Going a step ahead of “Ironman”, IPS officer Krishna Prakash has now completed the “Ultraman” race in Australia!
If you’re curious about what makes a race participant an “Ultraman“, it is–swimming in the Pacific ocean for 10 km, running for 84.3 km and cycling for 421.1 km!
Be informed, dear reader, that running and cycling are not on a plain but through the hilly terrains of Australia!
Krishna Prakash, who had earlier shared the stage with Milind Soman to win the Ironman title, has now become the first Indian Civil Servant to become the Ultraman!
“It is aptly defined by its tagline- Anything less is just a qualifier,” Says Krishna. ” Your good wishes, blessings and unstinting support helped me achieve this grand, daunting and humanly impossible looking feat. I dedicate my race to “Bharat ke veer”- India’s braveheart–an initiative of Central Home Ministry for Central Armed Police Forces Jawans to financially help the families of [the] brave hearts who have sacrificed their lives in the lines of duty…” he adds.
