Alistair Brownlee announced as Team England Flag Bearer

Dan Halksworth to carry Jersey flag too

With the opening ceremony of the 2018 Commonwealth Games taking place tomorrow (Wednesday), more news of triathletes – past and present – receiving additional national honours and recognition.

Ahead of the Games, you may remember than Non Stanford was named as the Team Wales Captain (more HERE), which she described as ““An honour that’s difficult to articulate”.

This morning, Team England have announced that reigning double-Gold medallist from Glasgow 2014, Alistair Brownlee, will carry the flag at the opening ceremony which will take place at the Carrara Stadium.

In further news, twice IRONMAN UK Champion, Dan Halksworth, will be the Team Jersey flag bearer. Represeting Jersey in the Cycling Time Trial, Dan previously competed at the Commonwealth Games in swimming (2006, Melbourne) and triathlon (2014, Glasgow). He’ll become the first Commonwealth Games athlete to have competed at three different sports over the Games.

Congratulations Non, Alistair and Dan on being selected for such recognition.
