Jonas Colting @ Ultraman 2011 (Day 1)

2-time Ultraman champion Jonas Colting of Sweden is fighting for a third win right now on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Yesterday he had a good 10K (6.2 miles) swim, despite hitting his head in his lead kayak, coming in second one minute behind Rich Roll. Then the rolling 90-mile (145 km) bike leg put Colting in solid lead after day one.

Today's Stage II consists of a 171-mile (276 km) bike ride with tons of climbing.

The final stage III tomorrow will be a gruelling double marathon (84 km, 52 miles).

Ultraman World Championship is a 3-day, 320-mile (515 km) individual ultra event. Entry is limited to 40 participants and is by invitation only. Each competitor is required to have a support crew.

By the way, check out the cool Recovery Pump boots that Jonas is wearing in the video below.
