Alistair Brownlee picks teammates for the Brownlee Challenge

One swimmer and one runner picked to help take on Jonny tomorrow

Two winners have been named in the recent Twitter competition to find two amateur triathletes willing to help injured Alistair Brownlee take on his younger brother in the Brownlee Tri taking place in Yorkshire tomorrow (21 September).

Mark Young (@uk_triharder) has been chosen as the delegated swimmer for the Brownlee Challenge Relay Team, swimming 400m against Jonathan Brownlee in the super-sprint distance exhibition race.

Alistair will then do the 10km cycle part of the race against Jonny, before passing on the baton to James McCormack (@James3tri) who will take on the final 2.5km run part of the challenge.

Can Jonathan Brownlee beat three pairs of legs tomorrow? Let us know your predictions in the comments box below!
