Louise Minchin

Dare to Tri

Dare to Tri tells the amazing story of Louise Minchin’s journey from the BBC Breakfast sofa to representing Great Britain at the World Triathlon Championships. A warm and wonderfully honest account that will both entertain and inspire, Louise explains how she rediscovered competitive sport after 30 years and took her first tentative steps as a triathlete. In a story encompassing equal measures of determination and self-doubt, Louise has to overcome personal nerves, a brutal training regime, the odd bike crash and the occasional drama. Her adventure as she strives to represent Great Britain in triathlon is an inspiration for sporting late-starters everywhere.

Louise Minchin is one of the UK’s best-known news presenters and broadcasters. For more than six years she has been the anchor of BBC Breakfast, the UK’s most popular breakfast television programme, watched by over six million viewers a day.
