John McAvoy - Bank Robber turned Ironman Triathlete


John McAvoy was destined to lead a life of crime. Born in south London, into a family steeped in armed robbery and drug trafficking, the McAvoy name carries weight in the British criminal underworld. Having committed a string of armed robberies, McAvoy spent more than a decade in prison, but with a helping hand from this very show, sport enabled John to leave that life behind and he is now an Ironman athlete.
