Synopsis

'He's the world's fittest man - it's official.' - The GuardianHe's gone 110 rounds with 10 opponents to win the World Kumite Karate Boxing Championships.He's got the world record for the number of press-ups done in a year, he did over 1.5 million - that's over 4,000 a day!He's got the fastest time for running a marathon with a 50lb backpack. There's nobody as tough as Paddy Doyle!As a young man he was a hell-raiser. He would pick fights and get in trouble with the law. His competitive nature combined with a terrible rebellious streak threatened to tip Paddy over the edge.A chance purchase of The Guinness Book of Records spurred Paddy into action: he knew immediately that he could beat, hands down, many of the records listed.Paddy's alter ego 'Iron Man' was born. He channelled all of his destructive energy into becoming a winner. His record of achievement is awesome. To date, Paddy Doyle holds 125 national, European and world fitness and martial arts records. Some of the toughest records he has smashed are: 1303 back-of-hands press ups in one hour; a 50 mile run wearing a 40 lb back pack in 11 hours and 58 minutes and an incredible 5,000 sit ups with a 50 lb plate in five hours.This is the story of a man who is a true champion in both heart and mind, whose mental and physical determination to succeed have taken him from the back-streets of Birmingham to the brilliance of a world champion.
