The finishing touches being made to the finish gantry. At the end of each race, the transition area will be cleared of bikes so that the winners' podium can be moved into place in front of the grandstand for the medal ceremony. The organisers will wait until every athlete has completed the race as a mark of respect before moving the podium.

Even if you don't have a ticket for the triathlon, you might catch a glimpse of the medal ceremony from the other side of the Serpentine. To show your support for Team GB, go along to line the bike and run route. The women's race starts at 9am on Saturday 4th August, with the men's race on Tuesday 7th August at 11.30am.
