This is what it takes to be one of the most successful triathletes of all time, through the lens of two brothers who have represented their nation across multiple Olympic Games’ and continue to perform at the highest level.

Meet Alistair. Having started swimming and running at an early age, Ali turned his attention to triathlon, going onto represent Great Britain at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, finishing 12th overall. Since then, the elder of the two brothers has gone on to secure Olympic glory at both the 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympics in London and Rio de Janeiro respectively, becoming the first triathlete to retain their Olympic title in doing so.

Following in his elder brother’s footsteps, Jonny Brownlee was successful both nationally and internationally from an early age, going on to finish every one of his 42 races between July 2010 and May 2014 on the podium, including a bronze medal finish at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Bronze became silver in the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, with a shot a gold on the horizon at Tokyo 2020.

Training together in the pursuit of greatness, Alistair and Jonny Brownlee continue to approach everyday as an adventure, learning, persevering and treating every swim, cycle and run as an opportunity to find their edge - day in, day out.

“I’m excited to be working with a brand that shares my love for triathlon and endorses the benefits and enjoyment of an active lifestyle.”
