Alistair Brownlee – Olympic Champion

Posted on August 11, 2012 by Rodge

Well, he did it – in fact they did it! Congratulations to both Alistair and Jonny Brownlee on Gold and Bronze medal performances in the Men’s Olympic Triathlon.

Under massive pressure and expectation Alistair Bownlee produced his finest ever display to be crowned the Olympic Triathlon Champion on home soil. As always he lead from the front and took it to them – all of them. His 10km run was a blistering 29.07 and he didn’t even run flat out to the line! His younger brother Jonny didn’t disappoint either taking a fantastic Bronze medal even though he had a 15 second time penalty picked up in Transition 1. The brothers are remarkable – a glowing advert for this amazing sport and what hard work and dedication can bring. I imagine there will be many little Alistair and Jonny’s out there fancying a shot at competing in future Olympic Triathlons – can’t wait..
