Commonwealth Games 2018: Brownlee brothers to present English Triathlon squad



Alistair Brownlee will now officially defend his Commonwealth Games title at the Gold Coast event in 2018. Alistair, who’s the main name of the English squad, was named on the English Triathlon squad and will be accompanied by his brother, Jonny.


Tom Bishop will also join the double Olympic champion in representing one of the strongest triathlon and Paratriathlon teams of the Commonwealth Games in the Australian city.


“It’s a great honor to be representing Team England. I have had the chance to compete at the Commonwealth Games once before. It’s a big deal for a niche sport like triathlon to compete in a global sporting competition like this,” Alistair Brownlee said.


“I am looking forward to getting out there on the start line. At the moment I am focusing on my training for the next few months to get myself in the best possible shape I can be in for the Games.”

“I have been lucky enough to race there before actually, at the same venue. I have some good and bad memories of that.
