Coach Who Helped Brownlee Brothers To Triathlon Glory

Malcolm Brown

Olympic speaker Malcolm Brown MBE is a Performance Coach based at the Leeds Triathlon Centre who has coached the Olympic medal-winning Brownlee brothers, along with Jack Maitland, since they were teenagers.

A former endurance running coach for UK Athletics, he has coached athletes to international gold medals at Commonwealth, European, World and Olympic level, and was British Triathlon’s Olympic Performance Manager for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Malcolm, who was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List in January 2013 for services to Triathlon and sport, started his career with a degree in Teaching Physical Education and English. The Olympic speaker has worked at four different universities in academic and departmental roles, including the post of Director of Sport at Leeds Metropolitan University from 2002 until 2009.

Whilst at Leeds Met he was asked if he would help two young brothers Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee improve their running speed. The duo have worked with him ever since and, with Malcolm’s support and commitment to their coaching, secured a place in British sporting history, winning gold and bronze in the triathlon at the 2012 Olympics.

As an Olympic speaker, Malcolm is very knowledgeable on issues including the highs and lows of developing young athletes and how you can successfully deliver them into senior ranks without burnout or serious injury problems that may occur during this formative period of their sporting lives.
