What I wasn’t really allowed to tell you during the weeks leading up to Tough Mudder Sydney is that the Channel Seven Today Tonight team, lead by Bryan Seymour, were interested in my Tough Mudder mission.
The crew were definitely planning on filming the Tough Mudder day itself, but also spent time in the lead up grabbing footage of me training, running and of course interacting with my beautiful family.
All up I’d say they would have ended up with around 10 hours of footage, including a bunch from a GoPro camera strapped to Dirk Venter’s chest. Well, at least it was attached most of the time!
I take my hat off to Bryan and his team who somehow turned all the footage, including a 10 minute interview with Renee and I, into a compelling four minute TV story . I now have a new insight about, and respect for, this form of journalism and story telling!
