Two-time Olympic medallist Jonny Brownlee met local children yesterday at York Sport Village at the University of York to help deliver the York Sport Junior Triathlon training programme.

Launched in 2018, the programme gives children of all abilities the chance to learn and develop skills in cycling, running and triathlon with additional optional swim sessions, focussing on skills such as open-water technique, drafting and group swimming. 

Yorkshire born Jonny is recognised as one of the World’s best triathletes, having scooped the Bronze medal in the London 2012 Olympics, and Silver in the 2016 Rio Olympics just behind his brother Alistair.

Alongside Coach Alex Wormald and his team, Jonny spent time coaching the children and joined in with a number of fun team challenges.
