There’s no questioning Ali’s fighting spirit. After narrowly missing out on a medal at London 2012, he came back four years later and earned himself a silver.
He'll be putting the same passion into his glory push/run home and will be giving his teammates, swimmer Lauren and cyclist Darren, the lift they need to succeed.

Our ambassador and a Celebrity Team Captain will be swapping her horse for a recumbent trike and taking on the Celebrity Superhero Tri and the Full Superhero Tri.
