TRACK RECORD

Darren Campbell
with Trystan Bevan

Olympic gold medallist Darren Campbell is one of Britain’s most successful and popular athletes, yet despite his prominence as a public figure the true story that lies behind his fame and success has not been made public, until now.

Track Record tells Darren Campbell’s remarkable story as an athlete, businessman and broadcaster. From painfully humble and deprived beginnings in a father-less home on one of Europe’s most notorious inner-city estates, Darren reveals his life growing up on the streets of Moss Side, Manchester and how breaking out of a cycle of misbehaviour and petty crime via his athletic ability transformed his life.
