Nashik Police Commissioner Ravinderkumar Singhal has successfully completed the Ironman triathlon which involves a set of physically grueling activities.
The event, which includes cycling for a staggering 180km, swimming for around 4km and a 42km full marathon, was held in France on Sunday.
The Maharashtra cop, 53, completed the triathlon in 15 hours and 13 minutes as against the stipulated time of 17 hours.
Milind Soman had also completed the race in 2015
Singhal, the Maharashtra-cadre IPS officer, had undergone extensive training before heading to France last week to take part in the international competition, his trainer Dr. Mustafa Topiwala told reporters in Nashik yesterday.
Earlier, model-turned-actor Milind Soman had successfully completed the race in 2015 and Maharashtra's senior IPS officer Krishna Prakash participated in it last year, Topiwala said.
