The documentary follows the build-up to the PTO’s flagship event, The Collins Cup.
The Professional Triathletes Organisation (PTO) has commissioned Noah Media Group to create a long-form documentary, Beyond Human, that follows the organisation’s triathletes as they prepare for its flagship event – The Collins Cup.
The Collins Cup is a new race format, to be held in Slovakia, that aims to bring out the excitement, rivalry, drama and personalities of the sport of triathlon to attract a wider fan base.
The story in Beyond Human begins with Lionel Sanders (CAN), Sebastien Kienle (GER) and Heather Jackson (USA) giving the Noah production team unfiltered access to their training and personal lives as they end a challenging year with the PTO 2020 Championship at CHALLENGEDAYTONA.
The film exposes what it takes to be the very best in one of the toughest sports on the planet.
Sam Renouf, chief executive officer of the PTO, said: “We are excited to have Noah as a partner to create innovative and compelling storytelling and best-in-class content. Sport is about caring who wins, loses, succeeds and fails. To care about an athlete, you have to know about their backstory in order to have an emotional connection. Noah will use their proven storytelling expertise to convey the extraordinary stories of our amazing professional triathletes to a wider audience”.
John McKenna, CEO of Noah Media group, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with the PTO on what we hope will be the first in a number of standout, global collaborations. We are thrilled to be a part of the PTO’s clear and ambitious vision for the future of triathlon through Beyond Human – a documentary showcasing the incredible stories of unique athletes at the pinnacle of the sport.”
