Jonathan Brownlee suffers stress fracture on training trip

Oh no – Jonathan Brownlee’s bad run of luck continues with the news that he’s just picked up a stress fracture of the leg on a training trip to St. Moritz, Switzerland, ruling him out of the Rio 2016 test event in just over a month’s time.


Jonny just tweeted:

Back from St Moritz earlier than I hoped. Got a femoral stress fracture. Hope to be back for Chicago!

Jonny says in an official statement on the Brownlees’ Facebook page: “I’m obviously very disappointed. I raced really well in Auckland and the Gold Coast, and then was unlucky in London, so I was looking forward to a strong second half of the season.
