Watch Helen Jenkins excel at Jewel World Triathlon Gold Coast

It was, in my opinion, the best performance of her career from Helen Jenkins on Saturday. To cope with both the pressure of Olympic selection (which I had previewed in-depth last week), and to then produce an practically flawless performance to end the almost two year unbeaten World Triathlon Series winning streak of reigning, double World Champion Gwen Jorgensen is I think worthy of that praise. Read my full report on the race HERE - and watch the highlights below.

Commenting on her race, Helen said:

On the Swim: "I didn't have the best swim... at the first buoy I was way back, but I gave myself a bit of a talking to and managed to move up by the end of the first lap. I was next to Gwen and thought, that will be ok then."

On the Bike: "It was so technical, it was just as hard sitting in as it was on the front. I felt better as it went on, but that bike really hurt."

On Jodie Stimpson: "My heart breaks for Jodie as well. The team is not announced yet, but I think I've probably done enough today... it's so hard, our team is so strong, it doesn't seem fair that she might not be going to the Games."
