If you were not one fo the lucky few to get a ticket to the venue however there are still many ways to watch the Olympians in action for free.
Come down to one of the 8 Triathlon Live locations around the UK - participate in our unique triathlon set-up and watch all the action on a big screen in a city centre near you.
