There was heartache at the Olympic Games in Rio tonight

:00:12.:00:14.

where Non Stanford just lost out on a bronze medal to her training

:00:15.:00:18.

The 27 year old from Bridgend was over taken by her house mate

:00:19.:00:22.

in the home straight to finish fourth.

:00:23.:00:25.

There was disappointment too for Helen Jenkins,

:00:26.:00:27.

the third member of Team GB's triathletes, who struggled

:00:28.:00:29.

Non Stanford has just been speaking to the BBC's Jonathan Edwards:

:00:30.:00:41.

At the next at the minute. Obviously and gutted that they did a medal. We

:00:42.:00:47.

came here as a team to get a medal and we have walked away with one. It

:00:48.:00:51.

was a tough day and it was really hard. I suffered from the start of

:00:52.:00:57.

the end. But I gave everything and I don't figure could have asked much

:00:58.:01:00.

more of myself. Maybe I didn't play my tactics quite right. It is still

:01:01.:01:12.

forth in the Olympic Games. You can be really proud of that. We can put

:01:13.:01:19.

it on display. A question to both of you, what was going through your

:01:20.:01:22.

mind as you were coming up to that lap 20 would be a sprint between two

:01:23.:01:27.

best friends from that medal? I just kept thinking that it would be one

:01:28.:01:31.

of us. I knew we had managed to drop Barbra behind us. I kept thinking,

:01:32.:01:36.

it's going to be one of us. I had to put that out of my mind, the fact

:01:37.:01:40.

that we are housemates. That's not how you grace. We've always said

:01:41.:01:43.

that it is fair game and I just had to approach it like that. Your

:01:44.:01:50.

thoughts? Absolutely. I was and is confident about dropping Barbra

:01:51.:01:53.

because she's really strong. That's where I kept pushing. I was to keep

:01:54.:01:57.

the place tidy make sure we didn't lose out on medals completely. Vicky

:01:58.:02:03.

did a bit better than me. What can I say? I just added at the end and

:02:04.:02:08.

delighted to have bronze. And just a bit gutted. I think the first thing

:02:09.:02:18.

I said was, I'm so sorry! Of course she was absolutely brilliant about

:02:19.:02:21.

it and congratulated me. I just said, I wish it could have been

:02:22.:02:26.

asked to together. What can you do? When was incredible. A lot stronger

:02:27.:02:31.

on the bike and I think a lot of us thought she would be. Nicola was

:02:32.:02:33.

just surging forward on the bike all the time. She really came out to try

:02:34.:02:38.

to win a title back and was strong enough to hold on the silver.

:02:39.:02:41.
