Congratulaltions To Alistair Brownlee

The leader of Leeds City Council Councillor Judith Blake, said:

"This year Alistair cemented his position as one of the greatest triathletes the world has ever seen by winning his second Olympic gold medal in Rio, so it's fitting that his efforts have again been recognised by the British public, this time with second place in the BBC SPOTY awards.

"It is an unbelievable achievement and well deserved recognition of Alistair's talent, dedication and hard work. We will never forget the moment that Alistair also this year stopped to help his brother Jonny over the finishing line in a race after he was suffering from heat exhaustion. This was a moment that captured the hearts of people right around the world and typified the type of person he is - it is just one of the many reasons why Leeds and Yorkshire is so proud of him.

"We would also like to offer our massive congratulations to the amazing Nicola Adams and Kadeena Cox who also featured on the SPOTY shortlist and have played such a huge part in putting our city on the global sporting map."

Simon Hinchliffe, Bradford Grammar School Headmaster said:

"Words cannot express how thrilled and proud we are that Alistair Brownlee was a contender for Sports Personality of the Year 2016 and the two former Bradford Grammar School brothers also won a brilliant Olympic triathlon gold and silver in Rio. What a year for them both!"

"They show wonderful drive and commitment to excellence that started during their time at BGS and present an image of sport that is wonderful and represents all that is good in running, cycling and swimming. They are a proud example for our school, for Bradford, for Yorkshire and for Great Britain."
