Sean Conway Breaks Ironman World Record

After three months of gruelling Ironman distance triathlons – 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile cycle and 26.22 mile run every day – 42 year old Sean Conway has completed his mission to finish more back-to-back full distance triathlons than any human before.

The goal was to break James ‘Iron Cowboy’ Lawrence’s record by completing a long distance for a minimum of 102 days in a row.  After meeting that goal, Conway continued with a couple Long Distances more and completed 105 full triathlons in as many days.

An exhausted Conway said, “I only went and did it. 105 full iron distance triathlons in a row which no other human on the planet has ever done. I’m very proud of what the team and I have achieved. Now it’s time to sleep!

“I could not be prouder of what I have achieved. Months of strict training has led me to this moment.

“Keeping my energy levels up and giving my body enough calories to complete this world record has been no mean feat. I have been consuming 7,000 – 8,000 calories a day, not possible through food alone. Optimum Nutrition’s range of products have played a pivotal role in fuelling a performance I knew was in there, somewhere”

Conway was chasing this record on behalf of True Venture, an organization which exists to inspire and support children and young athletes by improving access to positive opportunities through sport so they can connect with and reach their potential.
