Natural Born Winners

What’s it like to be at the top of your game? Adored by millions, master of your sport, king of speed. And what do you do when it’s all over? In Natural Born Winners, four sporting heroes take on some of the most demanding sports in the world. The journey begins when they visit the sport’s place of origin, meet the masters, learn the history and experience it first hand. These challenging sports range from Japanese horseback archery to oil wrestling in Turkey. Or even something as eccentric and notorious as Man Versus Horse, 21 miles of endurance running over some of the most hostile terrain in the UK. The athletes are pitted against one another, each completely out of their comfort zone and pushed to their limits. Will our four sporting heroes encourage each other and grow together or will they descend into a battle of blood, sweat and tears?
