Ali Brownlee triumphs at WTS Leeds

The Yorkshire setting. A buoyant and bumper home crowd. A one-two finish. Things couldn’t have been scripted much better for the Brownlee brothers at the inaugural ITU World Triathlon Series race in Leeds this afternoon following a blistering performance over their Rio Olympic rivals. After 1:49hrs of frenetic racing, Alistair would be the top dog while Jonny would follow him home in second.

Roundhay Park in Leeds was the picturesque setting for one of the last showdowns before the Olympic Games. Much of the attention – and adulation – from the reported 100,000 crowd was centred on the Brownlee brothers, with Jonny and Ali truly racing on home soil.
