Thomas Hutchinson was forced out of elite rowing due to a bulging disc in his back. Turning to cycling under the guidance of Matt Bottrill, he focused on time trialling. After only three years, he had set the second-fastest ever recorded 100-mile time trial in the UK and logged the fasted average speed over 50-mile, 100-mile and 12-hour time trials to claim the 2021 Best British All Rounder award.
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.
Two-time world champion and Olympic gold medalist Kristian Blummenfelt made history today, becoming the first man to complete a full distance triathlon under seven hours.
