He’s endured all kinds of Kitchen Nightmares, but as far as Gordon Ramsay is concerned, nothing comes close to the challenges presented during the hardcore Hawaii Ironman. The celebrity chef completed the big race this past weekend and is now back to his regularly scheduled television appearances.
You know of Gordon Ramsay’s frequent kitchen outbursts, but did you realize that the famous chef is also a talented endurance athlete? Having already completed a number of marathons, the reality star decided to check off another item on his bucket list, signing up for the exclusive Hawaii Ironman.
Chef Ramsay made a point of providing his social media followers with plenty of race updates along the way. At the beginning of the ordeal, he showed off his buff triathlete’s physique in a Twitter photo. Despite stopping for frequent social media breaks, the chef proved quite the competitior during the first two segments of the race, finishing the swim in 1:20:21 and the bike ride in 6:35:54. But things became a bit more difficult during the run, when he clearly began to struggle with fatigue.
He definitely had a hard time completing the marathon, but, having gotten such a great head start during the swim and bike races, Gordon Ramsay was never in any danger of missing the official time limit. After crossing the finish line with an overall time of 14:04:48, the reality chef quickly logged on to share the results, tweeting, “3.86km swim, 180.25km bike ride, 42.2km run & just over 14hrs later-it’s DONE!”
We’d like to extend a hearty congrats to Gordon Ramsay on his completion of the Hawaii Ironman. Are you impressed by the chef’s triathlon results? Sound off in the comments section below!
