Biography

Alistair BROWNLEE

Rio 2016 saw Great Britain’s Alistair Brownlee retain the Olympic triathlon title he won on home soil at London 2012. Accompanying him on the podium on both occasions was his brother Jonathan. A bronze medallist in the British capital, the younger of the Brownlee siblings picked up silver in Rio to complete a famous family one-two.

A family affair at Rio 2016

No one was going to stop Alistair Brownlee from retaining his Olympic title at Rio 2016, not even younger brother Jonathan. Positioned in the leading group throughout the third Olympic triathlon of his career, Alistair lay fourth after the 1,500m swim, clocking a time of 17.24, and moved up to second after climbing off the bike in 1:13.52.

With his sibling for company in the 10km run, Alistair eventually eased into the lead and completed the final 2.5km lap out on his own. Cheered on by an impressive crowd, he finished in 1:45:01, six seconds ahead of Jonathan.

Having fulfilled a lifelong dream by completing a historic one-two to go with their gold and bronze at London 2012, the exhausted Brownlees shared an emotional embrace beyond the finish line before collapsing to the ground side-by-side.
