A Bronze medal in your first Olympic Games, at 22 years old, behind the two fastest Olympic Distance athletes in history. All things considered, it was a good day at the office yesterday for Jonathan Brownlee.

Things could have been very different if a 15 second penalty incurred at the T1 mount line had impacted his finishing position. Thankfully, it didn't cost his Bronze and - with the strength of Javier Gomez on the day - he was perhaps unlikely to pass the Spanish legend for Silver. With the Gold from brother Alistair (check out his gallery HERE), it was a great day for everyone connected with triathlon in Great Britain and indeed, a showcase event to the world.

Here is a image gallery of his day via the photographic skills of the ITU's team of Delly Carr and Janos Schmidt.

T1 could have been crucial - as Jonny was served with a 15 second penalty for mounting the bike too early.

The lead five from the swim - they quickly dropped Vasiliev - worked hard to maintain their lead.

Once caught, Stuart Hayes was often at the head of affairs keeping the pace high to reduce the chance of breakaway attempts.

Arriving at T2 at the front of the field, confidence that two British medals could be secured was increased.

It was standing room only, literally. I know of one legendary British Olympic Gold medal winner who couldn't even gain standing room in the grandstand.

Jonathan maintained the pace of brother Alistair and Spain's Javier Gomez until the 6km mark.

Brother in arms.

A worthy bronze secured. Thankfully, the penalty didn't impact the final result.

This one should be appearing on the wall at the proud parents house soon!
