About this product
- DescriptionThe 1989 Ironman[registered] World Championship was the greatest race ever in endurance sports. In a spectacular duel that became kwn as the Iron War, the world's two strongest endurance athletes - and its fiercest rivals - raced side by side at world-record pace for a gruelling 138 miles in relentless heat. Iron War is a deeply personal epic that explains how over the course of an eight-hour race, Dave Scott and Mark Allen pushed themselves and each other beyond the kwn limits of human endurance. Sports journalist Matt Fitzgerald goes far beyond the race itself to explore the lives of these legendary rivals. Fitzgerald learns how two men so different in personality prepared for the showdown that left one battling his inner demons to emerge victorious and one devastated on the pavement and unable to forgive his loss. Weaving an examination of mental toughness into a gripping tale of athletic adventure, Iron War is a thrilling and thought-provoking portrait of the human will. It is a jacketed hardback with two 16-page colour photo sections with 50 photographs.
