If you thought you are fit or if you are still waiting for that one day to set out on your journey to achieve a fit body, this 86-year-old nun will give you serious fitness goals. Sister Madonna Buder may look timid at first, but she is called ‘iron nun’ for a reason.

The nun who runs, swims, cycles and even participates in the challenging Ironman triathlon, has been featured in a new Nike ad with the tagline “Unlimited Youth”, which the nun personifies.

 

The Ironman triathlon comprises of a 3.86 km swim, a 180.25 km cycle race, and a 42.2 km run in one day, and Milind Soman made headlines by completing the race months before he turned 50. But at 86, Sister Madonna has participated in it 45 times.

The video has gone viral and has more than 1.2 million views in 3 days after it hit the internet.
