British Triathlon’s Olympic Nomination Committee has confirmed the pre-selection of four triathletes, subject to form, fitness and eligibility, for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games next summer. Official selection to Team GB will be announced by the British Olympic Association (BOA) next June.


Non Stanford and Vicky Holland met the Automatic Qualification criteria of the 2016 BTF Olympic Nomination Policy by winning medals at both the Rio Olympic Triathlon Test Event and the World Triathlon Grand Final in Chicago. 

Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee met the British Triathlon Pre Selection criteria based on evidence of their ability to win a medal at the Olympic Games. Both Alistair and Jonathan have won rounds of the ITU World Triathlon Series this year and were memorable medal winners at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
