Mario Mola wins WTS Hamburg

Without the Brownlees and Javier Gomez, who had broken his arm when training and is now out of the Olympics,  the Spaniard Mario Mola was always the favourite to win the sprint distance, and he did not disappoint with his fourth WTS win of the season. South Africa’s Richard Murray looked certain to take second until he displayed unsportsmanlike behaviour on hearing he had incurred a penalty led the officials to disqualify him from the race.
