Denmark’s Mathias Petersen went 7.52.31 to finish 3rd at Ironman Sweden in Kalmar, the fastest ever Ironman debut- in his first attempt at the Iron distance! At only 24, Mathias had no expectations as he stepped up to the Ironman distance. Already twice Danish champion at 70.3 distance, all he really wanted to do was reach the finish line. We hear how his day played out, from a mind blowing 45 minute swim through a 4.16 on the bike, to his 2.47 marathon to round things out. He’s an amazing young talent that clearly has an incredible potential at the distance - if he can secure funding and sponsorship to help him keep racing after he finishes university. Imagine - the only sponsorship this record breaker has, is free shoes from Saucony !
