Brownlee suffers left Achilles tear
He still plans to compete in San Diego in May.
The BBC reports that Great Britain’s Alistair Brownlee, the current ITU World Champion, has suffered a small tear to his left Achilles tendon.
Brownlee is wearing an air cast as a precaution, and fully expects to race at ITU World Triathlon San Diego on Saturday May 12.
“Obviously this isn’t an ideal situation, but I can say that this has been his best winter’s training, probably ever. We had scheduled a break from training at the end of the winter period anyway, so I am not overly concerned at this stage,” said Malcolm Brown, one of Brownlee’s personal coaches and British Triathlon’s Olympic performance group manager.
