Tri documentary wants universal appeal

An American documentary, The Triumph Project, is aiming to showcase the ups and downs triathletes face when training and competing in the sport.


Jeff Fairbanks, who’s producing the documentary, hopes that this will inspire people to take up triathlons, trying to reassure newcomers that the sport isn’t as daunting as it can look.

Before trying triathlon he believed that the sport was un-relatable, claiming that it seemed unrealistic for people with a job and family.
