A Triathlete Lost A Race To Help His Brother Finish Second (Video)
Posted by Steve on September 20 2016

A British triathlete named Jonny Brownlee was leading a race in Mexico on Sunday, but ran out of steam with a half-mile left.  And it looked like he was about to pass out.

But his brother Alistair Brownlee is also a triathlete, who just won gold in Rio.  And he was right behind him in the race.  So Alistair grabbed his arm, threw it around his neck and basically carried him the rest of the way.  So they finished second and third.

Apparently he did it because Jonny was higher in the overall standings and had a chance to win the season.  But he had to win the race to do it though, so that didn't happen.  But the video of them crossing the finish line is everywhere right now.
