Brothers Alistair Brownlee MBE and Jonathan Brownlee are Olympic Speakers and triathlon champions whose performances captured the excitement and exhilaration of the audiences at the London 2012 Olympic Games. With a gold and a bronze medal in 2012, and a gold and silver in 2016 (Alistair becoming the first triathlete ever to defend his title), the Brownlee Brothers are not only two of the most impressive siblings in sport but are also some of the most sought after sports speakers working in the after-dinner speaker circuit.
After being introduced to triathlon by their uncle, the duo regularly began competing in various junior competitions. Alistair won the World Junior Champions in 2006 and Jonny became the British youth champion in both the triathlon and duathlon in 2006 and 2007 respectively.
Throughout their professional career, Alistair made his debut appearance at an Olympic Games in 2008. He secured first place at the 2009 ITU Triathlon World Championship before becoming the winner of the Commonwealth Games Triathlon in 2014 and being named the European Elite Champion in 2011. Also enjoying a successful career, Jonny managed to take bronze at the London 2012 Olympic Games. He also secured first place in the mixed triathlon relay at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
One of the most notable moments in both brothers careers was seen at the 2016 World Triathlon Series. It was when Alistair noticed that Jonny was showing signs of exhaustion that he sacrificed the chance to win the race in order to assist his brother over the line. After quite literally pushing his brother over the line, Jonny managed to finish second followed by his brother.
The intensive and varied training required to compete in and win triathlons have given Alistair Brownlee MBE and Jonathan Brownlee a deep understanding of mental and physical commitment. The determination and drive needed to maintain both physical and mental strength are second nature to the Brownlee Brothers and their work as Olympic speakers cover this aspect of their lives.
Together the Brownlee Brothers are entertaining Olympic speakers, their personalities complement one another well and the content of their work as after dinner speakers is engaging and interesting. Their joint experiences at the London 2012 Games has given them a number of entertaining stories to share with those who watch them as Olympic speakers, whilst the dedication and professionalism demonstrated by both Alistair Brownlee MBE and Jonathan Brownlee make them genuinely inspiring sports speakers.
