Supapiet/Pieter du Preez becomes the first quadriplegic (he is a C6 quad, has no functional tricep movement and no hand or finger movement and is paralysed completely from the nipples down) to do an IronMan. He did this only 6 weeks after breaking his forearm in 3 pieces and still managed a solid time of 13h24min beating nearly a third of the able bodied competitors. Truly amazing feat from a man who is proudly South African.
