YOKOHAMA, Japan (AP) — Jonathan Brownlee of Britain returned from an ankle injury to win his first triathlon world series race of the season in Yokahama on Saturday.

The London Olympics bronze medalist, who had been told the injury could end his season, edged out Olympic silver medalist Javier Gomez of Spain to record his fifth career series win in a time of 1 hour, 44 minutes, 59 seconds. Joao Silva of Portugal was third.

"At the start of the year I was told I wouldn't be racing at all this season," Brownlee said. "So I got a bit emotional toward the end because this year I thought I wouldn't be here at all. I thought the season was over two months ago."

After three of eight races, Silva leads the overall standings with 2,055 points followed by Gomez with 2,044 and Spain's Mario Mola with 1,326.

In the women's event, Gwen Jorgensen of the United States won her second straight series event in a time of 1:57:05 seconds, finishing ahead of Emma Moffat of Australia and Jodie Stimpson of Britain.

Jorgensen won the previous race in San Diego. She leads the standings with 1,600 points, ahead of Germany's Anne Haug with 1,433 and Moffatt with 1,425.
