BBC Sport - Youth Olympics: Triathlete Ben Dijkstra elated to win first British gold in Nanjing

Dijkstra elated by 'dream' win in Nanjing

Triathlete Ben Dijkstra says he is "astonished" to win GB's first gold medal at the Youth Olympics in Nanjing, China, after beating Daniel Hoy of New Zealand in a photo finish.

New Zealand claimed Dijkstra infringed in the transition between the cycle and run, however their appeal was later dismissed.

The 15-year-old from Leicester hopes he can bring home another gold in the mixed-relay team event on Thursday.
