Actress Hilary Swank takes on triathlon

Hilary Swank is the latest celebrity to tackle triathlon as a personal challenge. The 42-year-old actress revealed over Instagram earlier this week that she competed in an Ironman 70.3 earlier this month. In her video, she can be seen coming out of the water smiling, looking strong and ready to take on the rest of the race.

It’s unclear which race Swank was participating in as we can’t find her results online.

Swank was a swimmer as a teenager, even competing at the Junior Olympics at the Washington State Championship.

In another video she posted earlier the week, the star can be seen doing weight training in preparation for the event.

“It’s that time! Training for something special!” she captioned the picture. She regularly posts pictures and videos of herself working out in the gym, playing tennis and going for runs on her social media accounts, captioning them #FitnessFriday and #MakeAChoice.

Earlier this year, Melanie Chisholm (also known as “Sporty Spice”) from the pop band Spice Girls took on a local race, the Blenheim Palace Triathlon in Britain.
