Alex Yee

Alex Yee is a member of the UK Sport World Class Lottery Funded British triathlon squad. As well as representing Great Britain in triathlon, he has represented Great Britain at senior level in athletics, including running the 10km a the 2018 European Championships.

At the age of eight, Alex took part in a Kids of Steel Triathlon and enjoyed it so much that it followed his father, Ron, into the sport. When his local club set up a junior section he went along to the first session and has continued since. He is still a member of the Crystal Palace club, but now trains at the Leeds Triathlon Centre and attends Leeds Beckett University.

His younger brother and sister also both compete in triathlon. His father was a competitive shooter in his years in the army and also won the BUCS championships. Alex's father is Chinese, which is where the surname, Yee originates from. Alex says; 'It often raises eyebrows and occasionally the chant, "Yeehah!"'

Alex has been recognised as a talented athlete to watch for the future; in Novemember 2016 he received Sports Aid's One-to-Watch Award from Olympic hero, Mo Farah CBE. Alex is currently running a faster 5,000m time than Mo was at the same age, but says his future lies in triathlon.
