As well as winning bronze, John was second Brit in Category G.

This morning’s race took place through the heart of the city. It started with a 5k run through a park, followed by a 22k bike through very hilly countryside and then another run through the park into a blue carpeted grandstand area.

Before the race he admitted he was nervous and said: “I’m now just hoping all the Tri Club training has worked. Their support has been a great motivator.”

Afterwards he said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to win bronze but the result was unexpected.

”It was very windy and I was doing 45mph down the inclines and it was really throwing me about.

“It’s been an amazing experience and the atmosphere and support has been fantastic.”
