The Norseman has been dubbed ‘The Toughest Triathlon on the Planet’.
In Norway each year, some of the best triathletes in the world compete to try and win the coveted,
‘Norseman Black’ shirt.
In 2019, Olympian, endurance expert and five times Iron Man, Professor Greg Whyte decided that he would attempt to add this hard won prize to his already incredible list of achievements.
At 52 years of age though, he would be one of the most senior competitors ever to enter this most punishing of of races.
The film follows Greg over an 8 month period, as he prepares for the race, conditioning both body and mind but also dealing with the types of injuries that a lifetime in sport, and age, inevitably presents.
‘Black & Whyte’ provides a unique training blueprint for any athlete looking to push themselves further and harder.
Perhaps most importantly though, this is a film that shows that with the right preparation and mental resilience, age is nothing more than a number.
