The Ironman is a birthday gift. For himself.
Soman recently trained for and won the Ironman title, which you can only do if you swim 3.8 km, cycle 180 km and then run 42.2 km in under 16 hours without a break. The triathlon is considered one of the toughest physical challenges in the world and the first Ironman from India was a woman, Anu Vaidyanathan. Soman is one of five Indians to win the title this year, after a qualifying race in Zurich.
He supports good causes
He makes most other six-pack abs look like they’re trying too hard
He runs barefoot, which is stupidly hot
He’s an all-terrain kind of guy
He’s got that salt and pepper thing going on. *Gulp*
Even after all these years, this guy is still a babe magnet
