Alistair said: “It’s been a fantastic year for the sport and I’m looking forward to celebrating the team’s achievements in Rio.

“The British Triathlon Awards Dinner is always a fantastic evening and it’ll be great to catch up with my teammates in my home town next month.”

The Rio heroes will also be taking part in a question and answer session during the evening, led by BBC Breakfast presenter and amateur triathlete, Louise Minchin.

The awards evening will be hosted by BBC sports reporter Vassos Alexander.

Vassos said: “It’s an honour to be part of the British Triathlon Awards Dinner following a hugely successful year for the sport.

“There have been some fantastic achievements across all levels of triathlon throughout 2016, reaching a crescendo in Rio at the Olympic and Paralympic Games, and I’m greatly looking forward to re-living them next month in Leeds.”
