It was none other than Milind Soman who successfully completed the ironman triathlon – being one of very few indians to do so! The actor/model was preparing for this brutal race over the last few months and we couldn’t be more in awe. All his hard work has certainly paid off!
The Ironman Triathlon was held in Zurich on the 19th of July and consists of a 3.86 km swim, a 180.25 km bicycle ride and a 42.2km run which must all be completed under 16 hours… and no, we’re not exaggerating one bit. Milind completed the entire race in a whopping 15 hours and 19 minutes. Here are stats from the race (including those of other indians who took part in the race).
Prior to the race Milind very proudly said,
“Winning the Ironman title will be the best gift when I turn 50 this year.”
And that’s exactly what he did! What a way to start your fiftieth year.
You make us proud Milind – keep inspiring!
