Sunday's Rio de Janeiro ITU World Olympic Qualification Event acted as the test event for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. For many countries, including Great Britain, it was also part their respective athlete qualification process. Unlike the World Triathlon Series events there was no live broadcast coverage - but you can now catch up on the event highlights courtesy of the ITU reviews.

Here we present the Elite Women, where Gwen Jorgensen (USA) continued her stranglehold on the top step of the podium to secure her Olympic berth, while in second and third place, Non Stanford and Vicky Holland are halfway to meeting the tough British qualification standards for automatic selection this year. They need to repeat another podium finish in Chicago at the Grand Final in September to confirm their return to Rio next August.
