Alistair Brownlee, 22, is making good headway to recovery from a femoral stress fracture. The reigning ITU Champion is now running about to get into shape for his 2010 season.
It was in late February when Brownlee was diagnosed to have a femoral stress fracture. This made him sit out the Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU Championship Series in Sydney as well as in Seoul. Brownlee is now in training and hopes that he will be ready in time for the Series in Madrid.
Brownlee shares, “I am at last doing all three sports and am progressing my running slowly. I have also been doing a lot of rehab and gym work. I hope to be training normally in about three weeks time, and then I will make a decision about racing in Madrid.”
Brownlee currently holds the title as the first triathletes to win world championships in three categories, Junior (2006), U-23 (2008) and Elite (2009). He also has five Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship wins to his belt.
The young Brit can recover his world title should he be able to race and garner points in Madrid, London, Kitzbuhel and Budapest for the finals plus two World Cup races.
