Tony Stark (Iron Man)
In 2015, Jan Frodeno from Cologne/Germany made history, becoming the first triathlete, male or female, to win both the Olympic Triathlon Gold and the Ironman World Championship title. He won the Ironman World Championship again in 2016 and in 2019.

While the “official” start date for the Iron-Month Challenge is Saturday, 01 May 2021, we have given some of the participants attending the An Saol Foundation’s NeuroRehab Day Centre a bit of a head start this week.
Pádraig decided to stick with the biathlon version of the Iron-Month this year.
As all athletes, he has his recovery time scheduled in. So yesterday, we went for a long walk. It is the first weekend in Ireland that people can travel beyond the 5k limit anywhere in the county. We decided to go to the reservoir in the Dublin mountains that supplies the city with water, the Bohernabreena Reservoir.
It was a great walk. Blue skies. A fresh, cool breeze. Nearly perfection.
Tomorrow it’ll be back to the Iron-Month Challenge. With a solid performance.
He’s gonna finish it. I trust him more than anyone else.
Because it’s not about how much we’ve lost. It’s about how much we’ve left.
