London Olympics: TriathlonOne of the best showcases for London should be the Olympic Triathlon events, which take place in and around Hyde Park in central London on Saturday 4 (women) and Tuesday 7 August (men). Triathletes are often seen as the fittest all-round athletes in the world - and it's not surprising given the gruelling combination of swimming, cycling and running required. For London 2012, both the men's and the women's Triathlons consist of a 1,500m swim in the Serpentine Lake; a seven-lap, 40km bike ride around Hyde Park taking in both Buckingham Palace and the Wellington Arch; and a final four-lap, 10km run around the Serpentine to the finish. If the sun is out, both finals of what is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world should pull in huge crowds in one of London's prettiest settings.

 

About London Olympics: Hyde Park & the Serpentine

Events: Triathlon and Marathon SwimmingWhen the sun's out there are fewer places in London as scenic and special as Hyde Park, which hosts the Triathlon and Marathon Swimming events for the London 2012 Games. The Triathlon - which takes place on Saturday 4 August (women) and Tuesday 7 August (men) - will begin with a 1,500 swim in the iconic Serpentine Boating Lake before the athletes continue with a seven-lap, 40km bike ride around a stunning course that takes in Buckingham Palace and the Wellington Arch, as well as various paths around Hyde Park.
