In a statement to The Yorkshire Post, British Triathlon Executive Director Andy Salmon who sits on the selection committee was reluctant to favor any athlete

“TWe have two slots for Tokyo and we are working to secure another place.

We currently have Jonny Brownlee selected and now all eyes are on who else could be selected.

We are analyzing the results, training data, and we will make the selection after the race in Leeds.

Alistair is an incredible athlete, as everyone knows, but recently he had a minor injury. We all hope it continues to improve.

I guess it is progressing very well. We are looking forward to seeing him racing in Leeds again, which is fantastic for the event, great for the people and great for him as we know how much he loves racing in Leeds.

And then we'll see how things unfold"
