Crowds cheer Jenkins' triathlon bid

Hundreds of thousands of people thronged into central London to watch the Olympic triathlon and Helen Jenkins' bid to add to Britain's gold tally.
Crowds around the Serpentine in Hyde Park were 10 deep in some places to watch the start of the race and the massive support continued for the cycling which passed in front of Buckingham Palace.
Triathlon is one of the few events that is mainly non-ticketed, where crowds can line the route to cheer on the British team.
Jenkins has previously said she was hoping that similar crowds to the ones that roared Bradley Wiggins on to Olympic gold on Wednesday will help her stand on top of the triathlon podium.
The 27-year-old, from Bridgend, went into the race as the reigning world champion but failed to win a medal, crossing the finish line in fifth place.
