NZ triathletes fail to impress in London

9:35 am on 8 August 2011

The New Zealand coach Greg Fraine concedes not having any athletes place in the top ten of the London triathlon is a major disappointment just 12 months out from the Olympics.

The athletes will have to race the same course again at next year's London Games and the New Zealanders less than desirable results will be a psychological blow.

The seven strong New Zealand contingent now have just two more events in which to qualify for the Olympics and Fraine says this morning's poor showing is cause for real concern.
