When the mind is stronger than the body

July 26, 2009

The following video shows the famous video of Julie Moss competing in the 1982 Hawaii Ironman Triathlon Championship. Severally dehydrated in the last 2 miles of the race, Julie Moss shows tremendous determination to cross the finish line.

Her struggle to finish the race was broadcasted live around the world by ABC Sports, and provided inspiration to many. The popularity of Ironman racing became greater ever since…

Originally, she competed in the race as part of her research for her exercise physiology thesis.

Another impressive video showing Sian Welch battling with her body and push its limits further than she already did. Those images are always impressive and almost disturbing.
