Non Stanford and Jonathan Brownlee were named British Triathlon Elite Triathletes of the Year at the 2013 awards dinner in Birmingham on Saturday.

Following a successful year for Stanford, which saw her crowned women’s world champion at Hyde Park in September, the 24-year-old picked up the top awards at the ceremony, which also included the Olympic Athlete of the Year title and Peter Holmes Award for Inspirational Performance in International Competition.

“It’s a massive honor to win,” she said.”I’ve sat in the audience for the last few years and I’ve been in awe of the athletes who have received this award.”So to be on the other side and be the recipient is a testimony to hard work and perseverance, and it’s also a continued testimony of the quality of the team up in Leeds.”

London 2012 Olympic bronze medalist Brownlee took the men’s award after narrowly missing out on the International Triathlon Union’s (ITU) world title earlier this year, finishing second behind Spain’s Francisco Javier Gómez Noya following a sprint finish at Hyde Park.
