The quartet team of Jessica Learmont, Jonathan Brownlee, Georgia Taylor-Brown and Alex Yee won gold in the mixed triathlon relay at the Tokyo Olympics for Great Britain. In the first scene of this discipline in the sport, the American delegates took second place, and the bronze belonged to France.
The British highlighted Brownlee in the second division and although the last member of the Yee Riley in the cycling division left the post of French leader for a while, he did not give the opponents a chance in the final run.
He finished 14 seconds ahead of the Americans (Katie Zafraf, Kevin McDowell, Taylor Nip, Morgan Pearson), the French lost 23 seconds to Leoni Periold, Dorian Cognix, Cassandre Beaugrand and Vincent Lewis. Taylor-Brown and Yee have already won the same silver medal in individual competitions.
Each member of the relay race completed 300m swimming, 6.8km cycling and 2km running in their category.
