BOYS OF SUMMER

Which male Olympic athletes have thrilled us over the years?

Brownlee, who recovered from tearing his Achilles tendon four months ago, took the lead during the 10-kilometer run to finish the Kitzbuehel event in 1 hour, 50 minutes, 13 seconds.

Jonathan Brownlee made it a British 1-2 finish, trailing his brother by 49 seconds, and Javier Gomez of Spain was third.

The final world series event before the Olympic race is scheduled for Hamburg, Germany, on July 21.
