Celebrities and their triathlon dream come true…

celebrities triathlon


Many celebrities today have proved to all of us that they do not only have a passion for spotlights, but they can take triathlon competitions pretty seriously too.  Some of them, have already proved that when it comes to passions, they can be just like the rest of us.


Celebrities participating triathlons, or even Ironman which is a triathlon on which every athlete has some specific amounts of miles to do for each triathlon competition  (112  miles  cycling, 2.4 miles swim and 26.3 miles run), have left all of us with some good impression by proving their abilities and commitment. Even though in most cases, their main reason to participate is to raise money for charity. Well, it’s not a bad reason at all…


Here we’ve created a list with some of the most impressive celebrity triathlon competitions:


Gordon Ramsay

Participating in the Ironman World Championship in Kona, might be his biggest accomplishment beside being one of the world most entertaining chefs. When participating and being able to finish this strong competition, he was 47 years old.


Jennifer Lopez

She might be one of the most beautiful actress and singer, making millions each year, but she has already proved us to be a strong competitor when she makes up her mind.


She has completed the Nautica Malibu Triathlon back in 2008 in just 2 hours and 23 minutes, raising over 127,000$ for charity. Her biggest inspirations to participate on that triathlon were her newborn twins. She started training 5 months after she gave birth to them and all the money she collected went to the Children’s Hospital of LA.



Matthew Mcconaughey
