Man On A Misson

IFTA award winning documentary Man on a Mission follows Kenyan runner David Rudisha and his coach, Irish missionary Brother Colm O'Connell as they prepare for the World Championships and ultimately London 2012. Presented by Irish athletics legend Eamonn Coghlan the programme was filmed entirely in Iten, Kenya.

The programme further widens to explore why Kenya has dominated the running world for so long and the lasting legacy Brother Colm has left on Kenyan athletics. Throughout the documentary the messages of opportunity, commitment and effort resonate as we see the sacrifice these Kenyan athletes make until the exciting climax which sees Rudisha strive for gold in the World Championships.,
