BINGLEY HARRIER Alistair Brownlee won gold at the sixth World Triathlon Series event in Stockholm ahead of his brother Jonny.

Rio-bound Brownlee, from Bramhope, edged out his sibling to win in one hour 50 minutes and 33 seconds, crossing the line only ten seconds ahead on the final run stage. Pierre Le Corre, of France, secured bronze with a time of 1hr 51mins 30secs.

The 2012 Olympic champion and former Bradford Grammar School pupil said: "I need to run about a minute faster, which I think I can do in the next six weeks. If I can move my running on it will be my best chance of winning another Olympic medal."

In the women's event, Helen Jenkins claimed third place, but fellow British triathlete Non Stanford was unable to complete the course after falling off her bike and suffering a wrist injury.

Bermuda's Flora Duffy won gold (2:03:38) with Andrea Hewitt of New Zealand second (2:03:58) and Jenkins third (2:04:06) ahead of GB Olympic team-mate Vicky Holland.
