'How long do I have.' 'Without treatment, eight months, a year at the outside.' Top steeplechase jockey, Bob Champion's world fell apart when they told him he had cancer. Weak, constantly ill from the drugs used to combat the disease, he was written off by the world of racing. But he kept on fighting. For Bob Champion had a dream which spurred him on - not just to live, not just to ride again, but to win the most glittering prize in the world of racing... The Grand National. Champions... The True Story of a man who refused to give up his dream.
