September 2016 Brothers In Arms
1 / 1
Exhausted Briton Jonny Brownlee needed to be helped over the finish line by brother Alistair in a dramatic end to the Triathlon World Series in Cozumel, Mexico. Leading with 700m left, Jonny, 26, began to weave over the road in hot and humid conditions. Third-placed Alistair, 28, caught his brother, propping him up for the final couple of hundred metres before pushing him over the line in second place. They were overtaken by South African Henri Schoeman, the eventual winner. Victory in Mexico would have given Jonny the world title, but second place left him just four points behind Mario Mola.
