Javier Gómez Noya will be world champion if he finishes three places ahead of Jonathan Brownlee in Auckland on October 21

Yokohama silver keeps Javier Gómez Noya in the fight for the title of triathlon World champion. The Ferrolan clings to his options, which go through two premises in the Auckland final of the next 21 in October: a place in the top five and a bad day by Jonathan Brownlee, the youngest of the British brothers, the provisional leader of the general.

Jonathan Brownlee leads the provisional classification with 3.825 points, compared to 3.645 for Ferrol and 3.285 for Russian Alexander Bryukhankov. The situation turns the Auckland test into a duel between the first two for the title, although the event will have other important players. Olympic champion Alistair Brownlee will be participating to try to help his brother set a strong pace. And other triathletes are chasing a good result that will take them to the final podium of the World Cup classification.

For Gómez Noya, a position in the top three of the final overall would consolidate him as the most reliable triathlete of the time, having been on the podium in six consecutive editions of the World Championship.

If Gómez Noya wins his third world title in Auckland, he will match Australian Peter Robertson's three and will only be behind Britain's Simon Lessing, with five.
