Two of the heroes of the Olympics demonstrated what humility is all about at the conclusion of the Triathlon World Series in Mexico this week. With brother Jonny I the lead when he succumbed to near collapse, his brother Alistair, in second position, came to his aid. Jonny recounted in a great BBC Interview

  • “’Alistair had the chance to win but threw that away to help me out,’ said Jonny, who led the race until temperatures of 33C got the better of him around 1.5km from the end. ‘I’ll be thankful for the rest of my life. Obviously it takes a very strong and good person to do that. Sometimes in sport we talk about winning being the most important thing in the world. A lot of times it is, but maybe helping a brother out was more important.’"
