Commonwealth Games – Glasgow 2014 – Part 4

For me, the big event of the day was the mixed relay triathlon which saw teams of men and women competing in three disciplines: swimming, riding and running. Competitors had to swim 250 metres, then ride bicycles for 6 kilometres, and finally run 1.6 kilometres. The English team of four were Vicky Holland, Jonnie Brownlee, Jodie Stimpson and Alistair Brownlee.  Jodie and Alistair had individually won gold medals on Thursday. All four athletes performed well to the effect that their combined effort and determination resulted in a win for England.

I was amazed at their incredible fitness. All their hard training paid off.
