Biography

www.alistairbrownlee.com

Alistair Brownlee is a double world champion in the ITU World Championship Series and a multiple winner on the circuit.

He is a two-time winner of the ITU World Championship Series race in London – 2009 and 2011 – and a double gold medallist at the European Championships.

Brownlee also won the world under-23 title in 2008, two months before his Olympic debut, but his most successful year was 2009, when he won all five ITU World Championship Series races entered.

He missed the early part of the 2012 season with an Achilles injury but returned to share victory with brother Jonathan at the Blenheim Triathlon, just a few weeks before the Games.

Brownlee began a degree in medicine at Girton College, Cambridge, but left in 2006 to move back to Yorkshire, focus on triathlon and study for a degree in physiology and sport at the University of Leeds.

As a junior, Brownlee was an impressive fell and cross- country runner, coming second in the English Junior Cross Country Championships and winning the Yorkshire county title on several occasions.

In 2009, Brownlee represented Great Britain at the European Cross Country Championships in Dublin.

At the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Brownlee won gold in Triathlon.
