Performances of the Year: John Wragg

200 Ironman races. That’s 480 miles of swimming, 22,400 miles cycling and 5,240 miles running. And that doesn’t include the countless more┬ámiles put into training for all that.

John Wragg did his first Ironman race in 1988. He finished his 200th at Ironman Cozumel in November, his 17th Ironman of 2015. Those achievements alone deserve a nod as one of our performances of the year, but the fact that Wragg does all this on a replaced hip (the result of a bike accident in 2008) makes all this even more impressive.

Earlier this week City TV named Wragg their athlete of the week. A fitting award for the 65-year-old Torontonian.

CTV also did a story on Wragg earlier this week.
