Sister Madonna Buder, aka “The Iron Nun,” started training at age 48. She competed in her first Ironman triathlon at age 55 and at age 75 she set the record for the oldest woman to complete an Ironman in the allotted time of less than 17 hours. At 76, she broke her own record, then did it again at age 79. At 82, she became the oldest athlete, male or female, to complete an Ironman. Now 86 years old, with more than 370 triathlons under her belt, 45 of those at Ironman distances, The Iron Nun is still going strong.
