Malcolm Brown wins UK Coaching Lifetime Achievement Award

More recognition for Malcolm Brown

A career of supporting and guiding athletes to success in endurance sport was recognised last night at the 20th Anniversary UK Coaching Awards, where Malcolm Brown was recognised for his Lifetime Achievement.

While probably best known for his recent work with the Brownlee brothers, the Leeds Triathlon Centre and the development of the Brownlee Centre, Malcolm had previously been Head of Endurance running for UK Athletics and was the Olympic Performance Manager for the Team GB triathlon squad at London 2012.

Malcolm, alongside Jack Maitland, has been instrumental in developing the strength-in-depth of the Leeds squad that has provided many of the medals and championship victories for British triathletes in recent years. Well deserved recognition for the recently retired Malcolm – who, we suspect, won’t be able to stay ‘retired’ for too long!

Malcolm was awarded the MBE in the Queens New Years Honours List for 2013 and awarded an honorary Doctorate in Sport Science by Leeds Metropolitan University in the same year.
