The fact that Brownlee managed to win back-to-back Olympic gold medals (the first triathlete to do so) makes him the greatest Olympic triathlete ever, and there’s really no debating that.
Just about a month after winning the gold medal, Brownlee entered his first swim/run event—the Aquathlon World Championships—and won.

Lange came off the bike in 23rd position then lit up the run course.
Her fourth place the 70.3 World Championships was a surprising loss, but the woman nicknamed the Angry Bird answered her critics (and her own self-doubt) at the Ironman World Championship.

The only major surprise came when relatively unknown competitor, Henri Schoeman, came falling across the finish 36 seconds after Jonathan Brownlee to take the bronze medal.

The months of August, September and October prove it.
