Apolo Ohno, the most decorated U.S. Winter Olympian ever, completed the Ironman World Championships in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, in 9 hours, 52 minutes, 27 seconds, on Saturday.
Ohno, 32, swam 2.4 miles (1:00:29), biked 112 miles (5:07:15) and ran a marathon (3:36:41) back to back to back. He won eight Olympic medals from 2002 to 2010 but never skated an individual distance greater than 1500m. Ohno also won “Dancing with the Stars.”
Ohno’s time was much faster than a pair of celebrities from last year’s event — former NFL wide receiver Hines Ward (13:08:15) and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay (14:04:08).
Germany’s Sebastian Kienle won the Ironman World Championship for the first time in 8:14:18.
Australia’s Mirinda Carfrae won the women’s race for the third time, in 9:00:55.
