What does it take to become an ULTRAMAN triathlete and World Record holder? We chat with Kiwi Simon Cochrane about his recent incredible performance at UM Australia. We discuss the challenges he faced, the support from his family and friends and how his journey as an elite level triathlete over the past 10-15 years prepared him for this epic feat.

During our conversation, we break down how he tackled each day and how his preparation in wind and rain made the hard-paced start of the race easier. We discuss the strategic decisions he made as the race unfolded and his fueling strategies in order to recover for the double marathon run.

Simon's record-breaking performance has gained attention worldwide, and he hopes it will help boost the popularity of ultra-endurance events. As for his future plans, he is open to competing in other long-distance races and hopes to participate in the Ultraman World Championships in Hawaii.

Listen in to hear from an inspirational triathlete who's breaking records and pushing the limits of human endurance.
