Top triathlon tips from Brownlee brother Alistair paid off for fundraising trio Neil Preston, Tom Sharp and Eoghan Given from Leeds when they took on the gruelling Sundowner Iron Man challenge last weekend.

All three, who are members of Leeds Bradford Triathlon Club, completed the challenge in less than six hours (Tom Sharp, 5:39; Neil Preston, 5:42; Eoghan Given 5:43) – swimming 1,900 metres, cycling 90 kilometres and running 21.2 kilometres.

They raised £750 for Newlife the Charity for Disabled Children, to help provide specialist equipment like wheelchairs and walkers for mobility and car seats and beds for safety. To donate to the team visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sundownerneil
