    Triathlon Highlights today - from the BBC:
    TRIATHLON (08:55): Helen Jenkins
    Jenkins might not have the profile of Brownlee brothers Alistair and Jonny but the Welsh triathlete is herself a world champion and in great form heading into Saturday's Olympic race at Hyde Park. She will have help from team-mates Lucy Hall and Vicky Holland. Australia's Erin Densham, Swiss Nicola Spirig and Paula Findlay of Canada could be among the medal threats.

    Exciting finish to race - photo finish, Switzerland winning gold. Poor Roger won't be able to be the first Swss to win a medal in these games now.

    Well done Helen Jenkins who came 5th. She had a lot of injury problems in the build up to the olympics.

    TRIATHLON (11:30-13:45): Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, Men's Triathlon

    Triathlon's wonder brothers Alistair and Jonny Brownlee have dominated their sport in recent years and finished first and second, by some distance, in the recent World Cup event in Switzerland.

    With the home advantage of Hyde Park and a domestique in Stuart Hayes to help them, the brothers will be a daunting prospect for the likes of Spain's Javier Gomez, Russia's Alexander Bryukhankov, South Africa's Richard Murray and Germany's Steffen Justus.

    There is a 15 second penalty for Jonny Brownleigh for getting on his bike too soon.

    That's going to make things tricky, it's a big ask to beat the rest of the field by 15s, especially as the two brothers tend to race as a team in the early stages....

    Brilliant for Jonny to get that bronze even with the time penalty!
