Alistair Brownlee wins Bloodwise Blenheim Palace Triathlon

Olympic hopeful Gordon Benson came third, causing speculation that he could potentially be the third member of the men’s Olympic team for Rio, joining the Brownlee brothers. (The team will be announced on Tuesday).  Aaron Harris was second, just under a minute behind Alistair.

The last time Alistair competed at Blenheim was in 2012, just before winning Olympic gold in London, so is this a good omen for Rio?
