IRON MAN
Kalmar, Sweden
​2016
It is 5.50 am on a misty morning in Kalmar. 2500 athletes from around the world wait nervously. 
The Swedish National anthem is sung, goggles are fitted and then they quietly enter the water.
Before them lie


2.4 miles of swimming
112 miles of cycling
26.22 of running 


No break between disciplines. Just pain and determination
Stop

After nearly 9 hours, the winning athlete arrives at the finish line to a heroes welcome.
One by one the remaining competitors struggle in. It gets dark, but still they arrive.

Just one athlete failed to meet the 10pm deadline - but in the eyes of the crowd he was still
