You can miss the Tokyo Games by reaching the goal at hand!
History of those rocambolescas which comes to us from the world of triathlon. Jessica Learmonth and Georgia Taylor-Brown they have come hand in hand to the goal of the qualifiers for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, a gesture of companionship and camaraderie that can cost them very expensive. The truth is that the two British athletes have been disqualified by "Lack of competitiveness" (They entered the finish line as first and second classified), a fact that has given the final triumph to Bahamas triathlete Flora Duffy.
A considerable advantage and a triumphal entry
Learmonth and Taylor-Brown have managed to escape after the swim (1,500 meters) and bicycle (40 kilometers) and have reached the final stretch running (10 kilometers reduced to five by the strong heat) with a considerable advantage that has caused , as it is a qualifying test, they decided to make a triumphant and exciting entrance of form with board.
The International Triathlon Federation (ITU) has decided to act accordingly and disqualify them, happening as we said Duffy (who had been off the hook), current world champion, to finish in first position. We will see in the end what is left and the punishment is lifted to the British, but they could run out of Games.
