Rownlee brothers: The 2016 WTS season ends in a dramatic fashion What A Year

Posted by Anup Baral September 20, 2016 : Jonny was leading but struggled in the closing stages and had to be held up by his brother, who was third, before being pushed over the line in second Dazed with heat stroke and struggling even to stand, Jonny Brownlee had to be helped over the line by brother Alistair in Mexico as the World Triathlon Series came to a dramatic close. Alistair, who pushed Jonny over the line ahead of him in second, said the condition his brother was in was "as close to death as you can be in sport" had he not received immediate medical attention at the finish line.
Jonny went into the final race of the season in Cozumel, Mexico, in second place in the standings behind Spaniard Mario Mola, with Olympic champion Alistair out of contention having missed earlier races. Rio silver winner Jonny needed to win the race and for Mola to finish no higher than fourth, and that was exactly what looked set to happen after the brothers had again pushed the pace hard on the swim and bike legs.
