ASHLEY HORNER AND TRIATHLON In 2018, Ashely Horner made the headlines as she decided to take on a ’’Woman of Iron” challenge where she will do 50 Ironman Triathlons in 50 Locations in 50 Days’ in order to raise $100,000 for an orphanage in Haiti.
Due to the extreme nature of her challenge, much publicity and media coverage was given leading up to the event. However, the triathlon community didn’t take to this idea quite warmly. They thought that Ashley did not respect the discipline and magnitude of the sport enough.
That someone like her, who had little background in triathlon would embark on a challenge like this for the sake of hype and publicity. Nevertheless, the world watched as Ashely took on her own challenge. Unfortunately, four days into her 50-day challenge, Ashley stopped due to a medical scare.
While many were concerned for her health, many also couldn’t help but give the inevitable “told-you-so” reactions. Ashley may not have proven that she’s a ‘woman of iron’ but this has not deterred her from helping people get fitter and stronger by the day.
