埃克萊斯霍爾。昔日的酒鬼完成了70項鐵人三項的挑戰

一名前酗酒者已經為慈善事業完成了70項三項全能挑戰,以了解他的 "能力"。

戒酒七年後,他說儘管 "多次 "感到不確定自己是否能夠完成任務,但完成這項任務是 "了不起的"。

他原本打算實現連續70.3英里鐵人三項的吉尼斯世界紀錄,但由於強制休息,他的目標是連續35次70.3英里鐵人三項的世界紀錄,以及一年內完成該距離最多的紀錄。

"整個最後一天是如此超現實,"他說。"這絕對是驚人的,我被嚇到了"。

他感謝當地社區在他的挑戰中給予的 "奇妙 "支持,並補充說。"人們真的與它聯繫在一起,這很好。"

斯通先生說,他與精神健康問題和毒癮鬥爭了好幾年,在他感覺最糟糕的時候,他無法想象會參加多項鐵人三項比賽。

他說,在他的任務中聽到吸毒者或康復者的聲音也是 "非常棒"。

他說,他總共為心理健康和毒癮慈善機構籌集了12,000多英鎊。


A former alcoholic has completed a 70-triathlon challenge for charity to see what he was "capable of".

Having been sober for seven years, he said it was "amazing" to complete the task despite "many" times feeling unsure he would be able to.

He had been intending to achieve a Guinness World Record for 70 consecutive 70.3-mile triathlons, but due to the enforced break, he aimed instead for a world record for 35 consecutive 70.3-mile triathlons, and also the record for the most of that distance in a year.

"The whole final day was so surreal," he said. "It was absolutely amazing, I was blown away."

He thanked the local community for its "fantastic" support during his challenge, adding: "People have really connected with it and it has been great."

Mr Stone said he had battled mental health issues and addiction for several years and could not have imagined doing multiple triathlons when he felt at his worst.

Hearing from addicts or people in recovery during his tasks had also been "fantastic", he said.

In total, he said he had raised more than £12,000 towards mental health and addiction charities.
