80-Year-Old Ironman Competitor Lew Hollander Shares His Longevity Secrets
It may defy logic and reason, but there are 80-something-year-old men racing in—and actually finishing—Ironman competitions.
Just last October, Lew Hollander finished Kona, the legendary end-of-season Ironman race in Kona, Hawaii, at...81-years-old! He became the oldest person EVER to finish an Ironman.
(For the record, 80-year-old France Cokan also finished the same race a short time after Lew.)
How does Hollander do it? What does he do to keep his body in shape and mind sharp to deal with the grueling 2.4-mile swim, 111-mile bike and 26.2-mile run?
Why We Watch talked with Lew about his preparation, workout routine and overall conditioning that allowed him to be able to compete year-in and year-out at such an advanced age.
Find out how this incredible athlete keeps himself in such tremendous shape as he shoots for breaking his own record later this year.
