All three London Olympic triathlon medallists will compete in the world triathlon grand final in Auckland in October.

Britain's gold and bronze medallists, the Brownlee brothers Alistair and Jonathan and silver medallist Javier Gomez of Spain have confirmed they will lineup.

Alistair Brownlee's indicated he'll be in Auckland as much to support his younger brothe, with injuries having curtailed the number of races he's competed in this year meaning he's unlikely to be in contention for the overall world title.

Jonathan Brownlee is currently second onverall with races in Stockholm, Yokohama and Auckland left in the season.

Russia's Alexander Bryukhankov is the overall leader.
