Alistair Brownlee - Multiple Olympic and World Triathlon Champion

Episode 15: Alistair Brownlee

In this episode of BE with Champions, Greg Bennett chats with Alistair Brownlee. Alistair Brownlee is arguably the greatest Triathlete of all time, he’s at least very much a part of that conversation. An Olympic Gold at his home Olympics in London, then 4 years later Gold again at the Rio Olympics. Combine that with; Two ITU Triathlon World Championships, Two time World Team Champion, Four European Championships and the 2014 Commonwealth title. And most recently he won the Western Australia Ironman in Dec with a blistering course record with almost the world's fastest ever Ironman time of 7hr45min20sec. He races without fear and races for the win with absolute intent. A man that has triumphed under enormous pressure, has come back from adversity time and time again and showed enormous character when he carried his brother across the line at the cost of his own shot at the ITU Grand Final win in 2016. Alistair discusses the importance of his team and those closest to him. He goes into detail managing the pressure of the Olympics.
