An Unlikely Champion
An Unlikely Champion redefines winning. It will show you how to adopt a champion’s mindset, carve out your unique excellence and achieve success in any endeavor.
Ironman champion Lisa Bentley chronicles her path from “no-talent” high school runner to champion triathlete, and her transition from hiding her cystic fibrosis to seeing it as a gift that enables her to bring hope to others and meaning to her own career greater than any found on a racecourse.
But An Unlikely Champion is not about winning races. It’s not about cystic fibrosis. It’s about winning in life, about being the best you can be with the cards you’ve been dealt. It is about finding a path to fulfillment even when every path looks impassable. It is about having the courage to get out of your comfort zone, to never stop learning and to turn seemingly inevitable failure into victory.
An Unlikely Champion demonstrates how everyone can harness their inner fire to find their true purpose, achieve their goals and become world class, no matter what the field.

I have read “An Unlikely Champion” from back to front more times than I can count.
Lisa Bentley’s story is truly inspiring, and gives hope to CFers and non CFers alike. Whether you race triathlons or not, Lisa’s book is a lovely reflection of, and lesson in, living life without excuses, with huge positivity and extraordinary mental toughness.
Personally, Lisa’s story and lessons helped, more than anything, to get through an incredibly tough period in my life. Her lessons so powerful that I now refer to any tricky situation as a “Lisa Moment” – an opportunity to rise above the tricky situation with hope and positivity.
An Unlikely Champion is a truly special book that everyone, athlete or not, will gain so much from reading.
