Triathlon: US victory for Alistair Brownlee
Monday 22 April 2013
Olympic champion Alistair Brownlee began his 2013 World Triathlon Series season with a comfortable win in San Diego.
Brownlee missed the campaign opener in Auckland but put in an impressive performance yesterday. He beat second-placed South African Richard Murray by 20 seconds, with Olympic silver medallist Javier Gomez finishing back in eighth.
"It's good to have had an injury-free winter. I enjoyed that, it was great," Brownlee said after the race. "I've only done six weeks of training.
"I did Abu Dhabi six weeks ago and I pushed on since then. That's all I've done in terms of really meaningful work on the track."
