Brownlee brothers awarded honorary doctorates

In recognition of their achievements over the last decade or so Alistair and Jonny Brownlee have been honoured with an award by Leeds Beckett University. Since 1982, the university has each year recognised individuals who have excelled in their chosen field or made a significant contribution to public life with an honorary award.


Peter Mackreth, Dean of the Carnegie School of Sport at Leeds Beckett, said: “Alistair and Jonny are world class athletes who have taken the triathlon to new levels.

“They have a long-established relationship with Leeds Beckett University, working with our coaches and researchers, who themselves are leaders in their fields on an international stage.
