78 year old Nun is Triathlon Champion

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I had the privilege to meet and interview an extraordinary woman in New York. Sister Madonna is a 78 old catholic nun from Spokane, Washington, who was not only dedicating her life to her religious life but also made history in the running scene. At 52 she ran her first race, soon after she completed a marathon in less than 3 1/2 hours. Since then she has participated in 20 Hawaiian Ironman races and 300 Triathlons throughout the world. At 78 she is by far the fastest in her age category. The whole interview lasted for almost one hour and it was amazing and fascinating to hear her stories and learn about her experiences. This is the full version (41:45 min) of the interview I made for the LIFE Voices series. The shorter 13-minute version with various illustration you can find here: vimeo.com/1164787
