Jonny Brownlee continues his build-up towards the start of this year’s World Triathlon Series by finishing third in the Armagh Road Race in Northern Ireland with a time of 14:00.13 (an average of 4:30 min/mile).
The London Olympics bronze medalist led for much of the 5 kilometer event before being overhauled in the closing stages by U.S. winner Joe Stilin and Liverpool’s Daniel Cliffe.
“I really enjoyed tonight’s race. My preparations for the start of the World Series have been going really well and thankfully, there have been no injuries,” Brownlee told BBC Sport Northern Ireland.
The World Triathlon Series will start in Abu Dhabi on March 6-7.
