Gold Coast 2016 Highlights - Mario Mola wins his third consecutive World Triathlon Series event

Alistair Brownlee: "I just had nothing today"

Chicago Grand Final. Abu Dhabi. Gold Coast. Should there be any thoughts remaining that Spain's Mario Mola is a Sprint distance specialist, those stats eliminate that. Check out the highlights from another super performance below.

While it was another classy display from Mario Mola, Saturday was a disappointing day for Great Britain's Alistair Brownlee. With 16 wins from 22 previous WTS Olympic Distance starts, Alistair's already off the scale stats are even more impressive over the 1.5km / 40km / 10km format - but he ended his day in 36th position after a 35:12 10km, in his first race back after surgery on his ankle in late 2015.

"It was fantastic to be on the start line. Of course, I knew I wasn't going to be mega race sharp and knew I wouldn't be absolutely at my best... but I just had nothing today. I was really flat, maybe slightly overdone or something - that's how it goes I suppose. I don't think the heat was a problem today, I just had nothing there."
