    You couldn’t have asked for a more fitting final to the ITU World Triathlon Series. In a rematch between perennial favorites and 2012 Olympic medalists, Javier Gomez Noya and the Brownlee brothers, the entire world title came down to a final sprint between the sport’s two powerhouses. Gomez Noya was able to outlast Jonny Brownlee, reversing the final medal count at the Summer Olympics just a year earlier at the same venue where the Spaniard took second prize and Jonny won bronze. Unfortunately for the Olympic gold medalist, Alistair Brownlee was hobbled by an ankle injury and couldn’t race with his brother and Gomez Noya to the finish. Mario Mola of Spain took third place in the race.

    Spain’s Javier Gomez Noya is a triathlon force to be reckoned with. He proved so by his lack of time off between wins from one season to the next. Capping off his 2012 season with wins in the ITU Grand Final in Auckland and X-Terra World Championships in Maui, Hawaii, Gomez Noya began his 2013 season in similar fashion. The 2012 London Olympic silver medalist won the 2013 Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon in San Francisco, CA by over a minute.

    Javier Gomez Noya has been on a roll throughout the 2012 season. A roll so dominant, not even a tsunami warning could slow him down. A tsunami warning was issued for the entire island of Maui late Saturday night, but it was canceled early Sunday morning. Gomez Noya racked up yet another win this weekend at the XTERRA World Championships at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua on the island of Maui. The event featured a 1.5km swim, a 30km mountain bike ride and a 10km trail run. His winning time of 2 hours, 26 minutes, 54 seconds was extra impressive being that it was Gomez Noya’s first appearance at the race. On the women’s side, Lesley Paterson defended her 2011 XTERRA title finishing in a winning time of 2:44:12.
