Living the Dream

BBC Assembly about dedication.

Ask the assembly if anyone knows the name of a sport that includes all running, swimming and cycling. Answer - a triathlon is made up of three parts - a swim, a cycle and a run. An Olympic triathlon course includes a 1.5km swim, 40km cycle ride and a 10km run. It is a test of stamina and endurance.

Alistair Brownlee is a World Champion triathlete who won the World Championships when he was aged 21 and has been competing since he was at school. He lives and trains in Yorkshire in the north-west of England. One of his younger brothers, Jonathan, is also a talented triathlete and often competes in the same races as Alistair.

Alistair trains for 30 hours per week. Ask the assembly how much time they spend watching TV or playing sport per week and compare it to Alistair's training. He often swims at least a mile before breakfast, cycles between 15 and 80 miles and runs between four and 15 miles every day.
