Man Completed Triathlon While Juggling


[YouTube Clip]

If you think completing the triathlon is hard, try doing it while juggling the entire way (yes, even while swimming). That's what Joe Salter did* last month.

This 31-year-old public school counselor from Pensacola, Fla., pulled off the incredible achievement on April 21 when he swam a quarter-mile while juggling three balls, then biked 16.2 miles while juggling two balls in one hand and ran four miles, also juggling.

Even more amazing: He did this all in 1 hour and 57 minutes

Salter, who has been juggling since he was 8, got into "joggling," the act of juggling while running, back in 2008 and soon became obsessed with that sport's Holy Grail: Completing a complete triathlon while juggling.

"For a long time, it's been a joke among the joggling community," Salter told The Huffington Post. "About 10 months ago, I started training to do it."

Almost as amazing as Salter's feat is the fact that there is indeed a "joggling community."

*yes, a mini-triathlon but still an amazing accomplishment

It's not a "mini" triathlon. There are several distances of triathlons, not just the well-known Ironman. What he did is called a Sprint Triathlon. Thanks!
