Stars to take on Tough Mudder in Sky Sports Mix series

Sky Sports will broadcast an original ‘Mission Mudder’ series featuring six Olympic stars competing in three ultimate Tough Mudder challenges.

Airing this summer on Sky Sports Mix, the series will follow six popular athletes joining forces to take on three extreme Tough Mudder events, competing against some of the best teams and individuals in the world.

The celebrity team is made up of Welsh taekwondo star and double gold medallist Jade Jones, former World and European indoor 400m champion Perri Shakes-Drayton and cycling’s World silver medallist Jess Varnish.

Also joining the line-up are Team GB’s Aimee Fuller (snowboarding), Ashley McKenzie (Judo) and Anthony Fowler (boxing).

The athletes will team up to create an ‘all-star’ style team competing on some of the most gruelling endurance and obstacle courses in the UK and the USA.

Produced by Wilson Worldwide Productions, Mission Mudder will also explore the athletes’ personal stories, their physical and mental preparation for three demanding events and the challenges of working together to conquer the unfamiliar Tough Mudder challenge.

Double Olympic gold medallist and Mission Mudder participant, Jade Jones, said: “The series is guaranteed to be exciting, emotional and unlike anything you have seen before. I am looking forward to the mental and physical challenge but also to working with what promises to be such a great team.

“Mission Mudder is a really exciting project to be a part of and I can’t wait for UK fans to follow us on our journey on Sky Sports Mix.”
Mission Mudder will sit alongside a range of extreme sports on the channel which also includes drone racing, snowboarding and cliff diving.
