Anyone watching last night's Olympic triathlon would not have been able to stay seated in their chairs for the final 5km of the run. It was the most exciting race of this Olympics in my opinion. When Whitfield took a bit of a breather in the final km then bridged the gap, my parents' living room was filled with cheers from our whole family, huddled around the tv hoping for gold. After a valiant kick to try and drop Frodeno, the German proved to have a kick of his own. We're all very proud of Simon Whitfield and his efforts. It's another drop in my bucket of motivation and inspiration.
