Alistair Brownlee won the course that will star in the competition at the London 2012 Olympic Games with a time of 1:50:09
Javier Gómez Noya has managed to retain the leadership of the Triathlon World Championship after finishing fourth in the fifth round of the World Series, held in London, in a test in which the Briton has won Alistair Brownlee, his main rival for the title.
The oldest of the Brownlee family won the track that will star in the competition at the 2012 London Olympics with a time of 1:50:09, ahead of Russian Alexander Brukhankov, 25 seconds away, and his little brother, Jonathan Brownlee , to 55.
However, for the Ferrol triathlete, a fourth position has been enough to continue leading the World Cup classification with 2660 points, by Alistair's 2490 and Brukhankov's 2403, which rises to third position after the debacle of British William Clarke, who is now seventh.
For his part, Galician Iván Raña, world and European champion in 2002, finished in 21st position after running the entire race in the top positions. The other Spaniard in the test, the Balearic Mario Mola, was forced to withdraw.
The rain and a temperature close to 20º received the participants in 'The Serpentine', in Hyde Park, which saw the beginning of a test in which the athlete from Ferrol came out to defend his privileged position against the Brownlee brothers.
Gómez Noya: "I couldn't react to Brownlee's outburst"
The Spanish triathlete Javier Gómez Noya commented that he could not react "to the start of Alistair", after finishing fourth in the fifth scoring round of the World Series, a result that is worth to maintain the leadership in the general of the Championship.
“Alistair's (Browlee) start caught me in the middle of the pack and I couldn't react, but since we kept them for several kilometers to about 15 seconds I didn't worry. Then, when Raña arrived, they escaped us because there was conformity and it seemed that they considered it impossible to win Alistair, "he said in statements provided by his press service.
As for the remainder of the championship, the triathlete was optimistic because he has put aside his annoyances. "I have run without the problems of the previous triathlons and that gives me morale for the two remaining appointments in Lausanne and Beijing," he said.
