Jonny down as Brownlees are beaten

By: Angus DunsireJonny Brownlee was upset he could not keep the family name on the world championship trophy as Spain's Javier Gomez clinched a dramatic victory at the World Triathlon Grand Final in Hyde Park. It came down to a sprint finish between the two men, with both knowing victory would give them the title, but the Spaniard was the stronger in the final metres.The world title is decided over a series of races and Olympic champion Alistair Brownlee led the way in the standings after three victories but an ankle injury that has troubled him for much of the year kept him out of contention. Going into transition at the start of the 10 kilometre run, the 25-year-old was grimacing in pain, and he eventually trailed in 52nd at the same venue where he won gold last summer.Only Gomez has managed to rival the Brownlees since Alistair won the world title for the first time in 2009, with the elder brother winning again in 2011 and Jonny taking the crown for the first time last season.
