Triathlete Helps His BROTHER Across The Finish Line

If you thought the moment when two runners finished a race together after falling was the only great bit of sportsmanship we’d see this year, think again!

Triathlon brothers from the UK Alistair Jonathan Brownlee were racing in the final world championship race in Mexico when heat exhaustion hit Jonno about one kilometer away from the finish line.

Rather than finishing and getting the series championship trophy on offer, Alistair decided to not go full ‘Et Tu Brute’ from roman times, gave up the win, and helped his brother out to finish the race.

Now now, shed no tears for young Jonathan Brownlee, he recovered enough in hospital to not only thank his brother, but to also have a bit of a joke at himself.
