Trinity School and the whole of John Whitgift Foundation would like to congratulate Alex Yee on winning both Silver and Gold medals at the Tokyo Olympics.
Alex (23), from Lewisham, was one of the first champions of the Trinity School Triathlon in 2013 and his achievement gives inspiration to all who take part in the event.
Alex won Silver in the Men’s Triathlon, followed by Gold in the Triathlon Mixed Relay. Each of the four competitors (Alex, Jess Learmonth, Jonny Brownlee and Georgia Taylor-Brown) completed a challenging 300m swim, alongside a 6.7km bike ride and a 2,000m run.
The Trinity Triathlon was established in 2011 as a youth legacy event inspired by the London 2012 Olympics. It would not have been possible without the cooperation Crystal Palace Triathlon club, who mentored us every year since 2011. Many of their club members have officiated and their members have competed, including Alex Yee. The next Trinity Triathlon is scheduled for June 26 2022 and we hope to welcome back former competitors and also those new to the event.
Well done Alex and all of TEAM GB for their fantastic achievements!
