Lizi Brooke is a coach and long-distance triathlete who holds five UK time trial course records. In her first ever 100-mile time trial in 2021, she crossed the finish line with a blistering 15-minute lead and broke the course record by three minutes. She is also fleet of foot, having recorded a sub-3 hour marathon personal best. At this year’s Ironman 70.3 Oman Lizi ran well off a great bike ride in high temperatures to win with an 18-minute lead, while she won a rainy and windy Ironman Tallin last year with an eight-minute lead. The way she puts bike and run together rain or shine will push Nicola Spirig further and faster toward Sub8.
The documentary showcases not only the audacious yet ultimately successful attempt to race the full distance of triathlon in under seven hours for men and under eight hours for women, but also the two-year build-up leading into the challenge following all six athletes involved.
Vice world champion Kat Matthews today became the first woman to finish a full distance triathlon in under eight hours
