Simon Whitfield’s wife Jennie and daughter Pippa cry following the news that Simon had been knocked out of the race following a crash on the bike during the men’s triathlon at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The Canadian was in good position following a 1.5-kilometre swim but lost control of his bike after going over a small speed bump coming out of the transition. Whitfield veered sharply to the left and went careening off his bike into a curb and metal guard-rail. He knocked another competitor down in the process.
This was expected to be his last race. (Photo: Tyler Anderson/National Post)
