2012 London Olympic Triathlon (video)

Gold Medal: Alistair Brownlee

Swim (1500m): 1.46 m/s
Bike (40,000m): 11.27 m/s
Run (10,000m): 5.72 m/s

 

speed = distance / time

time = distance / speed

 

Swim: time = 1500 m / 1.46 ms-1 = 1024 s

Bike: time = 40,000 m / 11.27 ms-1 = 3548 s

Run: time = 10,000 m / 5.72 ms-1 = 1747 s

Total distance = 1500 m + 40,000 m + 10,000 m = 51,500 m

Total time = 1024 s + 3548 s + 1747 s = 6319 s

Average speed = distance / time = 51,500 m / 6319 s = 8.15 ms-1
