Longlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year 2012. For over a decade, Dave Scott and Mark Allen were locked in one of the fiercest rivalries sport has ever known. The men, who seemed able to force their bodies into achieving the impossible, dominated the nascent sport of triathlon, continually pushing each other to ever-greater feats of athleticism and endurance. On October 14 1989 the battle between Scott and Allen reached its peak at the 13th Hawaii Ironman, when the pair raced the 140.6-mile event side by side, for eight straight hours at breakneck speed. The eventual winner's margin of victory was a scant 58 seconds. In a profound psychological portrait of these two men, and a gripping exploration of the aching gap between triumph and defeat, Iron War tells triathlon's greatest ever story.
