    292: Featured Performer: Alistair Brownlee (MBE). Dual Olympic Triathlon Champion (2012 & 2016). Author Relentless: Secrets of the Sporting Elite

    Alistair Brownlee is the Dual Olympic Games Champion (2012 and 2016 Olympic Games) becoming the first Triathlete in history to have defended their title.  His younger brother Jonny secured the bronze in London making history as the first brothers in Olympic history for a podium in an individual sport since 1908. Jonny’s silver in 2016 made history again for the brothers becoming the first British brothers to ever finish first and second in an individual event at an Olympic Games. Alistair is the two-time World Series Triathlon Champion, 4X European Champion and 2014 Commonwealth Games Champion.  Alistair is the first triathlete to be nominated for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year and was bestowed the honour of flagbearer for England in the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
    Alistair was a candidate for the International Olympic Committee's Athletes Commission and has since turned his attention to long course racing having picked up Dual Ironman Distance race wins, runner up in the 2019 Ironman 70.3 World Championships and an eye on becoming the first triathlete in history to break the seven-hour barrier for an Ironman distance event with Phoenix's sub seven-hour attempt upcoming in 2022. Alistair has become an author, publishing "Relentless: Secrets of the Sporting Elite". 
    In this episode Alistair discusses "Relentless", his career highs, lows and learnings, his own reflection on dropping Jonny in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games Triathlon to secure the win. We look at that history making event, the grand final of the World Triathlon series in Cozumel 2016, where Alistair in what many have said redefined their confidence and faith in modern sport by carrying and assisting heat stricken younger brother Jonny across the line.
