BBC Sport - Paratriathlon: Jenny Manners & Alison Patrick aim for gold

The athletes helping others win gold

BBC's Get Inspired finds out how guide Jenny Manners is helping Alison Patrick aim for Paratriathlon glory when the sport makes its debut at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro.

In the PT5 category for blind and visually impaired competitors, athletes and guides swim 750m together, side by side, tethered by the ankle.

They go through transition together before completing the 20km bike leg on a tandem, then tether again with an elastic cord for the 5km run to the finish.
