Local athlete, Paul du Plessis does not believe in half measures and was successful in completing both the Port Elizabeth Iron Man, as well as the Two Oceans marathon on successive weekends!
Paul took part in the Ironman Championship (29 March) as well as the Two Oceans Marathon in Cape Town (4 April).
The Ironman consists of 3,8 km ocean swim, 180 km bike and 42,2 km run. He completed the race in 12:08:15.
Six days later he also completed the Two Oceans Ultra in sub 6 hours.
Paul has been training all summer for the two events and says that nowadays he is enjoying the swim training the most.
“Training in Marina Martinique with the JBay Swim Club is the highlight of the week and the part of the training schedule I looked forward to the most,” said Paul after his amazing 6 day sports extravaganza.
