We Could Be Heroes: One Van, Two Blokes and Twelve World Championships : Finely-tuned triathlete Tom Fordyce and hopeless smoker Ben Dirs have made a living blogging about the triumphs and tribulations of sport at its highest level - but they will never be World Champions themselves. Well, unless they can find some really pointless sporting challenges. From the gripping slow-motion drama of the World Sauna Championships to the Cotswold Olympics, in which "competitors, wearing boots, attempt to kick each other," We Could Be Heroes is a collection of brilliantly funny gonzo dispatches from the frontline of sport. If you can race Ben Fogle up a Yorkshire hillside carrying a sack of coal, or kick the shin out of Rory McGrath, you could be the Champion of the World - and what's more, you'll have very, very sore shins, my son.
