On the final lap of the bike stage of the race, the Manchester athlete suffered a flat tyre.
The incident cost her around 22 SECONDS during the transition from bike to run.
But a brilliant effort so far in the final stage has put her in with a brilliant chance of a medal.
Speaking on BBC’s coverage, former triathlete Annie Emerson said: “I think Georgia Taylor-Brown has got a flat back tyre – she is struggling in the turns – might just have cost her gold medal chances.”
But during the run she quickly managed to find herself back up into bronze medal position and closing on silver.
