Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, from Great Britain, are brothers. They're also Olympic triathletes.

Alistair got gold for the men's triathlon in London 2012 and Jonny got bronze.

At the end of the Rio men's triathlon Alistair Brownlee was so far ahead of everyone else in the race he stopped running and walked to the finish line, to soak in the atmosphere.


Alistair and Johnny Brownlee have a brother, Edward. I hope he’s sitting at home on his couch, necking a beer and chucking stuff at the TV.
