Book : Born to Perform by Ger Hartmann

This book by Ger Hartmann went on relase on the 31st of October. As a physical therapist based in Limerick, he has worked with many of the world's greatest athletes, including Sonia O'Sullivan, Kelly Holmes and Paula Radcliffe, as well as with a number of Irish rugby, athletic and GAA stars.

In a recent preview in the Irish Times, Ian O'Riordan wrote..."Born to Perform is as much about the lives of others as it is about Hartmann’s life. He is our energetic and jaunty tour guide through the pioneering years of triathlon, when Hartmann himself won seven Irish titles between 1984 and 1991, and armed with amazing observation and total recall, he later walks us through the sporting lives not just of our own Sonia O’Sullivan and Eamonn Coghlan, Seán Óg Ó hAilpín and Séamus Moynihan, but the likes of Radcliffe and Kelly Holmes and also many of the great Kenyan runners, such as the mighty Douglas Wakiihuri and Moses Kiptanui."
