Triathlon: Jonathan Brownlee wins two in a row
Monday 03 June 2013
Jonathan Brownlee claimed a second consecutive win in this year's World Triathlon Series, in Madrid yesterday.
The 23-year-old led almost from start to finish in the Spanish capital. He was in the lead group out of the water, led a breakaway group in the bike leg of the race and never looked back as he completed the race in 1hr 50min 42sec.
Javier Gomez finished second on home soil to claim the lead in the overall 2013 series standings, while Russia's Ivan Vasiliev was third. Brownlee's brother Alistair, the reigning Olympic champion, missed the race with an ankle injury.
