I enjoy challenging myself and raising awareness for wonderful charities over the years. From jumping out of aeroplanes, to White Collar Boxing and a previous Ironman in 2013.

Oliver's Wish foundation is aiming to raise money in Oliver's memory, for a range of charities that are focused on the support of children and young people. 

After punishing myself in the boxing ring last year, I have decided to push my body to the absolute limit for the foundation this year and support my friend Rob, in raising as much money for his wonderful charity. 

Please help and support these amazing children!

Event details

Ironman Austria - 140.6 miles

Every year Ironman Austria attracts 3.000 athletes from 60 countries, to the perfect triathlon landscape in Klagenfurt. It is known as one of the most beautiful races in the world and has become legendary among athletes. 

In 2017 there will be 2,999 athletes and one hippo called Dan.. Yes it's my second Ironman, but it makes it worse knowing the kind of pain I am going to push my body through. The Ironman is one of the hardest races in the world and will take me to breaking point, many times in the race. 

The Ironman consists of a 2.4-mile swim, 112-bike and a 26.2-mile run. All I can do is my best and hope that I can finish in a respectable time.

Please share this experience with me and help bring awareness to this wonderful charity.

Thank you.
