Dare to tri: my journey from the BBC Breakfast sofa to GB team triathlete

See all formats and editions

The amazing story of TV presenter Louise Minchin's journey from the BBC Breakfast sofa to representing Great Britain at the World Triathlon Championships.

This is a warmly written and wonderfully honest adventure-through-sport that will both entertain and inspire. 'Dare to Tri' charts Louise Minchin's incredible journey as she rediscovers competitive sport after 30 years and takes her first tentative steps as a triathlete.

As her performances improve, there's a realisation that representing Team GB in her age group is a possibility and the book tells of her plucky attempt to achieve this almost-unthinkable goal.

It is an adventure not without its challenges as Louise has to overcome personal nerves, a brutal training regime, the odd bike crash and the occasional drama such as swimming with jellyfish and getting stuck in a loo before a race.
