Day Jobs: Undergraduate and Masters Students
Not content with dominating the triathlon competition, the Brownlee brothers balance their sporting commitment with academic study. Gold medal winner Alistair is studying for his Masters in Finance at Leeds Metropolitan University. His younger brother Jonny has not only followed in his footsteps by winning bronze in the same event, despite incurring a 15-second penalty for mounting his bike too quickly, he’s also an undergraduate history student at the University of Leeds. Alistair briefly studied Medicine at Cambridge but dropped out to allow more time to focus on training.
