Alistair Browlee premiato ai British Triathlon Awards
Al Royal Armouries International di Leeds si sono svolti sabato 12 novembre i “British Triathlon Awards” che hanno premiato le eccellenze della triplice di Sua Maestà.
Come atleta dell’anno, ha trionfato a mani basse il campionissimo Alistair Brownlee, capace ai Giochi di Rio 2016 di mettersi al collo la seconda medaglia d’oro dopo il successo d London 2012.
«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. 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.»
– Alistair Brownlee
