Supermodel Milind Soman takes on other roles too: actor, film producer, fitness icon. A competitive swimmer in school and college, Soman was a national champion and won a silver for India at the South Asian Federation Games in 1984. He now completes marathons barefoot. In 2015 he prevailed in the Ironman triathlon in Zurich, swimming 2.4 miles, cycling 112 miles, and running 26.22 miles in 15 hours and 19 minutes – a full hour and 41 minutes ahead of the 17-hour cut-off. In 2017 he completed the body and mind crushing three-day Ultraman in Florida: a 6.2 mile swim and 92 miles of biking on the first day, 171 miles of biking on the second, and a 52.4 mile run on the third. He was 51 then, and was 41st in a field of 44. He holds the Limca record for a Greenathon, which involves completing 1,500 km in 30 days. He’s also the brand ambassador for Pinkathon, a marathon for women.
