Retired NFL star, Hines Ward, got what thousands of age-groupers want...a free pass to the 2013 Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii.
Ward, who played 14 seasons in the NFL and won Dancing with the Stars, is about to embark on one of his most difficult challenges ever.
"You’d think I'd start small," Ward told the AP. "But I’ve always stepped outside the box, kind of put myself in different situations. It could be a life-changing moment for me again. Winning the Super Bowl was life changing. Winning 'Dancing with the Stars' was life changing. Now imagine going through and competing along with two ordinary folks and we’re experiencing all of this together. It's going to be a great opportunity."
Erik Vervloet, Chief Marketing Officer of WTC said, "Hines may have been one of the most successful pro football players in history, but when it comes to IRONMAN triathlons he'll be a rookie all over again. But with the right coaching, nutrition and attitude, we're confident that he'll show us that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE®."
