Brownlee Brothers to ‘put on a show’ to Abu Dhabi WTS. The Full Course Inside


Brownlee Brothers have confirmed places at this year’s ITU World Triathlon Abu Dhabi event as Double Olympic champion Alistair and his brother Jonny have promised to ‘put on a show’ at the WTS opener which will take place on Yas Island on March 2-3.


Now everyone is waiting for the Brownlee brothers to completely headline the ITU World Triathlon Abu Dhabi event as both Alistair, 29, who won Olympic gold at the London 2012 Games and four years later the same trophy in Rio de Janeiro and his younger brother Jonny, 27, took third place in London and silver at Rio Games, belong to the highest caliber of triathlon athletes.


“Abu Dhabi is an awesome location for the season-opening WTS race. I raced on the Corniche course back in 2015. I am excited to check out the new course on Yas Island. The weather in March in Abu Dhabi will be perfect – a far cry from the conditions we have experienced in the UK this winter,” Jonny Brownlee said in a communique the event organizers issued.


“Everyone knows that we both give 110 per cent when we race. Abu Dhabi will be no different. We’ll definitely be putting on a show for the crowds in March.”


Dominating the triathlon world


Brownlees brothers have made history throughout the years by strongly dominating the sport for more than a decade. They have provided the public with some of the most inspiring moments in the triathlon history. One of them being when Alistair helped his sibling cross the finish line when at the ITU World Triathlon Series Grand Final in Cozumel, Mexico after an injury in 2016.


“I’m definitely keen to get out there and race; the new course on the F1 track looks really good for a sprint distance race.


“I’m looking forward to toeing the line against a top field in Abu Dhabi to see where I am after coming back from injury. It’s no secret that I’ll be looking to be competitive. Especially with the Commonwealth Games coming up in April,” Alistair added.



This year’s competition is set to welcome up to 3,500 participants with 120 of them being part of the world’s best triathletes.
