A win at Saturday’s ITU World Triathlon Series race by Spain’s Mario Mola marked a changing of the guard in London, as previously only Gomez and Alistair Brownlee had been victorious on the Hyde Park course. It’s been more than 18 months since a man other than Brownlee or Gomez has topped a World Triathlon Series podium. Mola’s gold also brought to the end the best winning streak in WTS history for Gomez, who had been unbeaten since last year’s Grand Final. However his sixth place was enough for him to keep his lead in the Threadneedle rankings. Recap the race.
