Kahlefeldt felt ill after completing Saturday’s ITU World Triathlon Series race in San Diego, Calif.

Australian Olympic triathlete Brad Kahlefeldt will be discharged from a San Diego Hospital tomorrow after extensive tests have cleared him of tuberculosis.

Doctors now believe Kahlefeldt is suffering from atypical Pneumonia and has been on antibiotics since being admitted to hospital after last Sunday’s ITU World Championship race in San Diego.

Kahlefeldt underwent a lung biopsy yesterday with results due on Monday and doctors have said he will not be allowed to fly for at least another week.

Doctors at the Scripts Mercy Hospital in San Diego have been in daily consultation with the Triathlon Australia medical staff to monitor Kahlefeldt’s progress.

They have told the London bound Beijing Olympian he still has a long way to go in his recovery and training as he prepares for the Olympics.
