Penguin has signed the Olympic medal winning British athletes Alistair Brownlee and Jonathan Brownlee to write a personal training book.
The two brothers took the gold and the bronze medals for the Olympic Triathlon at the 2012 Summer Olympics, making them the first British brothers to win medals in individual competition at an Olympics since 1900. In Swim, Bike, Run, the brothers will give tips on training, psychology and performance interwoven with stories from their own lives.
Viking secured world rights to the book from Professional Sports Group. The book is slated for release by Viking in June 2013 in time for the triathlon season. The book will be released as an eBook and in print.
