Almost two years after winning the ‘Ironman’ title at a triathlon held in Switzerland in July 2015, model-turned-actor Milind Soman has added another feather to his cap. The fitness-savvy actor who would be turning 52 this November, has now bagged the title of Ultraman.

Along with four other sporting enthusiasts from India, Soman participated in the 2017 Ultraman Florida’s 3-day ‘Ultra-Endurance Event’ that concluded on February 19. The 517.5-kilometer race required each participant to complete a 10 km open water swimming and a 148-kilometre bike ride on the first day, while the second day involved a 276-kilometre bike ride. On the third and final day of the race, participants had to run a stretch of 84-kilometres. All the figures that are more than double that one had to achieve in the Ironman contest.
