Jonathan Brownlee

Jonny is an Olympic silver and bronze medal winner as well as multiple ITU world champion. He won Olympic bronze in London 2012 and upgraded to silver in Rio 2016 behind his older brother, Alistair. He is a member of the UK Sport Lottery Funded World-Class Performance Squad and trains at the Leeds Performance Centre.

Jonny has followed his brother closely, winning European and world junior and U23 honors before breaking in to the senior ranks in 2010. In that year he went from being a talented junior to a senior ITU world sprint champion and a podium finisher in the ITU World Series. He was also an emphatic winner of the U23 world title in Budapest in September 2010.

He won the ITU world title in Auckland in 2012 after winning World Series rounds in San Diego, Madrid and Stockholm. He has also finished second in 2011, 2013 and 2016, and third in 2014.

In 2016 Jonny finished on the podium in all five of the ITU World Triathlon Series races he featured in leading up to the Grand Final. He famously ran out of steam within a few hundred metres of the finishing line at the Grand Final in Cozumel, Mexico, and was carried over the line by brother, Alistair. He finished second in the race, and second in the ITU World Series, missing out on the world title by just four points to Mario Mola of Spain.

Jonny has been a valuable member of Mixed Relay teams. He has been part of Great Britain’s winning teams at the ITU World Championships in 2011, 2012 and 2014. He helped Team England win Commonwealth Gold in 2014 and silver in 2018. 

Jonny completed a degree in History at Leeds University in summer 2012. He achieved a 2:1. He has also been awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Law by the University of Leeds (2013).
