Rio stars recognised at BTF awards

Double Olympic Champion (2012 and 2016) Alistair Brownlee was named Olympic Athlete of the Year and Elite Male Athlete of the Year at the British Triathlon Federation’s annual awards dinner.


 “This year was all about the Olympic Games, so to achieve that goal was fantastic – and this award is just the cherry on the cake,” said Alistair. “It’s the end of a very tough four years and it was always in my head to have a decent bit of time off now.

“I’m not thinking too much into the future, but just enjoying the achievements before I get back to doing what I love in the new year – training.”
