I gotta say everytime I see these two young chaps they make me proud to be a honorary Yorkshireman (born t'other side of t'ill.).
Both competing at the Triathlon World Series in Mexico Johnathan legs gave way at 700m to go and his brother Alistair did this.




He could have come first but instead did what any Brother would do..help him over the line good news is Johnathan is making a full recovery in hospital.
But they may get disqualified because they broke the rules


www.bbc.co.uk...

Made me shed a tear remembering my own brother...nowt like brotherly love.
Anyhow top chaps inspirational ones also.

Proper Bulldog spirit reverberates throughout the pair of them.

'I just wished he'd paced himself properly' said Alistair. Legendary!!

Their parents must be very proud, we are, so they must be bursting.

I hope they never need to buy a drink again after producing those two lads.
I would buy em a pint everytime I saw em down my local.

Most definitely, it's the least they deserve.

The rules of a race are not as important as the rules of brotherhood.

Victory is fleeting, but the bond is stronger than avarice or ambition in any firm companion In life, be they blood related or otherwise. The consequences of losing the race would not have been as severe to him, as the idea of his brother not making it to the finish. That is admirable.

Given how phenomenally successful these two are he only thing that surprises me is that he didn't manage to win the race while carrying his brother.

A genuinely nice sporting moment.

He said in an interview he would have stopped and helped anyone that close to the finish line It happened to him and he knows how it feels.
