2012 Olympics - Triathlon

Triathlon makes its fourth appearance in the Summer Olympics in London, where it will be contested at Hyde Park. Three sports in one, triathlon requires athletes to race a course that involves a 1,500m swim, followed by a 43km bike and then a 10km run. It's just a single race for both the women (Aug. 4) and men (Aug. 6) -- no preliminaries or heats -- first one to cross the finish line wins the gold.
