The gold medal went to the team from Great Britain, with New Zealand taking the silver and France the bronze. Also finishing ahead of the US were Netherlands, Japan, and Slovenia.
Fellow Olympian and Eagle Joe Maloy ’08 (right) also competed today, finishing 23rd overall in the men’s triathlon. He was the highest-placing American in the competition, completing the swim-bike-run course in 1:48.30.
