Alex Yee hails his ‘greatest achievement’ after winning gold at the Commonwealth Games

Alex Yee took England’s first gold medal at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games by winning the men’s triathlon at Sutton Park.

Yee chased New Zealand’s Hayden Wilde at 50 minutes and 34 seconds to take the win by a 13-second margin, while Australia’s Matthew Hauser was three seconds behind.

Georgia Taylor-Brown, who also won an individual silver medal in Tokyo, was hoping to emulate Yee in the women’s later on Friday.

Describing his win as “my biggest win ever,” Yee added to BBC Sport: “It’s the first time I’ve played in front of my parents in a big game in a long time.

“I’m just happy. It’s bizarre that I’m doing this and I can be very thankful to be in this situation.

“I am proud to be a triathlete today, to see so many different nations that I have never ridden before and who are doing triathlon for the first time.”
