Yorkshire terrain inspires Brownlees


Olympic medallists Alistair and Jonny Brownlee said they would not be where they are today without the "inspiring" Yorkshire landscape they train on.

The Leeds triathletes, who won gold and bronze respectively in front of a huge crowd at Hyde Park, said the region's "fantastic terrain" inspired their training sessions.

Alistair said winning a gold medal was "absolutely amazing" and having his brother next to him on the podium made the day more special.

Jonny said his 15-second penalty for mounting his bike too quickly was "a little harsh" but he was pleased with his bronze medal and spoke of the "incredible" support given to them by people from Yorkshire.
