Jonathan is the younger of the two Brownlees and is mentioned in the same breath as his older brother Alistair, but has also distinguished himself as the two-time reigning World Sprint Triathlon Champion and 2012 ITU World Champion. He narrowly missed out on the 2016 ITU World Championship when while leading the race he nearly passed out. Alistair came to his rescue and pushed him across the finish in second place in a touching scene that inspired millions around the world. Despite their obvious care for each other, the pair battle hard on the triathlon course. Sibling rivalry drives the Brownlee brothers, but it’s that competition that has made them the champion athletes they are today and will light up the course at Super League Triathlon come race day.
