Photo finish in women's triathlon

A photograph is required to separate Nicola Spirig of Switzerland and Sweden's Lisa Norden following a dramatic sprint finish to the women's Olympic triathlon in Hyde Park.

The dead-heat after nearly two hours of intense competition was a fitting finale to the contest, with Australian Erin Densham just two seconds behind in third and Britain's Helen Jenkins finishing fifth after her challenge faded during the closing stages.
