If you needed more reasons to be head over heels in lust love with Milind Soman, look no further. The Bollywood actor and model just made the country proud by successfully completing the Ironman Triathlon held in Zurich, Switzerland on 19 July, reported Times of India.

The triathlon is considered one of the world's toughest races and had 2,000 participants which included seven Indians.

The triathlon includes a 3.8-km swim, a 180.2-km cycle ride and 42.2-km run raced in that order without a break which the participants are required to complete within 16 hours to win the title of 'Ironman'.

50-year old Milind Soman completed the triathlon in 15 hours and 19 minutes.

“If you are sufficiently aware and monitor your body’s response at every stage in terms of nutrition and pace, it will all come together. I wanted to gift myself something special in my 50th year and I am glad I could do this,” Soman told The Indian Express on phone from Zurich.

He has been practicing for the race for the last few months and had been updating his social media with pictures of his preparations.
