The 31-year-old British triathlete, Jonathan Brownlee, gold medal in the test mixed relay triathlon Tokyo 2020 has hinted that this was not his last participation in one Olympics

Jonathan bronze in the London Games and silver in Rio, it seems that he considers not leaving the Olympic distance and is tempted to go to the Paris Games.

Has winning the gold changed my mind? I would be lying if I said no »

Brownlee's plan after Tokyo was to start competing in medium and long distance events, but in an interview with the AP agency he commented “Has winning the gold changed my mind? I'd be lying if I said no

I came to Tokyo saying this would be my last Games… But I crossed the finish line, looked at my times and thought 'wow!'. I got the fastest partial of the day.

Then you start thinking 'what if…?'. It's only three years. …. The Commonwealth Games are next year. So I went from thinking "definitely" to "probably".

"If I want to fight for the medals in Paris, I have to commit myself completely."

The Brit does not rule out trying RH or LD events and then focusing on the Olympic distance entirely.

"Qualifying for the games is a two-year process, so it would be in 2023, but maybe next year I can ».

We will have to wait and see what the British finally decides that if he decides to go to the middle distance, he will give way to one of the best triathletes on the circuit, his compatriot Alex Yee, silver in Tokyo.
