The Transplant Triathlete: The Story of How One Man Went from Illness to Ironman [9781785311963]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
An ironman triathlon is seen as the hardest one-day endurance event in the world. Consisting of a 3.8km swim, a 180km bike ride, followed by a full marathon, it is a huge undertaking for anyone, never mind a rookie with chronic kidney disease. Transplant Triathlete is Diccon Driver's story: an amateur triathlete who refused to let kidney failure stop him from racing. Even after doctors told him his dream of finishing an ironman was impossible, he didn't give up. With just 20 per cent kidney function, he proved them wrong to complete his first ironman. Eight weeks later the disease causes his kidneys to fail completely and he starts dialysis to stay alive. Now in need of a transplant, his brother steps forward as a live donor to give Diccon his life back. But will the operation be a success? And most importantly to Diccon, will he ever be fit enough to race again?
AUTHOR: Transplant Triathlete is Diccon Driver's first book. After learning he had kidney disease he decided to take up triathlon to keep fit. This led to his discovery of the ironman triathlon. Even at his sickest he continued to race. And now after a transplant from his brother he's back racing again. His new goal is to be the first kidney transplant patient in the world to compete in ten ironman 70.3 races.
