ANDERS HOFMAN: PROJECT ICEMAN
Limitations are only perceptions, and if we challenge them, we can prove that we can overcome them. This is the powerful message Anders Hofman delivered by undertaking the first-ever Ironman distance triathlon in Antarctica, the Iceman, in February 2020.
The so-called “Project Iceman” is not an official race or competition but a way to prove that every ordinary person can achieve his or her extraordinary dream. By enduring every challenge and by setting no limits, everything becomes possible.
Anders completed the Iceman challenge by swimming 3.8 km, biking 180 km, and running 42.2 km in the cold land of Antarctica. It took him 72 hours, 54 minutes, and 9 seconds to complete his project.
Curious about the next challenge awaiting Anders? Do not miss an update on his Instagram.
RASMUS KRAGH: OUTDOOR ADVENTURER
Endurance, determination, and perseverance. Thanks to these characteristics, Rasmus is the man that brought our DANISH ENDURANCE Alpine Ski Socks to the highest point on Earth - Mount Everest.
Coming from flat Denmark, Rasmus has indeed a flair for high mountains, and in May 2019, he made his way up to Mount Everest's peak. By succeeding in his endeavor, Rasmus became the first Dane climbing the mountain without the use of artificial oxygen.
To reach Mount Everest's summit, Rasmus followed a rigorous training routine that combined trail and ultra-running with climbing.
