Brilliant by Flora Duffy, Bermuda's first Olympic champion. She looked like she could have done another triathlon.

Silver medal for Britain's Georgia Taylor-Brown. She might have competed for the gold if she hadn't got a flat tyre towards the end of the bike element.

Absolutely brilliant race. Taylor-Brown was so unlucky but showed incredible strength to catch up with the leading pack and take silver. I stayed up for it and feel knackered now.


I was really enjoying this last night but sleep got the better of me. How did Jess Learmonth do in the end?

She ended up in ninth.

Van Der Poel claims he crash was because a plank on the course during practice was removed for the actual race. This along with the shambolic (and very dangerous) start to the Triathlon event does make you wonder if the Japanese / IOC were ready for the games or are they affected by Covid pullouts so no one experienced is around.

The VdP one was quashed by a coach who mentioned that they were told the plank was being removed for the race. (although add the question why it was there for Practice of a course).
 
Anyway to add to more Shitness from the organisers this year, a BMX rider was taken out when an official decided to cross the track without looking during a practice session.

Ta, she stormed the swim, I was rooting for her after that.

I watched the highlights of the mens Triathlon on the TV last night. (picked up just after the swim). The way Blummenfelt was grabbing water to stay as wet and cool as possible always suggested the big push on. I was surprised Yee didn't go to the tables at all in his final lap though.

Why are we so rubbish in the last five seconds of taekwando matches? It's bringing back painful memories of numerous injury time Villa disasters against scummy teams in red.

That was a heartbreaking finish.

Looking like a first ever Olympic gold for Bermuda, and a chance of a British medal, in the women's triathlon.

They already held the record for the smallest country to win a Summer medal (bronze) which they've now upgraded. Never been there and no great desire to go from what I've heard.

Commentator said Duffy is the only triathlete in history to post the fastest swim, bike and run portions in the same event. I assume she won it.
I find that difficult to believe when she wasn’t even in the first four out of the water.
