Bio

Since developing an early reputation for delivering sub 14-minute 5Ks, British 10,000m Champion Alex Yee has proved he is no slouch in the water or on the bike either. Junior European titles and 5th place in the Cozumel Grand Final in 2016 hadn’t prepared the triathlon world for what was to come. A serious bike accident in his first World Triathlon Cup in Cagliari may then have set Alex back temporarily, but to make his return to racing on that very same course 12 months later and finish in the top 10 was a hint of what was to come.

Third place in Weihai at the end of 2018 was his first taste of a World Cup podium but it was in the 2019 season opener, one week before his 21st birthday, that Yee took a first World Cup gold in Cape Town and then a silver medal at the World Triathlon Series race in Abu Dhabi, establishing himself as one of the sport’s hottest young prospects.

That promise was delivered upon in grand style in 2021 as he first won WTCS Leeds to ensure his place on the Tokyo 2020 start line and then produced a brilliant Olympic race to take silver on the biggest stage of them all before anchoring the GB Mixed Relay team to Olympic gold. Alex went on to finish 2021 third overall in the World Triathlon Championship Series.
