06:16.

hopefully it will be different. What are your reflections on your

:06:17.:06:24.

performance in Stockholm? I'm happy. To come away with a podium was

:06:25.:06:30.

great. I made life hard for myself and I have to work hard on the bike.

:06:31.:06:39.

To come away with another podium was a good result. One of the

:06:40.:06:48.

revelations of the Stockholm race was how well Flora Duffy ran. She

:06:49.:06:54.

comes into contention. I think she has definitely been a medal

:06:55.:06:58.

contender in my mind for a while. She ran better than we expected. We

:06:59.:07:10.

got that gap to within 45 seconds. You've got to get that realisation.

:07:11.:07:20.

It was a step towards race fitness. You learn a lot, every time you

:07:21.:07:31.

race, you learn you cannot give her any time. Is the sprint distance

:07:32.:07:41.

good? I think so, hopefully I recover from it quick. I have never

:07:42.:07:46.

got a podium on a sprint distance world Champion series. It is nice to

:07:47.:07:54.

be injured, to come and race and not have too much pressure on myself. I

:07:55.:08:07.

am joined by Gwen Jorgensen's coach and husband. How is her mindset

:08:08.:08:13.

before the race? Really good, she loves coming to Hamburg. When they

:08:14.:08:19.

announced the calendar it was one that we knew we were doing. It is

:08:20.:08:30.

all about Rio, how are you dealing with the pressure? It is still on.

:08:31.:08:34.

All these races are second or third tier. We are focusing on Rio. First

:08:35.:08:48.

time you have competed against Helen, when Gwen lost. Is there a

:08:49.:08:53.

plan to send a message to show that she is back on form? The race can be

:08:54.:09:01.

won and lost in the first 22 metres, you've got to get out as quick as

:09:02.:09:05.

possible and see where the chips have fallen. Time for race

:09:06.:09:09.

highlights. Welcome to hamburger. The tour began

:09:10.:09:23.

in Abu Dhabi before switching to the Gold Coast and then reconvened in

:09:24.:09:33.

Cape Town. It was Yokohama next before the European races began. Now

:09:34.:09:40.

we are in Hamburg. This is where the race will take place. They swim

:09:41.:09:48.

under this bridge and out of the transition area and then they raid

:09:49.:09:52.

six laps around the city centre passed the main railway station

:09:53.:09:59.

across one of the 2500 bridges that litter this beautiful city by the

:10:00.:10:16.

sea. Then there is a five K run to finish. 750 metres swim, 20 K cycle

:10:17.:10:35.

and a five K run. There is the American, looking for three in a row

:10:36.:10:40.

in Hamburg. The unstoppable Gwen Jorgensen. It will be interesting.

:10:41.:10:45.

Jodie Stimpson wears number one. I Ainhoa Murua, the oldest in the

:10:46.:11:12.

race, winning number 17. The countdown begins, the latest race of

:11:13.:11:20.

the triathlon series. They are ready to go and they are under way. It

:11:21.:11:29.

will be done and dusted inside one hour.

:11:30.:11:35.

Good afternoon to Annie Emerson. This is a very exciting field. We're

:11:36.:11:43.

missing some big names. British names have sat it out. Flora Duffy

:11:44.:11:51.

taking a rest after that phenomenal victory. What a line-up we have with

:11:52.:12:02.

Gwen Jorgensen here. The weather conditions today, warm enough out of

:12:03.:12:08.

the water but pretty chilly within. A single lap of these waters and

:12:09.:12:16.

they will go out and under the bridge towards the transition area

:12:17.:12:22.

to pick up their bikes. This field already beginning to spread. It

:12:23.:12:29.

looks like there are three little groups but don't be fooled, they

:12:30.:12:32.

will join up as they head towards the turnaround point. They are

:12:33.:12:41.

jostling for position as they head towards the turn. You can see them

:12:42.:12:50.

get stuck underneath, it can be a little nasty at times. Taking a

:12:51.:12:59.

wider line. Look at them on the inside, they will need to stop. They

:13:00.:13:05.

will go round the inflatables to keep on track.

:13:06.:13:17.

Helen Jenkins is one of the big favourites, but did not have a great

:13:18.:13:26.

swim in Stockholm. We've got to keep our eyes peeled for Helen Jenkins.

:13:27.:13:47.

Absolutely breathless today, no wind to create any choppy waves on the

:13:48.:13:50.

water. Here they come under the bridge towards the transition area,

:13:51.:13:56.

and the line under the bridge is being marked out by the trio of

:13:57.:14:02.

kayakers on the left of the screen. They go into the darkness beneath

:14:03.:14:08.

the bridge. When they return to daylight we will get a look at who

:14:09.:14:18.

is emerging first. Effortless through the water from Lucy Hall.

:14:19.:14:26.

Getting warmly welcomed by the supporters dangling their feet over

:14:27.:14:29.

the sides and watching at close quarters the tail end of the first

:14:30.:14:33.

stage of this triathlon. What a welcome they are getting.

:14:34.:14:40.

There is the exit. After 9.5 minutes, Lucy Hall will claim the

:14:41.:14:50.

ramp ahead of everybody else and prepare for transition. Lively start

:14:51.:14:51.

in Hamburg. Hall out of the water. It is Lucy Hall then Anastasia

:14:52.:15:00.

Abrosimova. Helen Jenkins comes out in amongst

:15:01.:15:30.

that first Group. They arrive at their bikes in transition and now

:15:31.:15:35.

the multitasking continues. Glasses on, out of the wet suit, closely

:15:36.:15:41.

followed by the best in the world, Gwen Jorgensen, who does the same. A

:15:42.:15:45.

steely look in the eyes of the American as she focuses on stage

:15:46.:15:49.

two. Good in and out of the transition area.

:15:50.:15:56.

The wet suit is in the plastic box and away they go. We are likely to

:15:57.:16:02.

get a big group forming at the start of the cycle on lap one. We could

:16:03.:16:08.

see a group forming of a dozen or more. They are quite well spread as

:16:09.:16:16.

they begin to cycle around the city of Hamburg. Lucy Hall looking over

:16:17.:16:23.

her shoulder to see who is with her. This is very much her race. I think

:16:24.:16:28.

she will work hard and see what you can do. Helen Jenkins and Jodie

:16:29.:16:31.

Stimpson behind her but I think today Lucy Hall will be working for

:16:32.:16:36.

herself. It is technical which suits her good cycling skills. A huge

:16:37.:16:43.

pack, 20 or 25 strong, and we think this will contain Jodie Stimpson and

:16:44.:16:47.

Jenkins from Great Britain. There might be some hard work going on

:16:48.:16:51.

within this group to try and bridge the chase group of about eight and

:16:52.:16:59.

then hopefully as the race unfolds, the leading group, which is again a

:17:00.:17:06.

total of eight. Zaferes, the American, up

:17:07.:17:16.

alongside Klamer as they get towards the end of lap run, as well as

:17:17.:17:23.

Carolyn routine you. We will have the names for you. The graphic for

:17:24.:17:29.

you will give you the exact eight riders involved.

:17:30.:17:45.

Charlotte McShane has got work to do. This pack is well placed, with

:17:46.:18:10.

just eight athletes, to work really well and keep pushing the pace and

:18:11.:18:14.

to stay away from the chase pack. Because of the nature of the cause,

:18:15.:18:18.

it is hard to make up time when you are in a big pack. Helen Jenkins is

:18:19.:18:24.

more than 20 seconds off the pace. This is a huge group of about 30. We

:18:25.:18:30.

think this is the Helen Jenkins and Jodie Stimpson group. We think they

:18:31.:18:38.

are both in this pack. The lead group setting a cracking pace in the

:18:39.:18:42.

early stages here. They have seized the initiative and as they head

:18:43.:18:48.

towards the end of the second lap of six, each lap consisting of a

:18:49.:18:53.

distance of three and one third kilometres, so we have one group who

:18:54.:18:59.

have merged to form this peleton chasing down the front eight. Not a

:19:00.:19:06.

satisfying position to be in in terms of getting the job done in

:19:07.:19:11.

such a large group. Very difficult to work well together. You need the

:19:12.:19:15.

likes of Jodie Stimpson and Helen Jenkins up there. Helen Jenkins at

:19:16.:19:19.

the top of our picture making her way to the top. It is important to

:19:20.:19:23.

have some kind of lead at the front and ignore what is happening behind

:19:24.:19:27.

you. Don't worry about those that don't want to work. Just keep

:19:28.:19:33.

working and find three or four athletes who want to work well

:19:34.:19:37.

together. This pack contains Rachel Klamer and Lucy Hall and Marie Rabi.

:19:38.:19:42.

Decent athletes in this pack and they look to be working well as a

:19:43.:19:48.

team. Lots of noise and another warm welcome at the end of the third lap.

:19:49.:19:54.

It is half distance on the bike. The group of seven with Rachel climate

:19:55.:19:57.

now leading for the Netherlands, coming through, and what a welcome!

:19:58.:20:01.

-- Rachel Klamer. Natalie Van Coevorden went

:20:02.:20:14.

backwards, from lead group to chase group. We will see meanwhile if this

:20:15.:20:21.

massive pack has managed to reduce the time deficit. Last time we got

:20:22.:20:25.

an official time they'd lap of a 31 second deficit. -- made lap. It has

:20:26.:20:35.

grown to 33 seconds as the chase pack come through transition. You

:20:36.:20:41.

can see Helen Jenkins's face looking pretty frantic on the front. She

:20:42.:20:45.

will not want to be hanging around. I can't imagine at the beginning of

:20:46.:20:48.

this race that she thought she would find herself in the second pack,

:20:49.:20:53.

like in Stockholm. This group of seven has really taken advantage of

:20:54.:20:57.

their really good swimming and excellent transition. The ability to

:20:58.:21:01.

get away. Lucy Hall very much featuring in the breakaway at the

:21:02.:21:07.

start of the cycle stage. Katie Zaferes is on the left with a

:21:08.:21:12.

determined look on her face. The last six kilometres or so to ride

:21:13.:21:17.

and the pace has been raised even further, as encouragement is shouted

:21:18.:21:22.

from the streets of Hamburg. You can see the geography of it all. The

:21:23.:21:26.

blue area in front of the magnificent City Hall, that is the

:21:27.:21:31.

transition area. That City Hall opened in 1897, 17,000 square

:21:32.:21:39.

metres. There is the big favourite on the left of your screen, Gwen

:21:40.:21:44.

Jorgensen from the United States of America, who if she wins to day will

:21:45.:21:49.

be on the top step of the podium for the 18th occasion in the World

:21:50.:21:53.

Triathlon Series racers. What a phenomenal competitor she is. One

:21:54.:21:57.

lap to go. They take the bell and the front group of seven have come

:21:58.:22:04.

through with an advantage of more than 40 seconds over the leaders. We

:22:05.:22:10.

will expect things to happen over the final cirque eight of 3.3

:22:11.:22:15.

kilometres. Those in the chase group, if they want to get involved,

:22:16.:22:22.

will have to get involved now. Marie Rabi from South Africa taking the

:22:23.:22:25.

lead as they come round this sweeping bend. Katie Zaferes on her

:22:26.:22:31.

wheels, secretly pretty happy with the way this race has turned out.

:22:32.:22:37.

She needed a confidence boost ahead of Rio. 43 seconds now. Looking at

:22:38.:22:44.

this group, seven still. The pedigree possibly comes from Zaferes

:22:45.:22:49.

of the USA. We will see who can go with her. And then we will see from

:22:50.:22:55.

this pack which contains some very strong triathletes, Helen Jenkins

:22:56.:22:57.

and Jodie Stimpson from Great Britain of course, but most notably

:22:58.:23:01.

Gwen Jorgensen from the USA, who will not be fazed by a deficit of 45

:23:02.:23:07.

seconds. She will still believe she can make that up. Whether she can go

:23:08.:23:11.

on to win, I don't know, but she can certainly climb through the field

:23:12.:23:15.

and put pressure on the leaders. Jodie Stimpson has sensibly made her

:23:16.:23:19.

way to the front. She doesn't want to be bouncing and barging with

:23:20.:23:22.

other competitors as she comes into transition at the end of the 20

:23:23.:23:26.

kilometres ride. She wants a clean run in so she has forced her way to

:23:27.:23:31.

the head of the field. India Lee right at the back. The British

:23:32.:23:36.

athletes topping and tailing this chase group. It will be interesting

:23:37.:23:42.

to see who goes in and out of transition quickly. Back to the

:23:43.:23:47.

field, the final lap on the bike is nearly over. Lucy Hall reaches down

:23:48.:23:50.

to remove her right foot from the shoe and then her left foot rests on

:23:51.:23:55.

top. She looks over to make sure she has daylight between herself and the

:23:56.:24:00.

rest of them. Everybody's feet on top of the pedals now as they come

:24:01.:24:03.

into transition for the second time, for the change from likely to

:24:04.:24:09.

running. The dismount line marked with the redline and red flag and in

:24:10.:24:16.

they come. Rachel Klamer grabs the saddle. Marie Rabi loses control and

:24:17.:24:21.

bangs her legs. Looking for their running shoes. They need to make

:24:22.:24:25.

sure that the cycle helmets go in the box as well. Zaferes is further

:24:26.:24:30.

up transition. Nice clean entry for Zaferes. The right she went on and

:24:31.:24:39.

the left and she is away. Meanwhile, behind, further down the road, Jodie

:24:40.:24:44.

Stimpson is out of the saddle. Gwen Jorgensen has joined at the front of

:24:45.:24:49.

the field. Stimpson and Jenkinson have positioned themselves well.

:24:50.:24:55.

They will be looking for an explosive getaway. Jodie Stimpson on

:24:56.:25:02.

the right and Jenkins on the left of screen. But they go up the corporate

:25:03.:25:06.

looking for their spot in transition. Jenkins nearly lost

:25:07.:25:11.

control of her bike. Stimpson is the highest ranked triathlete in the

:25:12.:25:16.

field today, wearing number one. She arrives at her position. Nothing

:25:17.:25:20.

wrong with this transition so far for Jodie Stimpson. One of the

:25:21.:25:24.

German athletes is in and out and away. They get all the equipment

:25:25.:25:28.

together. Helen Jenkins is on her way. She is looking for speed right

:25:29.:25:35.

from the start. You can bet your bottom dollar that Gwen Jorgensen

:25:36.:25:39.

will not be far behind. Away they go, the chase pack, chasing the

:25:40.:25:42.

leaders, but Gwen Jorgensen right at the back. She does tend to be fairly

:25:43.:25:49.

relaxed in the transitions. She did lose a lot of time. I don't know if

:25:50.:25:53.

anything happened that we missed in our pictures. That is odd for her.

:25:54.:25:57.

Something must have happened for her coming into transition. She is

:25:58.:26:01.

normally relaxed because she can afford to be but giving them so much

:26:02.:26:04.

time when she was 45 seconds down on the main pack, I don't think that

:26:05.:26:10.

was something she chose to do. Jenkins is coming and you can see

:26:11.:26:16.

her dark glasses. She is three or four faces behind Gwen Jorgensen,

:26:17.:26:20.

but she looks like she is full of running yet again. Klamer and

:26:21.:26:25.

Zaferes have pulled away from that second group that were with them on

:26:26.:26:31.

the bike. Several athletes have dropped behind and Zaferes and

:26:32.:26:34.

Klamer are pushing the pace but have they done enough to stay away from

:26:35.:26:39.

Gwen Jorgensen? Gwen Jorgensen has left everybody except Jodie Stimpson

:26:40.:26:44.

behind, as she slices her way through the field. 47 seconds

:26:45.:26:51.

behind. Zaferes and Klamer in front. The gap to Stimpson and Gwen

:26:52.:26:55.

Jorgensen 47 seconds. It is only a five kilometre race and it might be

:26:56.:26:59.

too much for Gwen Jorgensen today. She is giving it her very best shot.

:27:00.:27:05.

40 seconds, that is the gap to Gwen Jorgensen. She has taken seven

:27:06.:27:09.

seconds out of the lead in the last kilometre or so. Anastasia

:27:10.:27:17.

Abrosimova moved into third position. Lucy Hall bravely holding

:27:18.:27:24.

on to fifth and Gwen Jorgensen comes into view, clear of Jodie Stimpson

:27:25.:27:29.

now. She can sense an opportunity to pick them off one by one as she

:27:30.:27:35.

tries to claw her way back into contention, looking for her 18th

:27:36.:27:40.

World Triathlon Series race and her third successive victory in Hamburg.

:27:41.:27:45.

But she has got an awful lot to do. They will take the bell. It has been

:27:46.:27:50.

an explosive first lap from Zaferes and Klamer as they hit transition.

:27:51.:27:55.

Next time they come through here, it will be towards the finishing line.

:27:56.:28:01.

2.5 kilometres to go. The gap to Gwen Jorgensen, the potential threat

:28:02.:28:07.

to success today for Zaferes and Klamer, was 40 seconds last time we

:28:08.:28:12.

looked at the clock. It could be down to closer to 30 seconds now.

:28:13.:28:19.

Gwen Jorgensen is in transition. She is 32 seconds off the pace. Gwen

:28:20.:28:24.

Jorgensen is getting the job done again. 47 seconds, then 40 seconds,

:28:25.:28:30.

next time we stopped the clock it was 32 seconds. She eats her way up

:28:31.:28:36.

through the field. Katie Zaferes has moved clear of Rachel Klamer at the

:28:37.:28:40.

front of the field and Klamer's shoulders are beginning to rock and

:28:41.:28:44.

roll as she digs deep, trying to keep tabs on Zaferes, as she has a

:28:45.:28:53.

very relaxed way about and is moving clear of Klamer. What a wonderful

:28:54.:28:57.

position do two athletes find themselves in. The phenomenal year

:28:58.:29:03.

that Zaferes had in 2015, her first serious year of the World Triathlon

:29:04.:29:08.

Series, and on the podium six times. She got six second places but she

:29:09.:29:12.

never made the top of the podium. Klamer has never been on the podium

:29:13.:29:17.

in the World Triathlon Series, so both of these athletes in new

:29:18.:29:21.

territory at the moment. Gwen Jorgensen is into a podium position.

:29:22.:29:28.

Lucy Hall is dropping back. Jodie Stimpson is slowly but surely making

:29:29.:29:32.

her way up through the field. Helen Jenkins is a bit further off the

:29:33.:29:37.

pace. You can see her distinctive running style, upright, head back,

:29:38.:29:42.

on the right of your screen. Jenkins will do well to finish in the top

:29:43.:29:46.

ten this afternoon in Hamburg. Look at the speed at which Gwen Jorgensen

:29:47.:29:54.

is travelling across the tarmac. Further time taken out of Zaferes's

:29:55.:30:01.

lead, 27 seconds now. Klamer digging deep into her reserves of stamina.

:30:02.:30:06.

Looking over, she knows that Gwen Jorgensen is looming large but it is

:30:07.:30:10.

a sprint distance and Gwen Jorgensen is running out of wrote to do any

:30:11.:30:15.

further damage. She has had a magnificent run, but it will not be

:30:16.:30:21.

an 18th triathlon when for Gwen Jorgensen barring some kind of

:30:22.:30:25.

last-gasp problem for Zaferes and Klamer. Incredible for these

:30:26.:30:35.

athletes going to Rio. Zaferes has not had an easy year, that is for

:30:36.:30:40.

sure, and to beat Gwen Jorgensen makes it even more special.

:30:41.:30:47.

Gwen Jorgensen has run up to third position and it has almost become a

:30:48.:30:53.

sprint. She looks absolutely desperate to close the gap. Just not

:30:54.:31:03.

enough. Katie Zaferes brews up another gear. She wants to make

:31:04.:31:09.

absolutely sure of this. She had the carpet, and what a pace to finish.

:31:10.:31:17.

She sprints home for her first victory. Katie Zaferes wins in

:31:18.:31:28.

Hamburg. What a race. She is on the podium second. What a breathtaking

:31:29.:31:37.

performance from the magnificent Gwen Jorgensen, who was way off the

:31:38.:31:50.

pace. Two Americans on the podium. The best of the athletes is Jodie

:31:51.:32:01.

Stimpson, who could not match Gwen Jorgensen for speed. She holds on.

:32:02.:32:11.

She will be followed by Anastasia Abrosimova of Russia. Laura

:32:12.:32:21.

Lindemann is the best of the Germans. Victory in Hamburg for

:32:22.:32:37.

Katie Zaferes. Jodie Stimpson was the best of the British. Helen

:32:38.:32:45.

Jenkins finished 14th, Lucy Hall finished 20th. Here are the current

:32:46.:32:50.

standings. Flora Duffy was never under threat in first but Jodie

:32:51.:32:53.

Stimpson has reinforced her position. Discuss your emotions with

:32:54.:33:06.

me. Excited, this has not gone as well as last year. Today, I raced

:33:07.:33:11.

like I knew I could and it was awesome to see the reward. Plu-mac

:33:12.:33:18.

I'm so happy, I was speaking to my boyfriend, and I said one day I want

:33:19.:33:24.

to be on the podium, and I did. Today must be that race. You had

:33:25.:33:29.

your training partner with you. S it was so awesome to do it with a

:33:30.:33:34.

training partner. I have a team-mate on the other side. It is a full team

:33:35.:33:38.

podium. Tell us about the race from your perspective. It started out

:33:39.:33:45.

with a swim when I was not in front back. I could tell I was not where I

:33:46.:33:50.

wanted to be. I exited the water and was not in the front pack. When

:33:51.:33:55.

you're not in it, people say you cannot win it in the swim but it is

:33:56.:34:00.

where you can lose it. In terms of T2, you came out of that. Bit

:34:01.:34:09.

further towards the last lap? Obviously should have been. The

:34:10.:34:13.

positive takeaway is there is always room for improvement. S it was

:34:14.:34:21.

pretty full on. I tried to go with Gwen, lasted a little bit, it was

:34:22.:34:27.

fun trying to hang onto her. Then it was just about trying to hold on, to

:34:28.:34:33.

be honest. We discussed the sprint race not playing to your forte.

:34:34.:34:38.

Explain how it was. I'm keeping up my record of bad sprint races. I did

:34:39.:34:42.

not have a good day and I fell flat but I give it everything out there

:34:43.:34:46.

and that is where it is. It is another step in training.

:34:47.:34:49.

Disappointing not to have a good race but I give it everything. More

:34:50.:34:55.

points towards the rankings. Definitely. Obviously, Stockholm was

:34:56.:35:01.

a huge disappointment. I'm in good shape and I've still not had the

:35:02.:35:06.

race I can say, thumbs up, I am proud of that. I've got two more

:35:07.:35:17.

chances to get that ideal race. Before we move on in Hamburg,

:35:18.:35:25.

triathlete news for the Paralympics, Britain will be the most represented

:35:26.:35:29.

nation in Rio. The strongest event will be the women's PD four. The

:35:30.:35:35.

double world champion will be joined by two former world champions.

:35:36.:35:41.

Alison Patrick and he's all Smith will line up alongside Melissa Reid

:35:42.:35:49.

and Michael Walters. Ryan Taylor will be very tough to beat in the

:35:50.:36:02.

men's PT to. Making up the 11 is Joe Townsend and Phil Hogg. Strong

:36:03.:36:12.

British team as para triathlon makes the debut. The Brownlee Brothers

:36:13.:36:23.

will have called on their mind in the Olympics, and the withdrawal of

:36:24.:36:28.

Javier Gomez will help with that, but many believe that his

:36:29.:36:36.

team-mates, Mario Mola, carried as much a threat. Mario Mola takes the

:36:37.:36:45.

gold medal. How much confidence that you get when you beat Javier Gomez

:36:46.:36:53.

in the final? Chicago was definitely one of the best races I've done, not

:36:54.:36:56.

only because of running faster but also been consistent on the bike, if

:36:57.:37:02.

you want to be racing with the very best you've got to be doing this,

:37:03.:37:10.

and I achieved that, then I think the ten K, knowing that I could be

:37:11.:37:18.

the world champion, it was a great race. I got a great feeling from the

:37:19.:37:26.

end of the race. In the last two years, they've been very good for

:37:27.:37:30.

me, I've been working on improving, that is what we look for, and I knew

:37:31.:37:34.

that it was different this year because of having the Olympic Games.

:37:35.:37:43.

I thought I might as well give it a try and I have been working for it.

:37:44.:37:50.

You talked about Javier Gomez very fondly and you have a great respect

:37:51.:37:53.

for him. I was sad argue that he will not be there? It was sad, in a

:37:54.:38:01.

big race you want to have the best racers and we know how focused on

:38:02.:38:05.

professional he is. The only gold medal he is missing is the Olympic,

:38:06.:38:10.

not having the opportunity it is very sad and really unfair but at

:38:11.:38:17.

sport we are exposed to this and we hope he recovers soon and I'm sure

:38:18.:38:21.

he will be racing strongly soon. The races UMIST Saab Alistair Brownlee

:38:22.:38:27.

find his form. What have you made of what he's been doing in the last two

:38:28.:38:34.

races? When they are focused and trading well they are very hard to

:38:35.:38:44.

beat and we know they have two medals, experience, we are so

:38:45.:38:50.

talented and all you can do is focus your control. Talk about Hamburg.

:38:51.:38:59.

What are you looking to achieve? It is another opportunity to get

:39:00.:39:07.

something for the World Championships, Fernando is leading

:39:08.:39:11.

the world so it is great for Spain to have athletes trying to cover the

:39:12.:39:18.

goal. Thank you, good luck. Thank you so much.

:39:19.:39:29.

Mario Mola is back after a break. The man next to me is back after a

:39:30.:39:35.

little break of his collarbone. Richard, thank you for speaking to

:39:36.:39:39.

us. What were your emotions after you knew you drag yourself badly?

:39:40.:39:43.

The process was to get back on the bike but when I did that I realised

:39:44.:39:49.

something was seriously wrong. I thought the collarbone was gone

:39:50.:39:53.

immediately. It has been a long recovery process but I'm glad to be

:39:54.:39:58.

back. How is your shape? Pretty good. 85% back. There is a race to

:39:59.:40:07.

see where might this is. Leaving you can get back to top shape for Rio? I

:40:08.:40:18.

think so. And good memories of Hamburg, your first World Series

:40:19.:40:22.

victory here? Yes, quite a coincidence, my girlfriend came

:40:23.:40:28.

second in this event, so we both got our first podium is here. Good luck

:40:29.:40:34.

for today. We are going racing very shortly but first, here are the

:40:35.:40:35.

rankings. Jonny Brownlee narrowed the gap to

:40:36.:40:49.

the top two. A strong performance from the Spanish racers would see

:40:50.:40:54.

that widened. Time for the last World Series

:40:55.:41:06.

action before a Rio. Here is the men's race.

:41:07.:41:12.

He was the start list for the triathlon.

:41:13.:41:18.

The final countdown for the start of the sprint triathlon. They are under

:41:19.:41:49.

way. Fast and furious start. The better swimmers are looking for the

:41:50.:41:53.

clean water ahead. We will keep an eye out for Henry Schuman. Inviting

:41:54.:42:14.

conditions with such flat water. This is a sprint distance, if you're

:42:15.:42:17.

going to get any sort of gap year going to push really hard in the

:42:18.:42:23.

swim. The Brownlee Brothers are not here.

:42:24.:42:30.

There are some great swimmers. We will expect to see there at the

:42:31.:42:44.

front of the swim. Tommy Zaferes leads the way. He is the husband of

:42:45.:42:50.

Katie Zaferes who won the women's race earlier. Clearly motivated by

:42:51.:42:55.

his wife's success earlier in the day and he is setting a cracking

:42:56.:42:59.

pace. But now the troubles begin for those that get trapped on the

:43:00.:43:05.

inside. They can have their swim curtailed and stalled as they bump

:43:06.:43:10.

shoulders and bang heads with opposing swimmers in the whirlpool

:43:11.:43:16.

that occurs during these tight turns. It is not exactly who we were

:43:17.:43:31.

expecting. Tommy Zaferes is well on the way as others scramble for

:43:32.:43:43.

position. That is bad play if I've ever seen it. I sometimes wonder

:43:44.:43:51.

whether the officials need to look at these situations are little more

:43:52.:43:56.

carefully because quite often it is unnecessary. It is very tricky when

:43:57.:44:02.

you're out there, it is very hard to see where you're going and sometimes

:44:03.:44:10.

it is just a fight of strength. We saw the athlete go under there but

:44:11.:44:15.

he did come back and carried on swimming. Tommy Zaferes was the

:44:16.:44:23.

early leader from the water. The South African has closed the gap and

:44:24.:44:27.

he might be forcing the pace. They will go under the bridge and emerge

:44:28.:44:30.

through the darkness on the other side. This ramp will allow them to

:44:31.:44:43.

excellent water quickly. They will be removing the wet suit as they run

:44:44.:44:49.

on the way to where the bikes are parked. There will be six laps of

:44:50.:44:56.

3.3 kilometres each time. The last 140 metres in the water and then the

:44:57.:45:04.

action will really move up the pace in Hamburg. Now they get the warm

:45:05.:45:15.

welcome from the enthusiastic, well educated crowd. They love triathlon

:45:16.:45:19.

in Hamburg and this is a firm feature in the circuit and the

:45:20.:45:25.

Hamburg sporting calendar. Warm reception for all the athletes as

:45:26.:45:29.

they swim the final few metres here in Germany's second-largest city.

:45:30.:45:40.

Who will be first out and get bragging rights at the end of the

:45:41.:45:47.

swim? It was Tommy is a at the end of the early stages.

:45:48.:45:59.

-- Tommy Zaferes. Here they come. It was Henri Schoeman coming out first.

:46:00.:46:34.

Mario Mola in 13th position, but not far from the leading group, so a

:46:35.:46:44.

good start for him. The rest coming out in dribs and drabs. Henri

:46:45.:46:48.

Schoeman in his position and Mario Mola comes alongside him. He puts on

:46:49.:46:52.

his cycle helmet and tries to leave everything neat and tidy. She was

:46:53.:46:56.

already attached to the pedals and that was a good transition for Mola,

:46:57.:47:01.

only half a dozen seconds behind Henri Schoeman, who was quickest out

:47:02.:47:09.

of the water. Adam Barrett turn out as well. A good, strong swim for

:47:10.:47:17.

him. -- Adam Bowden. We could have a huge group forming at the front of

:47:18.:47:19.

the field. Aurelien Raphael is already looking

:47:20.:47:33.

slightly displeased with something. Shaking his head and waving his

:47:34.:47:37.

arms. He has been doing the work so far and he wants to share the

:47:38.:47:48.

workload. That offer is gladly accepted by Jonas Schomburg, who

:47:49.:47:58.

comes through. Aurelio pretty disappointed. He is used to getting

:47:59.:48:01.

out of the water with the Brownlee brothers and when they go, they

:48:02.:48:05.

really go. But this is looking scrappy. You have got to work those

:48:06.:48:10.

first few kilometres very hard, giving 100% if you are going to have

:48:11.:48:21.

any chance of JCB athletes. The -- of chasing the athletes. These are

:48:22.:48:28.

the positions after the swim. Marten Van Riel is taking his chair turn.

:48:29.:48:43.

Looking to inject some pace and he wants some company if he is going to

:48:44.:48:52.

form a breakaway group, Ben Kanute. The skies are looking grey and

:48:53.:48:56.

threatening. This could be dry to start the cycle stage and wet to

:48:57.:49:01.

finish if the heavens open. Very difficult for some of the athletes

:49:02.:49:04.

to know what to do in this situation. Richard Murray has made

:49:05.:49:09.

the front pack and so has Mario Mola, the two fastest guys on foot

:49:10.:49:15.

and it is difficult to know what to do tactically. The only thing you

:49:16.:49:20.

can do is get a break. With Richard Murray on your tail, that will not

:49:21.:49:26.

be easy. A group of about 35 forcing the pace. We have a lone breakaway

:49:27.:49:30.

rider and we think it is Ben Kanute from the USA. He has opened up a gap

:49:31.:49:37.

of two or three seconds over one of the Australians who is trying to go

:49:38.:49:45.

with him now. This was Ben Kanute's breakaway. It didn't get any

:49:46.:49:49.

response, having offered the invitation to others to join in the

:49:50.:49:54.

fun at the front. He has some company now, joined by Eireann

:49:55.:50:01.

royal, but then the gap shortens to Aurelio and Raphael. -- Aaron Royle.

:50:02.:50:13.

These guys are spread out 200 metres on the streets of Hamburg as they

:50:14.:50:18.

get towards the end of lap one. The leader coming into transition is

:50:19.:50:21.

Aaron Royle from Australia with Ben Kanute of the USA right behind him.

:50:22.:50:26.

We know Adam Bowden is in this group but we will get an official look at

:50:27.:50:28.

the full list. Tommy is a Faroes had a good swim

:50:29.:50:44.

and he is ninth at the moment. -- Tommy Zaferes.

:50:45.:50:56.

Two of the best runners in the field, Mario Mola of Spain, and

:50:57.:51:06.

Richard Murray of South Africa, they are sharing leadership of this race.

:51:07.:51:19.

Coming through is the Japanese team, who are represented very well in

:51:20.:51:23.

both races today. As they bunched together, the conditions are looking

:51:24.:51:35.

more misty. There is a forecast for a light rain this afternoon but the

:51:36.:51:39.

clouds overhead look more menacing than light rain and we will see what

:51:40.:51:48.

unfolds with the weather. They are reduced to a snails pace, and then

:51:49.:51:52.

out of the saddle and accelerating away for the next stage of this race

:51:53.:52:01.

around the streets of Hamburg. Ben Kanute once again, the American who

:52:02.:52:05.

had a mini break earlier in the race. He is trying it on again. He

:52:06.:52:10.

has dragged a couple of Australians along with him this time. Ryan

:52:11.:52:15.

Bailie number seven, and number 16, Aaron Royle, joining in as well. The

:52:16.:52:23.

three of them trying to take the race by the scruff of the neck at

:52:24.:52:29.

the front. The problem here in this race is that it is very difficult to

:52:30.:52:35.

get away because there are so many athletes. As soon as you get

:52:36.:52:40.

momentum up, you are stopping to take a corner, and it gives the

:52:41.:52:45.

other athletes chance to catch up. It will be difficult to instigate

:52:46.:52:49.

some sort of breakaway here. Richard Murray has hit the wrong box with

:52:50.:52:53.

his swimming caps. Is 22 number should have gone next door in the

:52:54.:52:57.

white plastic box to the left, and that may well have caused a stop

:52:58.:53:02.

start penalty for Richard Murray. The bowlers are -- the umbrellas are

:53:03.:53:13.

coming up and the road surface will start to get slip. Rear wheels

:53:14.:53:18.

skidding out and a couple of close calls. Not the last incident we will

:53:19.:53:24.

see during the bike leg. The rain adds a different dimension to the

:53:25.:53:29.

second half of this cycle leg in Hamburg. Definitely not what the

:53:30.:53:34.

athletes wanted. I have mentioned this before. The athletes going to

:53:35.:53:38.

Rio will not want to take any risks today. Halfway through the bike leg,

:53:39.:53:46.

soft and good grip and traction on the blue carpet, but when they head

:53:47.:53:50.

into the streets of the city, it will be a different story, as the

:53:51.:53:56.

rainfall gets heavier in Hamburg. Richard Murray coming through

:53:57.:54:01.

transition and he has achieved a ten second penalty as a result of the

:54:02.:54:09.

equipment infringement. Ryan Fisher of Australia taking this race are

:54:10.:54:12.

now. He fancies his chances. He thinks if he can break away... He

:54:13.:54:19.

might have been watching Flora Duffy doing similar in recent weeks in the

:54:20.:54:25.

women's races around the world. The never 12 from Australia, Ryan

:54:26.:54:30.

Fisher, has got himself a reasonable gap in lap four. He has had form in

:54:31.:54:38.

the past, winning a World Cup race in 2013. The World Cup race is

:54:39.:54:43.

slightly lower tier that the World Triathlon Series... Two men down!

:54:44.:54:49.

One of them is Hernandez from the Spanish Olympic team and Zaferes

:54:50.:54:55.

getting involved. Dmitry Polyanskiy also on the deck. Hernandez and his

:54:56.:55:02.

sunglasses are having problems. He has taken his Olympic place with the

:55:03.:55:07.

withdrawal of Javier Gomez Noya who had to withdraw following a bike

:55:08.:55:13.

crash, ironically. And the beneficiary of that is on the deck

:55:14.:55:18.

himself. We can see it again here. It was one down and then the domino

:55:19.:55:26.

effect. Hernandez hit the tarmac quite hard and Adam Bowden taking

:55:27.:55:32.

evasive action. Another break. None of them has been decisive yet. Ben

:55:33.:55:38.

Kanute and Andreas Schilling having a pop at the front to see if they

:55:39.:55:44.

can do some damage. Deep into the fifth lap. Next time they hit

:55:45.:55:51.

transition, they will take the bell. 39.6 kilometres per hour across the

:55:52.:55:58.

road surface in Hamburg. They don't want to let Andreas Schilling get

:55:59.:56:01.

away because looking at his fourth-place finish in Stockholm, he

:56:02.:56:07.

can run. Mario Mola can run down anyone, we know. He has the fastest

:56:08.:56:12.

running time over anyone in the sport over ten kilometres and he

:56:13.:56:15.

can't be far off on the sprint distance either. They are not

:56:16.:56:21.

willing to take risks over the wet corners today. This group is looking

:56:22.:56:29.

courses. Know Adam Bowden in this group. He looked steady on the

:56:30.:56:34.

corners. It looks like he has dropped off. Almost a collision

:56:35.:56:41.

between a Dane and the American there and an apology from Andreas

:56:42.:56:45.

Schilling, who took his eyes off the ball and was looking over the wrong

:56:46.:56:52.

shoulder. Mario Mola on the right, the Spaniard to is highly fancied to

:56:53.:56:58.

win this race today. Can anyone match him when he parks his bike and

:56:59.:57:03.

starts off on the 5000 kilometre run? One more to come on the bike.

:57:04.:57:11.

Ben Kanute and Andreas Schilling a bit ahead of the rest. Ben Kanute

:57:12.:57:17.

and Andreas Schilling have been joined by Marten Van Riel of

:57:18.:57:22.

Belgium. We have a 3-way breakaway here. Not significant. The others

:57:23.:57:28.

are perfectly able to close them down with under three kilometres to

:57:29.:57:37.

ride. At this point in the race, I feel like the time that you can gain

:57:38.:57:41.

in three kilometres will be so minute, so is it worth the risks you

:57:42.:57:46.

can take? I am not saying sit back just be careful because the roads

:57:47.:57:51.

right now. With transition approaching and the end of the bike

:57:52.:57:55.

leg, Mario Mola is dictating the speed of the race. He could be first

:57:56.:58:01.

in and potentially first-out of transition. He could kick away from

:58:02.:58:07.

the rest of the field in the early stages of the 5000 metre run which

:58:08.:58:10.

will conclude this sprint distance triathlon. Murray and Mola are

:58:11.:58:17.

together, shoulder to shoulder, as the two men reached down and start

:58:18.:58:21.

to prepare their shoes and feet. Mario Mola does anyway, preparing

:58:22.:58:27.

for the arrival in transition. Transition is just ahead. They go

:58:28.:58:32.

under the arch. A couple more turns and they will see their final

:58:33.:58:37.

destination on two wheels, and we will be happy to see the back of the

:58:38.:58:41.

wet streets of Hamburg on their bikes. Murray takes it on, of South

:58:42.:58:48.

Africa, then Mola of Spain, and synchronised arrival in transition

:58:49.:58:52.

between the two training partners. Murray arrives in the area that

:58:53.:58:56.

caused consternation in this race. He will find out about his stop-go

:58:57.:59:01.

penalty now having seen he has put his equipment in the wrong place. A

:59:02.:59:05.

fairly basic error and he will not want to repeat that in Rio. Good

:59:06.:59:11.

transition from Mario Mola. He picks up the familiar white visor and hits

:59:12.:59:15.

the front. Richard Murray was first to emerge, quickest of the lot

:59:16.:59:23.

leaving transition. What a transition for the South African.

:59:24.:59:25.

Everything has gone right so far for the Spaniard who has managed to

:59:26.:59:29.

close the gap on Richard Murray. With the speed that Richard Murray

:59:30.:59:33.

ran out of transition, I wonder if he realised he had that ten second

:59:34.:59:38.

penalty because he flew out there, knowing he had to gain time wherever

:59:39.:59:42.

he could. He has the Australians on his heel, chasing him down. Aaron

:59:43.:59:50.

Royle, Birtwistle and Ryan Bailie, all having a fantastic race.

:59:51.:59:55.

Chucking it down in Hamburg. Unpleasant weather but the

:59:56.:59:57.

enthusiasm of the crowds remains intact. They have stuck it out in

:59:58.:00:04.

the reign of the Hamburg Saturday afternoon and they are still five or

:00:05.:00:16.

60 around the course. -- six deep. Murray and Mola from South Africa

:00:17.:00:19.

and Spain have led this running stage from the start. Then

:00:20.:00:24.

Birtwistle, Ryan Bailey, two-hour Carrara from Portugal, battling it

:00:25.:00:31.

out potentially for the last place. -- to our Perera.

:00:32.:00:45.

Extra pace injection from Mario Mola, he is flying along here in

:00:46.:00:54.

Hamburg. The noise that welcomes them in, only leads in Hamburg

:00:55.:01:06.

provide this atmosphere. -- Leeds and Hamburg. Of on their way for

:01:07.:01:14.

their second and final lap around the city centre. The gap is 17

:01:15.:01:30.

seconds, and Fernando Alarza is a couple of seconds back.

:01:31.:01:43.

He had a condition of around six seconds behind the third and fourth

:01:44.:01:54.

place athletes. Joao Carlos Teixeira Parreira was running into a podium

:01:55.:02:11.

position. Two 15th place finishes. Mario Mola still together at the

:02:12.:02:19.

front of the field. I wonder if he's thinking, I'm going to put as much

:02:20.:02:23.

time as I can into these guys. I think that's going to be his choice.

:02:24.:02:34.

Perhaps that is a sensible one. Fernando Alarza, ranked number one

:02:35.:02:41.

in the world, is not having his own way. He is in fifth. There will be

:02:42.:02:53.

only one winner, it will be Mario Mola, because of Murray's penalty

:02:54.:03:07.

stop to come. Absolutely miserable in Hamburg after the rather benign

:03:08.:03:10.

conditions the swimmers enjoyed at the start of the race. The water was

:03:11.:03:18.

still and the heavens opened. Mario Mola potentially the greatest

:03:19.:03:41.

threat, and he is letting the world know that he could be the man to

:03:42.:03:46.

watch in the middle of August. Richard Murray, the South African,

:03:47.:03:51.

recovering from the broken collar bone despite having made a technical

:03:52.:03:57.

infringement. He is also potentially on course for an Olympic medal if he

:03:58.:04:01.

maintains this form. He has shown that he is another one to a code

:04:02.:04:13.

for. The rain is thumping down. Richard Murray stops and waves Mario

:04:14.:04:21.

Mola off. It will be the slowest ten seconds of his life. He is asking

:04:22.:04:28.

why. You will find out at the end of the race. Mario Mola can cruise to

:04:29.:04:33.

victory and he wins in Hamburg. Richard Murray has done enough. He

:04:34.:04:37.

is unhappy about the penalty he's had to take but it will all become

:04:38.:04:41.

clear when he sees the officials afterwards. He will celebrate second

:04:42.:04:53.

position. I think Fernando Alarza might have just got third. It is a

:04:54.:04:58.

photo finish between the two of them. It seems that Richard Murray

:04:59.:05:08.

was unaware that he needed to take the penalty until he veered off to

:05:09.:05:17.

his left. They are coming home in the damp conditions in Hamburg.

:05:18.:05:27.

Richard Murray could face a further sanction following his outburst. You

:05:28.:05:31.

can understand the frustration. We know who the winner is. We know that

:05:32.:05:37.

Richard Murray finished second amid all the drama.

:05:38.:05:48.

It was a great race for me. Coming to the Olympics and then, yes,

:05:49.:06:03.

trying to stay in the group, out of trouble it was sad that Richard had

:06:04.:06:06.

a penalty and we could not give a good race to the public. He has

:06:07.:06:15.

confirmed that Richard Murray has been disqualified from the race, for

:06:16.:06:21.

unsportsmanlike behaviour at the end. Fernando Alarza has moved up

:06:22.:06:32.

from fourth to third. Really happy. I put in a performance today. I

:06:33.:06:42.

thought I had got there to the line, I started second-guessing myself for

:06:43.:06:46.

a while. I was a little disappointed but I am relieved. I had a problem

:06:47.:06:59.

before transition two, but I think I feel good for Rio and I had a good

:07:00.:07:07.

race. Could you explain to us the decision to disqualify Richard

:07:08.:07:11.

Murray? It was unsportsmanlike and your against the technical official,

:07:12.:07:21.

he was given the time penalty for a reason and they should -- and he

:07:22.:07:28.

should have been responsible, he behaved in a way that meant they

:07:29.:07:32.

disqualified him. He did not do it in this case. The results are as

:07:33.:07:43.

follows... Jacob Birtwhistle has been promoted to second. Tom Bishop

:07:44.:07:53.

was down in 49. Following the Hamburg race, Mario Mola has

:07:54.:08:01.

leapfrogged his compatriot. Jonny Brownlee is still third. I'm joined

:08:02.:08:16.

by the head coach of British triathlon. A little disappointing

:08:17.:08:24.

with how it went for her. She was here to go through the process of

:08:25.:08:30.

racing. This is only her fourth race of the year. It is about going

:08:31.:08:38.

through the process, I think the main thing, normally should would be

:08:39.:08:47.

out the front up the water. Hamburg is not a big indicator of form,

:08:48.:08:54.

Hamburg is Hamburg, we generally find we don't take a lot out of it

:08:55.:08:59.

as far as moving into other races as a form guide. Quick word on

:09:00.:09:05.

Geraldine, into fourth place. It is really pleasing for her. To come

:09:06.:09:10.

back with a performance like that after Stockholm. There was something

:09:11.:09:14.

not quite right in Stockholm and today was her back to her best. She

:09:15.:09:21.

will say, that swim, if she saw that out she is capable of getting into

:09:22.:09:31.

that front group. In terms of seeing Gwen lose again, they will take some

:09:32.:09:35.

encouragement from that, probably. Everybody is beatable. She has done

:09:36.:09:48.

well every time and we try not to focus too much. The girls know what

:09:49.:09:54.

they've got to do and the type of racing they will need to put

:09:55.:09:56.

together to be successful. That's all they can do. I'm sure Gwen did

:09:57.:10:06.

not come here wanting to be beaten but I'm sure they came here as a

:10:07.:10:13.

prep, and if you look at this course compared to Rio, not massively

:10:14.:10:18.

similar. In terms of the men's race, Mario Mola showed he will be the

:10:19.:10:26.

tough contender for the Bradley brothers. He has won it every time.

:10:27.:10:44.

The Olympics is not going to be an easy ride. It will be a tough race.

:10:45.:10:54.

It is going well. It is a real shame and our sympathies go to him because

:10:55.:10:59.

you want an athlete of that calibre racing. Thank you. We're not quite

:11:00.:11:10.

done in Hamburg. Turn over to the red button. They are ready to go.

:11:11.:11:22.

Spectacular start. A collision for Vicky Holland. Chaotic scenes in

:11:23.:11:30.

transition. The triathlon mixed relay World Championship title...

:11:31.:11:33.

There is a medal for the British team. To see if France can

:11:34.:11:38.

successfully defend the mixed relay World Championship title switch over

:11:39.:11:41.

to the red button right now. As this is the last World Championship

:11:42.:11:46.

triathlon event before Rio, here is a reminder of the Olympic triathlon

:11:47.:11:50.

coverage. The event will be on the 18th of August and the women's will

:11:51.:11:58.

be on the 20th of August. Author will be live on BBC One. Still two

:11:59.:12:02.

races to come in the triathlon series after the Olympics. We will

:12:03.:12:07.

be back with live coverage of the penultimate event in Edmonton. We

:12:08.:12:15.

had almost taken arise off the World Series but Hamburg has brought us

:12:16.:12:20.

back to the present. Gwen Jorgensen losers again, Richard Murray

:12:21.:12:25.

disqualified, they will be fired up for Rio. So are we. Get the dates in

:12:26.:12:29.

your diary. We will see you then.
