The Olympics are less than a month away and surely the Brownlee brothers must be in serious contention for a podium finish. The brothers recently competed in the Kitzbühel triathalon.
Alistair Brownlee won the race comfortably 50 seconds in front of his brother Jonny. The win was made all the more remarkable because Alistair had not competed at the beginning of the season due to a torn Achilles tendon.
“Races never go to plan, I never really have a race plan these days,” said Alistair, who has won seven of his last nine ITU races. “We just tried to push the early part of the bike as hard as we could and see what happened, but we couldn’t get away, but I think it was important we hurt a lot of people’s legs early on. It’s nice to be back on the podium and it is fantastic that we got a one-two.
Here hoping for a gold and silver for the Brownlee brothers at the London Olympics.
