He suffered a crash early in the bike portion of his race at the London 2012 Games and and was forced to withdraw.

He returned to the Games in 2004 and finished in 11th place. Determined to fight his way back onto the podium, Whitfield electrified the nation in Beijing where he sprinted to the silver medal.

Whitfield capped off a 2011 season in which he won his 10th national title and a fourth-place finish at the World Triathlon Series race in Yokohama, Japan.
