The favorite coming in to the London Olympics was the home-crowd hero, Alistair Brownlee. He was expected to be challenged by his brother, Jonathan Brownlee, with the locals hoping for gold and silver. The Brits would be disappointed but only just so. Another challenger was two-time World Champion Javier Gómez of Spain.

Richard Varga (SVK) led the pack out of the water, and on the first of seven bike laps, a pack of seven formed, including the Brownlees and Gómez. On the third bike lap, 15 riders caught the leaders, forming a lead pack of 22, which included the defending champion Jan Frodeno (GER) and pre-race contenders Aleksandr Bryukhankov (RUS) and Sven Riederer (SUI).

The 22-man lead group stayed together until near the final transition, with the Brownlees, Gómez, and Vincent Luis (FRA) forming the lead group on the run. Luis was quickly dropped, and at the end of three of four laps, Jonathan Brownlee was informed he was being penalized for an early exchange onto his bike after the swim and had to serve 15 seconds in the penalty box. This left Alistair Brownlee and Gómez to fight it out for gold. Alistair opened up a gap on Gómez at the beginning of the final lap, and pulled away to win comfortably by 11 seconds. Gómez won silver and Jonathan Brownlee held on for the bronze. The quality of the race was shown by all three medalists and fourth-placed David Hauss (FRA) covering the 10 km run in under 30 minutes.
