Almost two years after winning the ‘Ironman’ title at a triathlon held in Switzerland in July 2015, model-turned-actor Milind Soman has added another feather to his cap. The fitness-savvy actor has now bagged the title of Ultraman.
The 517.5-kilometer race required each participant to complete a 10 km open water swimming and a 148-kilometre bike ride on the first day, while the second day involved a 276-kilometre bike ride. On the third and final day of the race, participants had to run a stretch of 84-kilometres.
Soman was the only contestant in the event who ran barefoot and took 34 hours and 46 minutes to complete the rigorous events and overall came 41st in the race. Apart from Soman, Abhishek Mishra, Dr Kaustubh Radkar, Prithviraj Patil and Manmadh Rebba were part of the Indian team who too bagged the title.
Soman shared the joyous news with his fans on his Facebook Page along with few pictures from the event.
I’ll probably have to take four-five births to get the grit &determination to be as fit as Milind Soman. His achievements are beyond belief!
