Anders Hofman Laursen completes first-ever Antarctica Ironman


The ‘Iceman’ is the same distance as an Ironman – 3.8K in -2ºC (28.4ºF) water and then 180 km of swimming and a 42.2K marathon on the icy steppes of Antarctica. Unofficial time 40:45:33 according to DR (in Danish), not including a 27-hour snow blizzard bringing the total time up to 72:54:09. Impressive.
