The Enniskillen man had been an injury doubt in the lead up to the competition but he produced a fine performance over the Hyde Park course.

Noble was 15th coming out of the swim and during the cycle section he even took the lead before completing the transition in 11th place.

And he pushed hard during the run to come home in 23rd position, a great achievment for the Fermanagh man.

The race was won by favourite GB's Alastair Brownlee.
