KITZBUEHEL, Austria -- Alistair Brownlee of Britain made a winning return to the world series triathlon circuit Sunday, seven weeks before the London Olympics race.

Brownlee, who recovered from tearing his Achilles tendon four months ago, took the lead during the 10-kilometer run to finish the Kitzbuehel event in 1 hour, 50 minutes, 13 seconds.

Jonathan Brownlee made it a British 1-2 finish, trailing his brother by 49 seconds, and Javier Gomez of Spain was third.

The final world series event before the Olympic race is scheduled for Hamburg, Germany, on July 21.
