Tim Don was victorious in Windsor

Three-time Olympian Tim Don won the Toshiba Windsor Triathlon which had been reduced to a duathlon because of safety concerns over the River Thames.

The exceptional rainfall has increased the flow of the river so the swim was cancelled two days ago by organisers, meaning the event consisted of a 1,000 metre run, a 42kilometre bike ride and a 10km run.

Don, the 2006 world champion, finished in one hour 36 minutes 51 seconds.
