Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee's swim, cycle and runs to gold and bronze, respectively, has seen them hailed as local heroes in Leeds, as ITV Calendar reports.
Their dedication and commitment to their sport is astonishing, and they are perfect ambassadors and role models for Leeds. It is wonderful to see that rewarded with this well-deserved success. We cannot wait to give them a heroes’ welcome when they come back to Leeds to celebrate.
