There could be no other decision – but it’s great to have it confirmed through the formal channels.

After his brilliant victory just over a week ago at the AJ Bell World Triathlon Championship Series Leeds, Alex Yee’s participation next month at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games has been formally confirmed today by British Triathlon.

“I know it’s a cliché, but I’m over the moon. I was massively inspired after watching London 2012 in my home city, and now to be selected to represent Team GB after the delay, covid and the challenges everyone has been through, I am delighted.

“It’s been a whirlwind since Leeds last weekend and it’s all coming round pretty quickly. I’m going to get my head down for the next few weeks and prepare as best I can!”

Alex will now join the previously selected athletes, Jess Learmonth, Georgia Taylor-Brown, Vicky Holland and Jonathan Brownlee.
