 2 of 8 

The first thing you see when you arrive at the site is the enormous grandstand. This seating area will accommodate 3000 spectators for each race and overlooks the transition area and swim start located by the Serpentine.

The flags of every competing nation are displayed, in alphabetical order, as well as the International Triathlon Union flag. The Union Jack is displayed at both ends - an honour afforded to the host nation.
