Ecstatic crowds in Hyde Park, along with the rest of the nation, are celebrating another huge Team GB victory as Alistair Brownlee took the gold in the Men's Triathlon.

The Royal Parks Chief Executive Linda Lennon CBE said:

"What a moment for our country - to see a GB gold and bronze medal taken in Hyde Park - one of London's most beautiful and iconic locations. Huge congratulations to Jonathan Brownlee and Alistair Brownlee on their incredible performances.

"Up to 200,000 spectators in Hyde Park went wild as the world's top triathletes swam, cycled and ran the Triathlon route, taking in against some of the most stunning backdrops in central London including Hyde Park, St James's Park and Buckingham Palace.

"This is the second Team GB gold medal won in as many days in the Royal Parks and we're so proud that these stunning parks are host to some breathtaking and memorable Olympic moments."


The first gold to be taken at London's Royal Parks was yesterday at Greenwich Park in the Equestrian Show-Jumping competition.

Hyde Park's Serpentine Lake will host two more exciting Olympic events this week - the Women's Olympic Marathon Swim on Thursday 9 August and the Men's Olympic Marathon Swim on Friday 10 August.
