What's the worst spot to finish in at the Olympics?
That's where Laura Bennett of the U.S. finished in the women's triathlon in Beijing on Sunday. Fourth place is just one spot away from a medal ... so close but close, as they say, only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.
Still, Bennett seemed pleased with her performance and if you got a chance to watch any of the race, you saw three-time world champion Emma Snowsill of Australia completely pull away from the pack on the run.
The run was also the highlight of the men's race where Germany's Jan Frodeno sprinted past Canadian Simon Whitfield down the stretch to take gold. The U.S. men, however, finished out of the Olympic medals for the third straight year.
