Congratulations Jonathan!

It’s great news that Olympic bronze medalist Jonathan Brownlee has been crowned the world triathlon champion.  Infoserve was cheering Jonathan all the way as he became the world champion in New Zealand at the weekend. Yorkshire lad Jonathan deserved the title.  He follows in the footsteps of his brother Alistair in winning it. Elder brother Alistair, the Olympic champion,…

…did not make the final after having an appendix operation and was out of the running after missing several earlier races due to injury.

Jonathan said: “To keep the title in the family is pretty special.  It’s been a great year more than anything.  If at the start of the year, someone said that Alistair would be Olympic champion, and I would be Olympic bronze medalist and world champion as well, I would definitely have taken that.”

Too right!  Well done to Jonathan and Alistair and good luck for the future.
