Here is the official update on Alistair's injury from Malcolm Brown, British Triathlon's Olympic Performance Manager:

"Alistair has a small tear in his left Achilles tendon and is wearing an air cast as a precaution. Obviously this isn't an ideal situation, but I can say that this has been his best winter's training, probably ever. We had scheduled a break from training at the end of the winter period anyway, so I am not overly concerned at this stage.

"He is swimming every day, and will train on a static bike today. He has been doing some light running, but now that he's wearing the cast, we will allow the Achilles to repair before resuming light running again, hopefully within the next ten days.

"Alistair's first planned major race is the ITU World Triathlon San Diego in mid May. We had never intended that he would race the World Triathlon Series event in Sydney in April, so he still has three months to prepare for that."
