Ironman of India is not fictional but real. One must know the multi-talented Milind Soman who is competent to be all actor, model, producer and sportsperson

Most of us dismiss at first glance of this near impossible feat.  Some laggards may cast serious doubts of those who achieved it. But truth be told unperturbedly.

Swimming, cycling and running individually are very energy intensive workouts.   Anybody could rarely think of achieving something with a mix of these three disciplines.   

In this world of achievers, only few would carve out a path for others to follow.  There the  manliness is worshiped if you could show the stamina of superman.

But  to think at this level,  you need to have  combat fitness for  a dip into this competition.

If you are agile,  age matters little.  The strong will power  do wonders here.

Here is a  50 year old man  who meets all the above superlatives.   He is a model turned  actor and one time national level swimmer.  Milind Soman who took part in  Ironman Triathlon in Zurich, Switzerland on 19 July  this year has set a new benchmark of fitness in the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world.

Ironman Triathlon is  organized by the World Triathlon Corporation consisting of 3.86 km swim, 180.25 km bicycle ride and a marathon of 42.2 km run without any break.   Milind clocked this event in a record 15 hours and 19 minutes.

At near 6 feet,  Milind is a very charming man in his younger years.  I could vividly remember Milind’s impressive appearance at   the Hindi pop number ‘Made in India’ sung by  my favourite Alisha Chinai in 1990s.  When asked his reaction after winning this, Milind said I wanted to gift myself something special in my 50th year and I am glad I could do this,”

Inspiring personalities give fitting lessons to the world !
